A walking tour in southern France : Ezra Pound among the troubadours by Ezra Pound( Book )

9 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rummaging through his papers in 1958, Ezra Pound came across a cache of notebooks dating back to the summer of 1912, when as a young man he had walked the troubadour landscape of southern France. Pound had been fascinated with the poetry of medieval Provence since his college days. His experiments with the complex lyric forms of Arnaut Daniel, Bertran de Born, and others were included in his earliest books of poems; his scholarly pursuits in the field found their way into The Spirit of Romance (1910); and the troubadour mystique was to become a resonant motif of the Cantos
The prophecies : a dual-language edition with parallel text by Nostradamus( Book )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The mysterious quatrains of the sixteenth-century French astrologer Nostradamus have long proved captivating for their predictions. Nostradamus has been credited with anticipating the Great Fire of London, the rise of Adolf Hitler, and the September 11 terrorist attacks. Today, as the world grapples with financial meltdowns, global terrorism, and environmental disasters - as well as the Mayan prediction of the apocalypse on December 12, 2012 - his prophecies of doom have assumed heightened relevance. How has The Prophecies outlasted most books from the Renaissance? This edition considers its legacy in terms of the poetics of the quatrains, published here in a brilliant new translation and with introductory material and notes mapping the cultural, political, and historical forces that resonate throughout Nostradamus's epic, giving it its visionary power."--Publisher's website

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sound has been all but ignored in the current discourse about lyric forms. This collection of essays seeks to readdress the fundamental connections between poetry & sound - connections that go far beyond traditional metrical studies
Selected writings by Gérard de Nerval( Book )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gerard de Nerval (1808-1855), a contemporary of Poe, De Quincey, Gogol and Heine, introduced into French literature a mode of writing rooted in German romanticism yet already recognizably modernist in its explorations of the uncertain borderlines between dream and reality, irony and madness, autobiography and fiction." "This selection of writings - the first such comprehensive gathering to appear in English - provides an overview of Nerval's work as a poet, belletrist, short-story writer and autobiographer. In addition to 'Aurelia', the memoir of his madness, 'Sylvie' (considered a 'masterpiece' by Proust), and the hermetic sonnets of 'The Chimeras', this volume includes Nerval's Doppelganger tales and experimental fictions. Selections from his correspondence demonstrate a lucid awareness of the strategies by which nineteenth-century psychiatry consigned his visionary imagination to the purgatory of mental illness."--Jacket
Emblems of desire : selections from the "Délie" of Maurice Scève by Maurice Scève( Book )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2015 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Often considered a sixteenth-century Mallarme because of the radiant obscurity of his verse, Sceve emerges in these English translations as a poet whose passionate ironies can be compared to such English metaphysicals as Donne while at the same time evoking the oblique self-portraiture of John Ashbery." "Introduced and annotated by the prize-winning translator Richard Sieburth, this bilingual selection from Sceve's Delie (which also includes the fifty emblems illustrating the original edition) will appeal not only to students of French literature and lovers of poetry but also to the broader audience of readers drawn to the visual and verbal universe of the Renaissance."--Jacket
The fullness of time : poems by Gershom Gerhard Scholem( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and German and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This bilingual volume in English and German gathers dark, shockingly prescient poems about Zionism, parodies of German and Jewish philosophers, and poems to other writers, including a series of powerful lyrics to his close friend Walter Benjamin
Lenz by Georg Büchner( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At his death at the age of 24 in 1837, Georg Buchner also left behind Leonce and Lena, Woyzeck, and Danton's Death - bold, psychologically and politically acute plays that were also well ahead of their time. His dramatic works exercised a profound influence on Brecht and Ionesco, as well as on the composer Alban Berg and the filmmaker Werner Hetzog."--BOOK JACKET
The salt smugglers : history of the Abbé de Bucquoy by Gérard de Nerval( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published as a feuilleton in a left-wing newspaper in 1850, The Salt Smugglers provides a political satire of the waning days of France's short-lived Second Republic. With nods to Diderot and Sterne, this shaggy-dog story deals less with contraband salt smugglers than with the subversive power of fiction to transgress legal and esthetic boundaries. By writing what he claimed was a purely documentary account of his picaresque adventures in search of an elusive book recording the true history of a certain seventeenth-century swashbuckler, Nerval sought to deride the press censors of the day who forbade the serial publication of novels in newspapers ' and in the process he provocatively deconstructed existing distinctions between fact and fiction. Never before translated into English and still unavailable as a separately published volume in French, The Salt Smugglers is a pre-postmodern gem of experimental prose. Richard Sieburth's vibrant translation and illuminating afterword remind us why GErard de Nerval's blend of sly irony and acerbic social criticism proved so inspiring to authors as various as Baudelaire, Proust, and Leiris
Stroke by stroke by Henri Michaux( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stroke by Stroke is a pairing of two of Henri Michaux's most suggestive texts, Par des traits (Stroke by Stroke, 1984) and Saisir (Grasp, 1979), written toward the end of his life. The author's idiogrammic ink drawings accompany his poetic explorations of animals, humans, and the origins of language. These texts work at the borders of word and image, interior and exterior, sacred and mundane. In a series of verbal/pictorial gestures at once explosive and contemplative, Michaux emerges at his most Zen."--Publisher's website
On psychological and visionary art : notes from C.G. Jung's lecture on Gérard de Nerval's "Aurélia" by C. G Jung( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On Psychological and Visionary Art brings to publication a significant lecture by Jung, and provides readers with the context to understand Jung&#8217s argument and its importance. The lecture is rich in cultural reference and allusion. Jung himself described the memoir under discussion as being of extraordinary magnitude, and the interpretation he offers at this late stage in his intellectual development represents his mature system at work.&#8212Paul Bishop, author of Analytical Psychology and German Classical Aesthetics"Scholars of Jung&#8217s thought will be grateful to have Jung&#8217s lecture available, to see the fascinating parallels between Nerval&#8217s experiences and those Jung documents in The Red Book, and to study the distinctions between psychological and visionary modes as well as Jung&#8217s further reflections on art. This book is a valuable contribution to Jungian studies."&#8212Beth Darlington, Vassar College
Love sonnets & elegies by Louise Labe( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Louise Labe is commonly regarded as the most original woman poet of the French Renaissance. The daughter of an illiterate rope maker in Lyon, known to her contemporaries for her unusual learning as well as her skills as a singer and lutanist, Labe was in her thirties when she published her complete Works in 1555 and then disappeared from the scene, not to be rediscovered until the nineteenth century. Her love poetry, made famous by Rilke's German versions, is published here with the originals en face and newly rendered into English by award-winning translator Richard Sieburth, who also includes a biographical chronology of the poet, notes, and an informative afterword to this edition. These Love Sonnets and Elegies confirm Labe's reputation as the first modern Sappho"--

