Transcendental studies : a trilogy by Keith Waldrop( Book )

11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This compelling selection of recent work by internationally celebrated poet Keith Waldrop presents three related poem sequences--"Shipwreck in Haven," "Falling in Love through a Description," and "The Plummet of Vitruvius"--In a virtuosic poetic triptych. In these quasi-abstract, experimental lines, collaged words torn from their contexts take on new meanings. Waldrop, a longtime admirer of such artists as the French poet Raymond Queneau and the American painter Robert Motherwell, imposes a tonal override on purloined materials, yet the originals continue to show through. These powerful poems, a

Les fleurs du mal : the complete text of The flowers of evil by Charles Baudelaire( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The poetic masterpiece of the great nineteenth-century writer Charles Baudelaire, The Flowers of Evil is one of the most frequently read and studied works in the French language. In this compelling new translation of Baudelaire's most famous collection, Keith Waldrop recasts the poet's original French alexandrines and other poetic arrangements into versets, a form that hovers between poetry and prose. Maintaining Baudelaire's complex view of sound and structure, Waldrop's translation mirrors the intricacy of the original without attempting to replicate its inimitable verse. The result is a powerful new re-imagining, one that is, almost paradoxically, closer to Baudelaire's own poetry than any previous English translation. Including the six poems banned from the first edition, this Flowers of Evil preserves the complexity, eloquence, and dark humor of its author. Brought here to new life, it is hypnotic, frank, and forceful."--Publisher's website

The form of a city changes faster, alas, than the human heart : one hundred fifty poems (1991-1998) by Jacques Roubaud( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Composed of 150 poems, with a title taken from Charles Baudelaire's Les Fleurs du Mal, and partly a response to the poetry of Raymond Queneau, this collection explores Jacques Roubaud's many poetic modes. He skips from the strict form of the sonnet to the freedom of prose poetry without abandoning the melancholy playfulness that has defined his lengthy writing career. A selection of Roubaud's best recent work, The Form of a City describes not only Paris, but also its people, its writers (and those of the Oulipo in particular), its monumental past, and its unsteady response to change."--Publisher's website

Click-rose by Dominique Fourcade( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Click-Rose, originally published in France in 1984, Dominique Fourcade explores the idea of "rose" in a series of quick "zooming on" and "zeroing in on" scenes, memories, ideas, associations, and other forms. As if taking the opposite tack from Stein's famed anti-symbolist proclamation "a rose is a rose is a rose," Fourcade finds meaning in all notions of rose including its own disappearance. Like a series of linguistic snap-shots, Fourcade's writing stacks up rosy events, memories, and mischief enough for a lifetime
