Dark conceit; the making of allegory by Edwin Honig( Book )

51 editions published between 1959 and 1982 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores the methods and ideas that go into the making of literary allegory. The first chapter estimates the biases that obscure the subject, then proposes a different view. The second chapter surveys the changing concept of allegory from a perspective that leads into our own times. In the third chapter the focus is on the typical constructs of allegorical narration, and in the fourth chapter, on the development of three essential verbal modes in allegorical fiction. And, because the best allegory embodies an ideal which is integral to its methods, the final chapter discusses the role of such ideals in allegory and in related types of fiction."--Preface

The poet's other voice : conversations on literary translation by Edwin Honig( Book )

14 editions published between 1985 and 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Collection includes conversations with Willard Trask, John Hollander, Herbert Mason, Ben Belitt, Richard Wilbur, Robert Fitzgerald, Max Hayward, Edmund Keeley, Octavio Paz, Michael Hamberger, Christopher Middleton. Twelve distinguished translators share their thoughts on the art and practice of literary translation in this lively series of interviews. Although the common subject is the translation of poetry, the conversations range across a field of related topics: how each person got started as a translator, how each goes about the work, the qualities that distinguish a great translation from a merely serviceable one, the theoretic issues posed by poetic translation, the barriers of culture and time, the practical details of rendering a poem from one language to the next. --University of Massachusetts Press

Fernando Pessoa is Portugalʹs most important contemporary poet. He wrote under several identities, which he called heteronyms: Albet Caeiro, Alvaro de Campos, Ricardo Reis, and Bernardo Soares.

This volume brings back into print the comprehensive collection of his work published by Ecco Press in 1986

Calderon spins a metaphysical tale about Segisimund, who is imprisoned by his father, the King, because it is prophesied that Segisimund would become a tyrant.

He subsequently escapes and learns to rule wisely

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A distinguished poet, translator, critic and teacher, Edwin Honig wrote dozens of books and poems that attracted critical praise around the world. His seminal translations awakened English-speaking readers to previously overlooked literary giants, resulting in honorary knighthoods from the king of Spain and the president of Portugal. In FIRST COUSIN ONCE REMOVED, acclaimed documentary filmmaker Alan Berliner paints a deeply personal portrait of his "good friend, cousin and mentor" as Honig journeys through the ravages of Alzheimer's disease and memory loss. A stark reminder of the profound role memory plays in everyone's life, this is a moving essay on the fragility of being human
