Citizens of beauty : poems of Jean Sénac by Jean Sénac( )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 1,130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Now available in English for the first time, translated by the poet Jack Hirschman, this beautiful collection of poems by the Algerian poet Jean Sňac (1926-1973) was originally published when he was forty-one. Sňac represented the hope of the new generation of Algerians who were celebrating their independence from France after 130 years of colonialism, and in the tradition of Ren ̌Char and the early Albert Camus, he portrayed an Algeria whose land and people would finally sing with their own voice. Sňac celebrates revolution, love, and the body, beginning with the resonant verses: "And now we'll sing love / for there's no Revolution without love." He sang, as well, of beauty: "No morning without smiling. / Beauty on our lips is one continuous fruit."
Antonin Artaud anthology by Antonin Artaud( Book )

5 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""I am the man," wrote Artaud, "who has best charted his inmost self." Antonin Artaud was a great poet who, like Poe, Holderlin, and Nerval, wanted to live in the infinite and asked that the human spirit burn in absolute freedom. To society, he was a madman. Artaud, however, was not insane but in luciferian pursuit of what society keeps hidden. The man who wrote Van Gogh the Man Suicided by Society raged against the insanity of social institutions with insight that proves more prescient with every passing year. Today, as Artaud's vatic thunder still crashes above the "larval confusion" he despised, what is most striking in his writings is an extravagant lucidity. This collection gives us quintessential Artaud on the occult, magic, the theater, mind and body, the cosmos, rebellion, and revolution in its deepest sense."--BOOK JACTET

A truck approaches. Suddenly, he pushes the child at the wheels. As she doesn't die, he pushes her a second time ... Prosecuted two years later in criminal court, Ahmed is declared insane and committed to an asylum.

When he reads aloud, the words take fire, and on the page they crackle and spark. Jack Hirschman is a San Francisco poet, translator and editor.

He is the author of numerous books of poetry, plus some forty-five translations from a half a dozen languages, as well the editor of anthologies and journals. Publisher's note