A certain Plume by Henri Michaux( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The figure of Plume preoccupied the great Belgian poet Henri Michaux throughout his career. Plume, meaning feather or pen, is a character who drifts from one thing to another, losing shape, taking new forms, at perpetual risk from reality. He is a personification of the imagination as subject to innumerable pratfalls and disgraces, and yet indestructible for all that. In this new bilingual edition, with translations by Richard Sieburth, the entire Plume cycle appears for the first time in English in the form in which Michaux originally published it."--Back cover

Greetings from Angelus : poems by Gershom Gerhard Scholem( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A bilingual collection of poetry from pioneering scholar in Kabbalah and Jewish Mysticism, Gershom Scholem. With this volume, Scholem's work reaches beyond the confines of the academy and enters a literary dialogue with writers and philosophers like Walter Benjamin and Hans Jonas. Gershom Scholem's The Fullness of Time contains dark, lucid political poems about Zionism and assimilation, parodies of German and Jewish philosophers, and poems to writers and friends such as Walter Benjamin, Hans Jonas, Ingeborg Bachmann, S.Y. Agnon, among others. The earliest poems in this volume begin in 1915 and extend to 1967, revealing how poetry played a formative role in Scholem's early life and career. This collection is translated by Richard Sieburth, who comments, "Scholem's acts of poetry still speak to us (and against us) to this very day, simultaneously grounded as they are in the impossibly eternal and profoundly occasional." The volume is edited and introduced by Steven M. Wasserstrom, who carefully situates the poems in Scholem's historical, biographical, and theological landscape"--
