Selected poems by Natalʹi︠a︡ Gorbanevskai︠a︡( Book )

11 editions published between 1972 and 2011 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1969 Natalya Gorbanevskaya was sentenced to imprisonment in a Soviet psychiatric hospital for her dissident activities; in 1972 Carcanet published Daniel Weissbort's first translations of her poems, with a transcript of her trial. In this new, enlarged selection of translations he returns to a poet who has continued, in exile, to engage with the cause of human freedom and the poetic traditions of her homeland. Anna Akhmatova regarded Gorbanevskaya as one of the small group of poets who kept Russian poetry alive. Weissbort, one of the leading translators of Russian poetry in Britain, expands
Selected translations by Ted Hughes( Book )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Known (with Philip Larkin) as the most distinctly English of the post-war British poets, Ted Hughes was a boundlessly curious reader and translator of poetry from other languages. This selection of his translations at once rounds out the publication of his major work and gives us a fresh view of his poetic achievement."--Jacket
Twentieth century Russian poetry : silver and steel : an anthology by Yevgeny Aleksandrovich Yevtushenko( Book )

8 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This massive tome effectively captures the spirit and passion of Russian poetry in this century. Yevtushenko provides context by dividing the text into four clearly delineated sections and introducing each poet with an extensive preface; in addition, important terms are cross-referenced to a helpful glossary. While wide-ranging, the anthology remains judicious in its selection, offering outpourings from giants like Mandelstam or Akhmatova and perhaps a single poem from lesser lights. --Library Journal

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thomas Lovell Beddoes (1803-1849) is a latter-day Jacobean, the author of blank verse plays and poems which are as bold, wild and fresh as they are archaic in manner. We read his plays less for character and drama than for the miracles that occur in their language. He is a poet of fragments. His mastery of lyric and ballad make his work immediately accessible; an obsession with death aligns him with the Decadents."--BOOK JACKET
