Poems, prose, and letters by Elizabeth Bishop( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"James Merrill described Elizabeth Bishop's poems as "more wryly radiant, more touching, more unaffectedly intelligent than any written in our lifetime" and called her "our greatest national treasure." Robert Lowell said, "I enjoy her poems more than anybody else's."" "This collection offers a full-scale presentation of a writer of startling originality, at once passionate and reticent, adventurous and perfectionist. It presents all the poetry that Bishop published in her lifetime, in such classic volumes as North & South, A Cold Spring, Questions of Travel, and Geography III. In addition it contains an extensive selection of unpublished poems and drafts of poems (several not previously collected), as well as all her published poetic translations, ranging from a chorus from Aristophanes' The Birds to versions of Brazilian sambas." "Poems, Prose, and Letters brings together as well most of her published prose writings, including stories; reminiscences; travel writing about the places (Nova Scotia, Florida, Brazil) that so profoundly marked her poetry; and literary essays and statements, including a number of pieces published here for the first time. The book is rounded out with a selection of Bishop's engaging and self-revelatory letters. Of the 53 letters included here, written between 1933 and 1979, a considerable number are printed for the first time, and all are presented in their entirety."--Jacket
Elizabeth Bishop and her art( Book )

24 editions published between 1983 and 2004 in English and held by 895 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the first book-length collection to focus on Elizabeth Bishop, this book has become an essential resource on this poet--now recognized as one of America's greatest artists--whose poetry, as Harold Bloom says in his foreword, stands "at the edge where what is most worth saying is all but impossible to say." The volume includes major essays by David Kalstone, Helen Vendler, and Robert Pinsky, among others; a chronology of short articles and reviews, poems, memoirs, and memorials, many by major poets (among them Bishop's three most notable supporters--Marianne Moore, Robert Lowell, and Randall Jarrell); and an illuminating selection of work by Bishop herself, some of which is unavailable anywhere else."--Publisher's description
The collected prose by Elizabeth Bishop( Book )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elizabeth Bishop's prose is not as well-known as her poetry, but she was a dazzling and compelling prose writer, too, as the publication of her letters has shown. Her stories often border on memoir, and vice versa. From her college days, she could find the most astonishing yet thoroughly apt metaphors to illuminate her ideas. This volume--edited by the poet, Pulitzer Prize-winning critic, and Bishop scholar Lloyd Schwartz--includes virtually all her published shorter prose pieces and a number of prose works not published until after her death. Included here are her famous as well as her lesser-known stories, crucial memoirs, literary and travel essays, book reviews, and--for the first time--the original draft of Brazil, the Life World Library volume she repudiated in its published version, as well as the relevant correspondence between Bishop and the poet Anne Stevenson while the latter was writing the first book-length critical study of Bishop's work
The prints of Michael Mazur with a catalogue raisonné 1956-1999 by T. Victoria Hansen( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Michael Mazur is unique among contemporary artists, equally gifted as a painter and graphic artist. Steeped in the history of printmaking, he has balanced in his work graphic experimentation and innovation, technical virtuosity, and a wealth of unforgettable images. Mazur is a humanist, all his imagery rooted in the natural world. He has also played a leading role in the contemporary revival of the monotype, a major means of expression that occupies a central place in his own work." "This volume brings together essays by four leading authorities, covering various aspects of Mazur's life and career."--Jacket

Cairo traffic by Lloyd Schwartz( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Cairo Traffic, his third book of poems, Lloyd Schwartz asks the Sphinx to explain the riddle "about, you know, / Time and Power and Families-the one you think you / have the answer to. Tell me your answer! / No ... don't." The search for answers takes the poet to some surprising, often phantasmagoric places, and back again to the self, to dreams, to home, and even to the nursing home where his mother-sphinxlike herself-becomes the person asking the dark questions and providing some unexpected answers. These extraordinary narratives-funny and frightening, seductive and profoundly moving-explore the intersections of character and language, the places where common speech mysteriously transforms itself into poetry. This book, which includes several translations of contemporary Brazilian poems, confirms Schwartz's growing reputation as an intensely compelling and original poet."--Publisher description

Little kisses by Lloyd Schwartz( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Called "the master of the poetic one-liner" by the New York Times, acclaimed poet and critic Lloyd Schwartz takes his characteristic tragicomic view of life to some unexpected and disturbing places in this, his fourth book of poetry. Here are poignant and comic poems about personal loss--the mysterious disappearance of his oldest friend, his mother's failing memory, a precious gold ring gone missing--along with uneasy love poems and poems about family, identity, travel, and art with all of its potentially recuperative power. Humane, deeply moving, and curiously hopeful, these poems are distinguished by their unsentimental but heartbreaking tenderness, pitch-perfect ear for dialogue, formal surprises, and exuberant sense of humor
Poems ; Prose by Elizabeth Bishop( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elizabeth Bishop is one of America's greatest writers, and her art is loved and admired by readers and fellow poets alike. The poems that make up Bishop's small and select body of work display honesty and humor, grief and acceptance, observing nature and human nature with painstaking accuracy. Her poems often start outwardly, with geography and landscape--from New England and Nova Scotia, where she grew up, to Florida and Brazil, where she later lived-- and move inexorably toward "the interior, " exploring as they do fundamental questions of knowledge and perception, love and solitude, and the ability or inability of form to control chaos

The sleeve should be illegal & other reflections on art at the Frick by Frick Collection( Book )

1 edition published in 2021 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Explore the treasures of The Frick Collection through the eyes of a diverse group of contemporary writers, artists and other cultural figures, from George Condo, Lydia Davis and Lena Dunham to Abbi Jacobson and Edmund White. A cultural haven for museum goers in New York and beyond, The Frick Collection holds masterpieces by some of the most celebrated artists in the Western tradition, among them Bellini, Gainsborough, Goya, Rembrandt, Vermeer and Whistler -- installed in a Gilded Age mansion on Fifth Avenue. This book includes 61 reflections on the Frick's preeminent collection, with the contributors writing about an artwork that has personal significance, sharing how it has moved, challenged, puzzled or inspired them. Each text is accompanied by an illustration of the artwork. For example, writer Jonathan Lethem tells how he started going to the Frick as a teenager, to gaze at Hans Holbein's portraits of Thomas Cromwell and Sir Thomas More. Historian Simon Schama revels in Turner's Mortlake Terrace: Early Summer Morning, which reminds him of his own childhood growing up next to the River Thames. This engaging anthology attests to the inspirational power of art and reminds us that there is no one way to look." --
