"The Oxford Guide to Literature in English Translation highlights the place of translation in our culture, encouraging awareness of the process of translating and the choices involved, making the translator more 'visible'. Concentrating on major writers and works, it covers translations out of many languages, from Greek to Hungarian, Korean to Turkish. For some works (e.g. Virgil's Aeneid) which have been much translated, the discussion is historical and critical, showing how translation has evolved over the centuries and bringing out the differences between versions. Elsewhere, with less familiar literatures, the Guide examines the extent to which translation has done justice to the range of work available."

Douze poèmes liés entre eux par la continuité narrative relatent l'avancée de douze soldats dans une tempête de neige. Rédigée en janvier 1918, cette oeuvre a pour thème central l'âme de la révolution et sera revendiquée comme étendard par les bolcheviques. Son rythme novateur crée le vers tonique libre russe, l'effacement de la distinction entre la cadence du vers et celle de la langue parlée

These hours of solitude and meditation are the only time of the day when I am completely myself'Reveries of the Solitary Walker is Rousseau's last great work, the product of his final years of exile from the society that condemned his political and religious views. Returning to Paris the philosopher determines to keep a faithful record of the thoughts and ideas that come to him on his perambulations. Part reminiscence, part reflection, enlivened by anecdote and encounters, the Reveries form a kind of sequel to his Confessions, but they are more introspectiveand less defensive: Rousseau finds h

Enlightenment and emancipation ( Book )
4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
" The Enlightenment has been represented in radically opposing ways: on the one hand, as the throwing off of the chains of superstition, custom, and usurped authority; on the other hand, in the Romantic period, but also more recently, as what Michel Foucault termed "the great confinement," in which "mind-forged manacles" imprison the free and irrational spirit. The debate about the "Enlightenment project" remains a topical one, which can still arouse fierce passions. This collection of essays by distinguished scholars from various disciplines addresses the central question: "Was Enlightenment a force for emancipation?" Their responses, working from within, and frequently across the disciplinary lines of history, political science, economics, music, literature, aesthetics, art history, and film, reveal unsuspected connections and divergences even between well-known figures and texts. In their turn, the essays suggest the need for further inquiry in areas that turn out to be very far from closed. The volume considers major writings in unusual juxtaposition; highlights new figures of importance; and demonstrates familiar texts to embody strange implications."--Publisher's website

Field-Russia by Gennadiĭ Aĭgi ( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The death of Gennady Aygi on February 21, 2006 was a terrible loss to contemporary world poetry. Field-Russia is a book of poems Aygi arranged shortly before his death. It begins with an informal conversation about his thoughts on poetry, and opens out into a series of little lyric "books"--Field-Russia, Time of the Ravines, and Final Departure - that together form a part of what Aygi called his "life-book." The collection closes with a poetic tribute to Paul Celan, followed by a Afterword by Peter France. A vanguardist nature poet with roots in ancient shamanistic traditions, Aygi, like Akhmatova and Celan before him, has left us with those most necessary words to dwell in - a quiet, spiritual poetry in a time of uprootedness and despair."--Jacket
