Most widely held works by Pierre Joris
Poems for the millennium by Jeffrey Cane Robinson( Book )

18 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in English and held by 1,516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first volume offers three "galleries" of individual poets - figures such as Mallarmé, Stein Rilke Tzara, Mayakovsky, Pound, H.D., Vallejo, Artaud, Césaire, and Tsvetaeva - along with a sampling of the most significant pre-World War II movements in poetry and the other arts: Futurism, Expressionism, Dada, Surrealism, "Objectivism", Negritude. In the second volume editors Jerome Rothenberg and Pierre Joris have extended the gathering to the present day. In the third volume editors Jerome Rothenberg and Jeffrey C. Robinson bring a radically new interpretation to the poetry of the preceding century, viewing the work of the romantic and postromantic poets as an international, collective, often utopian enterprise that became the foundation of experimental modernism

Breathturn into timestead : the collected later poetry : a bilingual edition by Paul Celan( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Haunting poems from one of the twentieth century's groundbreaking poets Paul Celan, one of the greatest German-language poets of the twentieth century, created brilliant works of pure musicality and stark imagery in tension with the haunting memories of his life as a Romanian Jew during the Holocaust. Breathturn into Timestead: The Collected Later Poetry gathers the five final volumes of his life's work in a bilingual edition, translated and with commentary by the award-winning poet and translator Pierre Joris. This collection displays a mature writer at the height of his talents, following what Celan himself called the "turn" (die "Wende") of his work away from the lush, surreal metaphors of his earlier verse. Given "the sinister events in its memory," Celan wrote, the language of poetry has to become "more sober, more factual. 'grayer.'" He abandoned the richer music of lyric poems, paring his compositions down to increase the accuracy of the language that now "does not transfigure or render 'poetical'; it names, it posits, it tries to measure the area of the given and the possible." In his need for an inhabitable post-Holocaust world that held the memory and anguish of that history, Celan experimented with a bold new poetics. Breathturn into Timestead reveals a poet undergoing one of the most profound artistic reinventions of the twentieth century--creating a poetry grounded in his painful personal history and the ravages of postwar Europe"--
Paul Celan : selections by Paul Celan( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The best introduction to the work of Paul Celan, this anthology offers a broad collection of his writing in unsurpassed English translations along with a wealth of commentaries by major writers and philosophers. The present selection is based on Celan's own 1968 selected poems, though enlarged to include both earlier and later poems, as well as two prose works, The Meridian, Celan's core statement on poetics, and the narrative Conversation in the Mountains. This volume also includes letters to Celan's wife, the artist Gisele Celan-Lestrange; to his friend Erich Einhorn; and to Rene Char and Jean-Paul Sartre--all appearing here for the first time in English. --New York Review of Books
The meridian : final version--drafts--materials by Paul Celan( Book )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally Presented As a Speech to the German Academy for Language and Poetry on the occasion of Celan's acceptance of the Georg Büchner Prize for literature, The Meridian is arguably the most important poetological statement of the second half of the twentieth century. Much more than a personal statement or occasional piece, it is a meditation on the state of poetry and art in general, and a rigorous attempt to account for what poetry is, can, and must be after the Holocaust. This definitive historico-critical edition, available for the first time in English, presents not only the first drafts, but also a vast array of notes and preparatory work, and a brief essay on Osip Mandelstam, all of which work to expand the field of reference of Celan's manifesto and reveal its true scope. Rich commentaries clarify Celan's notes to authors as diverse as Leibniz, Scheler, Kafka, Hofmannsthal, Husserl, Pascal, Valéry, Heidegger, and others

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lightduress by Paul Celan( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Continuing the work he began with Breathturn and Threadsuns, Celan further explores the great poetic Wende or change that characterized his last three works. Once again this bilingual volume, translated in this edition for the first time in English, reveals the importance of the great Romanian-German poet, who lived for most of his life in France. Translator Pierre Joris has achieved a great feat in bringing these volumes into the English language. --Green Integer

Translated from the German by Pierre Joris, this book is the first of three titles of Celan's poetry written in his last years before suicide. Published originally by Sun & Moon Press, this volume was a major success and helped, along with other titles published in mid 1990s, to reevaluate Celan's significance in the 20th century. --Green Integer
