The original 1939 notebook of A return to the native land : bilingual edition by Aimé Césaire( )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and French and held by 1,147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aimé Césaire's masterpiece, Notebook of a Return to the Native Land, is a work of immense cultural significance and beauty. This long poem was the beginning of Césaire's quest for négritude, and it became an anthem of blacks around the world. Commentary on Césaire's work has often focused on its Cold War and inticolonialist rhetoric - material that Césaire only added in 1956. The original 1939 version of the poem, here in French and in its first English translation, reveals a work that is both spiritual and cultural in structure, tone, and thrust. This Wesleyan edition includes the original illustrations by Wilfredo Lam, and an introduction, notes, and chronology by A. James Arnold. --from inside jacket

César Vallejo : the complete posthumous poetry by César Vallejo( Book )

6 editions published between 1978 and 1980 in English and held by 855 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Translation judges for the National Book Awards--Richard Miller, Alastair Reid, Eliot Weinberger--cited Clayton Eshleman and Jose Rubia Barcia's translation of Cesar Vallejo's The Complete Posthumous Poetry as follows: "This, the first National Book Award to be given to a translation of modern poetry, is a recognition of Clayton Eshleman's seventeen-year apprenticeship to perhaps the most difficult poetry in the Spanish language. Eshleman and his present collaborator, Jose Rubia Barcia, have not only rendered these complex poems into brilliant and living English, but have also established a definitive Spanish test based on Vallejo's densely rewritten manuscripts. In recreating this modern master in English, they have also made a considerable addition to poetry in our language."
Poemas humanos = Human Poems by César Vallejo( Book )

9 editions published between 1968 and 1969 in English and Spanish and held by 669 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

C. Vallejo, l'un des grands poètes de langue espagnole du XXe siècle, fut également connu pour ses idéaux communistes et son engagement pendant la guerre civile espagnole. Ecrits entre 1924 et 1937, ces poèmes traduisent, sur le ton de la mélancolie et de la révolte, la souffrance physique et l'éloignement de la terre natale.--[Memento]

Notebook of a return to the native land by Aimé Césaire( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aime Cesaire is most well known as the co-creator (with Leopold Senghor) of the concept of negritude. His long poem Notebook of a Return to the Native Land, written at the end of World War II, is a masterpiece of immense cultural significance and beauty and became an anthem of Blacks around the world. Clayton Eshleman and Annette Smith achieve a laudable adaptation of Cesaire's work to English by clarifying double meanings, stretching syntax, and finding equivalent English puns, all while remaining remarkably true to the French text. Andre Breton's introduction, "A Great Black Poet," situates the text and provides a moving tribute to Cesaire."--Jacket
Novices : a study of poetic apprenticeship by Clayton Eshleman( Book )

6 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Given giving : selected poems of Michel Deguy by Michel Deguy( Book )

4 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Solar throat slashed : the unexpurgated 1948 edition by Aimé Césaire( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Soleil cou coupé (Solar Throat Slashed) is Aimé Césaire's most explosive collection of poetry. Animistically dense, charged with eroticism and blasphemy, and imbued with an African and Vodun spirituality, this book takes the French surrealist adventure to new heights and depths. A Césaire poem is an intersection at which metaphoric traceries create historically aware nexuses of thought and experience, jagged solidarity, apocalyptic surgery, and solar dynamite. The original 1948 French edition of Soleil cou coupé has a dense magico-religious frame of reference. In the late 1950s, Césaire was increasingly politically focused and seeking a wider audience, when he, in effect, gelded the 1948 text--eliminating 31 of the 72 poems, and editing another 29. Until now, only the revised 1961 edition, called Cadastre, has been translated. The revised text lacks the radical originality of Soleil cou coupé. This Wesleyan edition presents all the original poems en face with the new English translations.--From publisher description

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Complete Poetry of Aimé Césaire gathers all of Césaire's celebrate verse into one bilingual edition. The French portion is comprised of newly established first editions of Césaire's poetic œuvre made available in French in 2014 under the title Poésie, Théâtre, Essais et Discours, edited by A. J. Arnold and an international team of specialists. To prepare the English translations, the translators started afresh from this French edition. Included here are translations of first editions of the poet's early work, prior to political interventions in the texts after 1955, revealing a new understanding of Césaire's aesthetic and political trajectory. A truly comprehensive picture of Césaire's poetry and poetics is made possible thanks to a thorough set of notes covering variants, historical and cultural references, and recurring figures and structures, a scholarly introduction and a glossary. This book provides a new cornerstone for readers and scholars in 20th century poetry, African diasporic literature, and postcolonial studies. -- from dust jacket
