Imperfect thirst by Galway Kinnell( Book )

17 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 652 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Galway Kinnell's twelfth collection of poems, Imperfect Thirst, is powerful and thrilling, beautifully crafted and astonishingly candid. In it, Kinnell approaches elemental subjects with a remarkable balance of good nature and holy dread. It includes re-visions of moments of childhood and youth; reflections on the relationship between humans and the other creatures; poems bearing on music, language, sex, mortality; five poems based on the form of the Persian ghazal; love poems; and a tender evocation of a daughter taking care of her old father. Five longer poems close the book: a meditation on the lasting reverberations of childhood trauma; a lively ode to excrement; a disquisition on flies which weaves together the observations of thirteen other poets; a looking back at the past and a child's looking forward; and an elegy for a beloved sister. Imperfect Thirst is a bold, exact, passionate book from a poet at the height of his powers

The essential Whitman by Walt Whitman( Book )

5 editions published between 1987 and 2006 in English and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The poems of Walt Whitman meant little to me when I read them in high school and college. Luckily, when I was teaching at the University of Grenoble in my late twenties, I was required to give a course on Whitman. My experience of Leaves of Grass then was intense ... Soon I understood that poetry could be transcendent, hymn-like, a cosmic song, and yet remain idolatrously attached to the creatures and things of our world ... Once again, as when I first began writing, it seemed it might be possible to say everything in poetry."--Publisher's website
The essential Rilke by Rainer Maria Rilke( Book )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and German and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Galway Kinnell and co-translator Hannah Liebmann comes The Essential Rilke, with newly translated selections of the poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke and an informative introduction. This collection also features all of the poems in their original German on facing pages." "German poet Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926) enjoys ever-increasing popularity. Throughout his poetry, Rilke addresses questions of how to live and relate to the world in a voice that is simultaneously prophetic and intensely personal. Kinnell and Liebmann's translations put accuracy first and yet retain the power and grace of poetry."--Jacket
