Mozart's third brain by Göran Sonnevi( )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Winner of the 2006 Nordic Council's Literature Prize, Swedish writer Goran Sonnevi is undoubtedly one of the most important poets working today. In Mozart's Third Brain, his thirteenth book of verse, he attempts 'a commentary on everything' - politics, current events, mathematics, love, ethics, music, philosophy, nature. Through the impeccable skill of award-winning translator Rika Lesser, Sonnevi's long-form poem comes to life in English with the full force of its loose, fractured, and radiating intensity. A poetic tour de force that darts about dynamically and imaginatively, Mozart's Third Brain weaves an elaborate web of associations as the poet tries to integrate his private consciousness with the world around him. Through Lesser's translation and preface, and an enlightening foreword by Rosanna Warren, readers of English will finally gain access to this masterpiece

In the novel, Siddhartha, a young man, leaves his family for a contemplative life, then, restless, discards it for one of the flesh.

This sound signals the true beginning of his life -- the beginning of suffering, rejection, peace, and, finally, wisdom

The brazen plagiarist : selected poems by Kikē Dēmoula( Book )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kiki Demoula's poetry - the most praised and prized in xcontemporary Greek literature - is a paradox, both mysteriously intricate and widely popular. Her magic lens defamiliarizes all that is familiar, compressing distance between far-flung realms, conflating concrete and abstract, literal and metaphorical, physical and metaphysical. [She] superimposes absurdity on rationality, caustic irony on dark melancholy. ..."--Book jacket
