A collection of new and selected essays by the Pulitzer Prize–winner and former Poet Laureate. In addition to being one of America’s most famous and commended poets, Charles Simic is a prolific and talented essayist. The Life of Images brings together his best prose work written over twenty-five years. A blend of the straightforward, the wry, and the hopeful, the essays in The Life of Images explore subjects ranging from literary criticism to philosophy, photography to Simic’s childhood in a war-torn country. Culled from five collections, each work demonstrates the qualities that make Simic’s poetry so brilliant yet accessible. Whether he is revealing the influence of literature on his childhood development, pondering the relationship between food and comfort, or elegizing the pull to return to a homeland that no longer exists, the legendary poet shares his distinctive take on the world and offers an intimate look into his remarkable mind.

The first Latin American to receive a Nobel Prize for Literature, the Chilean writer Gabriela Mistral (1889-1957) is often characterized as a healing, maternal voice who spoke on behalf of women, indigenous peoples, the disenfranchised, children, and the rural poor. She is that political poet and more: a poet of philosophical meditation, self-consciousness, and daring. This is a book full of surprises and paradoxes. The complexity and structural boldness of these prose-poems, especially the female-erotic prose pieces of her first book, make them an important moment in the history of literary modernism in a tradition that runs from Baudelaire, the North American moderns, and the South American postmodernistas. It's a book that will be eye-opening and informative to the general reader as well as to students of gender studies, cultural studies, literary history, and poetry. This Spanish-English bilingual volume gathers the most famous and representative prose writings of Gabriela Mistral, which have not been as readily available to English-only readers as her poetry. The pieces are grouped into four sections. "Fables, Elegies, and Things of the Earth" includes fifteen of Mistral's most accessible prose-poems. "Prose and Prose-Poems from Desolación / Desolation [1922]" presents all the prose from Mistral's first important book. "Lyrical Biographies" are Mistral's poetic meditations on Saint Francis and Sor Juana de la Cruz. "Literary Essays, Journalism, 'Messages'" collects pieces that reveal Mistral's opinions on a wide range of subjects, including the practice of teaching; the writers Alfonso Reyes, Alfonsina Storni, Rainer Maria Rilke, and Pablo Neruda; Mistral's own writing practices; and her social beliefs. Editor/translator Stephen Tapscott rounds out the volume with a chronology of Mistral's life and a brief introduction to her career and prose.

William Howland, seit Jahren Witwer, reich, stattlich und eigenwillig, begegnet auf abenteuerlichem Streifzug durch den Flußdschungel seiner Ländereien überraschend einer jungen Frau. Das Bild der einsam an einer Quelle waschenden dunkelhäutigen Nausikaa nimmt ihn derart gefangen, daß er sie bittet, ihm als Haushälterin auf seinen Besitz zu folgen. Bald ist die achtzehnjährige Margaret seine Geliebte. In der leidenschaftlichen und zärtlichen Beziehung zu ihr findet er Sinn und Erfüllung seines Lebens. Die stille und geduldige Gefährtin schenkt ihm drei hellhäutige Kinder. Als die Tochter aus seiner ersten Ehe mit der Enkelin Abigail ins Elternhaus zurückkehrt und bald darauf stirbt, wächst das kleine Mädchen mit den gleichaltrigen Kindern ihres Großvaters auf. Die beiden Töchter und der Sohn Margarets sollen im liberalen Norden der Rassendiskriminierung entgehen. Dort werden sie ansässig und heimisch. Abigail dagegen kehrt nach dem Besuch eines exklusiven Colleges mit ihrem Mann, dem Anwalt und Politiker John Tolliver, auf die blühende Farm am Province River zurück. Im Wahlkampf um den Gouverneursposten setzt Tolliver aus Opportunismus die intellektuellen Fähigkeiten der Schwarzen herab, da konfrontiert ihn der Howland-Sohn Robert öffentlich mit der verheimlichten Eheschließung von William und Margaret. Um seine Karriere zu retten, läßt Tolliver Frau und Kinder im Stich. Gegen die verlassene Abigail richtet sich die Wut der weißen Fanatiker ...

"If it be permitted to speak of ‘love at first sound,’ then that’s what I experienced in my first encounter with this poet of prose." So said Thomas Mann of the work of PeterAltenberg. A virtuoso Fin-de-Siècle Viennese innovator of what he called the "telegram style" of writing, Altenberg’s signature short prose straddles the line between the poetic and the prosaic, fiction and observation, harsh verity and whimsical vignette. Inspired by the prose poems of Charles Baudelaire and the Feuilleton—a light journalistic reflection of his day—Altenberg carved out a spare, strikingly modern aesthetic that speaks with an eerie prescience to our own impatient time. Peter Wortsman’s new selection and translation reads like a sly lyrical wink from the turnof-the-century of the telegram to the turn-of-the-millennium of email.

The city is an essential theme of modernity in literature, architecture, photography and film. This book first focuses on ardent reactions to the metropolitan explosion in the nineteenth century, with Baudelaire and Poe as key figures. More recent representations of the city are then investigated, in Europe and the United States. Lombardo reflects on the way in which the changes in human perception created by urbanization are expressed in the various arts, in terms of form and content.
