World rock art by Jean Clottes( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 607 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scenes in celebrated prehistoric caves, from splendid animal and human figures to sexual, religious, and geometrical forms, millions of images throughout the world testify to the worldviews of traditional peoples, many of them long vanished. World Rock Art discusses the discovery of rock art by the West, profiles important sites, explains how the art was made, and considers how it can be dated. It then explores the meanings of these often enigmatic images and discusses their significance
Charting the here of there : French & American poetry in translation in literary magazines, 1850-2002 by Guy Bennett( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is an undeniable, yet indefinable bond joining French and American poetry. It can be seen in the ever increasing numbers of translations published in the two countries ... and is also evident in the shapes and directions taken by the poetry of both nations, which have occasionally overlapped to the point of producing works that, by their very nature, are truly bi-national creations. ... While the reasons for this mutual fascination may be difficult to identify, examples of it are not hard to come by--one need look no further than the pages of literary magazines, where excerpts from an ongoing Franco-American dialogue in poetry are readily apparent"--Page 9
Carnal love : poems by Henri Deluy( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most noted of French poets writing today, Henri Deluy explores the various aspects of love in this major collection of poetry, first published in French in 1994. The love of love, of gestures, of smells, of the activities of the body, of the taste of food and alcohol, of the sea, of the ebb and flow of politics, of voluptuousness itself - these and others serve as subjects for Deluy's greatest loves: the love of writing, of the order and disorders of poetry, of the flavor of words. Carnal Love represents both a sensual and intellectual passion for the living and the dead. English-language readers will discover in the first translation of this great French poet a truly original voice that encompasses the ordinary and the unusual, the banal and the magical simultaneously

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seven visions by Sergeĭ Paradzhanov( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born in Tblissi in 1924, Armenian director Sergei Paradjanov came to International attention with his 1964 film Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors, which won 16 awards in festivals around the world. His success was not to last, however. An outspoken critic of the overly harsh treatment of writers and intellectuals in the then Soviet Union, Paradjanov was quickly blacklisted and repeatedly imprisoned, at one point spending five years in a heavy labor camp." "Shortly before his death from cancer in 1990, Paradjanov collected together the scenarios of six films he was never permitted to make. To these he added the scenario of Sayat-Nova, so that this work may be known in its original, complete form. As Galia Ackerman writes in her introduction, Seven Visions "restores to the history of world cinema what the Soviet regime successfully suppressed for so long." This translation, the first book either by or on Paradjanov to appear in English, bears ample witness to the talent of this unique artist, a director that Tarkovsky considered "a genius.""--BOOK JACKET

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a study of opera by the great French poet, art critic, and anthropologist Michel Leiris. In Operratics Leiris turns his mind to one of his major loves, opera. Approaching the subject as a lover of music without any formal musical training, he discerns fascinating patterns in cultural movements in opera and reveals his personal tastes in this great genre."--Jacket
Toward total poetry by Adriano Spatola( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The problem is not only to transform poetry into something new compared to poetic tradition, but above all that through this transformation poetry become a total art. New experimental poetry is no longer exclusively interpretable as a force modifying the usual instruments of poetic creation, or as the necessity of overcoming national linguistic barriers to an explicitly international poetry. Today it seeks to become a total medium, to escape all limitations, to include theater, photography, music, painting, typography, cinematographic techniques, and every other aspect of culture, in a utopian ambition to return to origins."--BOOK JACKET
