The collected poems of Muriel Rukeyser by Muriel Rukeyser( )

14 editions published between 1978 and 2006 in English and held by 1,716 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Muriel Rukeyser held a visionary belief in the human capacity to create social change through language. She earned an international reputation as a powerful voice against enforced silences of all kind, against the violence of war, poverty, and racism. Her eloquent poetry of witness-of the Scottsboro Nine, the Spanish Civil War, the poisoning of the Gauley Bridge laborers-split the darkness covering a shameful world. In addition to the complete texts of her twelve previously published books, this volume also features new poems discovered by the editors; Rukeyser's translations, including the first English translations of Octavio Paz's work; early work by Rukeyser not previously published in book form; and the controversial book-length poem Wake Island. An introduction by the editors traces Rukeyser's life and literary reputation and complements discerning annotations and textual notes to the poems. - Publisher

Early poems, 1935-1955 by Octavio Paz( Book )

11 editions published between 1973 and 1990 in English and Spanish and held by 1,048 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The growth of the work of Octavio Paz makes it clear that he is a great world-poet. His poetry bears both native Mexico and Spanish-European influences. Images abound from Mexico's Indian past and her colorful contemporary life and landscape; striking portraits bring to life moments from his country's history which he then translates to the modern scene. Often revealing a suppressed violence, Paz's poems clearly bear the stamp of the cosmopolitan writer, critic, and diplomat. -- Publisher description
Selected poems by Muriel Rukeyser( Book )

19 editions published between 1951 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 880 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Muriel Rukeyser (1913-80) published her first book--the powerfully experimental Theory of flight--at age twenty-two, and went on to an adventurous and prolific career as poet, translator, and political activist. Her expansive energies sought a poetry in which politics, geography, sexuality, mythology, and autobiography could find fused and fluid expression. From her early, cinematic "Poem out of childhood" through excerpts from her long wartime "Letter to the front" to her late "Resurrection of the right side," written after her stroke, this selection represents the many sides and selves of a major poet

A Muriel Rukeyser reader by Muriel Rukeyser( Book )

8 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In many ways," writes Adrienne Rich in her Introduction, "Muriel Rukeyser was beyond her time - and seems, at the edge of the twenty-first century, to have grasped resources we are only now beginning to reach for: the connections between history and the body, memory and politics, sexuality and public space, poetry and physical science, and much else. She spoke as a poet, first and foremost; but she spoke also as a thinking activist, biographer, traveler, explorer of her country's psychic geography." A Muriel Rukeyser Reader gathers a generous selection of poetry and prose spanning the forty-five years of Rukeyser's writing life. Bringing together works only sparsely anthologized or long out of print, this book is a resource for understanding the range, depth, and originality of this pioneering writer whom the poet Anne Sexton named "Muriel, mother of everyone."
