Stanley Burnshaw began to publish poems in the 1920s and founded his own verse journal in 1925. After serving as coeditor and drama critic of the New Masses weekly (1934-1936), he entered book publishing, directing the Dryden Press until 1958, when he joined Henry Holt. The first of his nineteen earlier works, André Spire and His Poetry, appeared in 1934 and the last in 1990, A Stanley Burnshaw Reader, with an introduction by Denis Donoghue. The present volume—the definitive Burnshaw collection—offers all the poems he wishes to preserve and a full representation of his prose, including My Friend, My Father in its entirety. The Collected Poems and Selected Prose is vital reading for anyone wishing to be fully acquainted with the man whom Karl Shapiro called "one of the best-respected men of letters of our time."

My Toughest Mentor

Theodore Roethke and William Carlos Williams (1940-1948)

At a time when Theodore Roethke was finding his poetic voice, he called William Carlos Williams "my toughest mentor." This study examines the discussion about poetry that lives in their correspondence and the poems they sent to each other between 1940-48. From special collections at Yale University and the University of Washington, Robert Kusch has arranged the letters in sequence, and he approaches them both as cultural critic and reader-respondent. Overall, he argues that Williams issued a series of challenges to Roethke, and these challenges changed the direction and scope of Roethke's art. The book has pointed, unconventional advice for teachers of creative writing and for those who are learning the art.

Touched With Fire

The definitive work on the profound and surprising links between manic-depression and creativity, from the bestselling psychologist of bipolar disorders who wrote An Unquiet Mind. One of the foremost psychologists in America, “Kay Jamison is plainly among the few who have a profound understanding of the relationship that exists between art and madness” (William Styron). The anguished and volatile intensity associated with the artistic temperament was once thought to be a symptom of genius or eccentricity peculiar to artists, writers, and musicians. Her work, based on her study as a clinical psychologist and researcher in mood disorders, reveals that many artists subject to exalted highs and despairing lows were in fact engaged in a struggle with clinically identifiable manic-depressive illness. Jamison presents proof of the biological foundations of this disease and applies what is known about the illness to the lives and works of some of the world's greatest artists including Lord Byron, Vincent Van Gogh, and Virginia Woolf.

"In Piccolo's poems we meet a Sicily latent in the country of the tourist guides and the history books, but it was Piccolo far more than, say, his cousin Lampedusa, who was destined to draw out the latencies, read the signatures, crack the code....These brilliant translations will serve to introduce a whole new sensibility to Anglo-American readers."—Anthony Burgess "Faithfulness, a loving adherence, a communion with and an entering into the spirit of the original are what we look for in a translation. We find these qualities abundantly in this rendering of Lucio Piccolo's poetry by Brian Swarm and Ruth Feldman. And we find yet more: a welcome clarification, for though Piccolo's poetry—one that tries to capture in a subtle web the atmosphere of a bygone world—is not obscure or oblique, yet, like all significant poetry, it is here and there open to a number of interpretations. Swann's and Feldman's translation, or interpretation, seems to me always felicitous and intelligent."—Arturo Vivante Originally published in 1973. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

En poco más de diez años de intenso trabajo literario, los que van desde que dejó atrás el alcoholismo hasta su temprana muerte, Raymond Carver forjó una obra de primerísima magnitud. Sus cuentos fueron celebrados internacionalmente y le valieron el calificativo de «Chéjov americano», pero, en paralelo a esa carrera como narrador, a lo largo de los años ochenta del pasado siglo también fue escribiendo varios poemarios. De hecho, él mismo dijo: «Empecé como poeta. Lo primero que publiqué fue un poema. De modo que supongo que me gustaría que en mi lápida pusiese “Poeta, cuentista y ocasional ensayista”, en ese orden.» Y es que los poemarios de Carver aquí reunidos –cinco libros, tres publicados en vida, uno póstumo y un quinto que reunía sus inéditos– permiten constatar que su poesía no fue ni mucho menos un ejercicio menor, un capricho, una producción subsidiaria o marginal. Sus versos forman parte sustancial de su corpus literario, y no solo ayudan a construir un retrato completo de quien los escribió, sino que son un complemento imprescindible para cualquier lector de sus cuentos. Los más de trescientos poemas de este volumen –que incorpora un emotivo prólogo de su viuda, la escritora Tess Gallagher– están arraigados a la vida, a lo cotidiano, y demuestran que Carver no fue solo un narrador superdotado, sino también un poeta profundo y emocionante, que sabía explorar los instantes de felicidad o desolación, las flaquezas y la dignidad de los seres humanos, las escurridizas epifanías que asoman en las vidas más anodinas. Sus versos atrapan la intimidad sin pompa ni excesos retóricos, y muestran una empática capacidad de comprensión hacia sus semejantes que lo conecta con su amado Chéjov.

Steven Gould Axelrod, Camille Roman, and Thomas Travisano continue the standard of excellence set in Volumes I and II of this extraordinary anthology. Volume III provides the most compelling and wide-ranging selection available of American poetry from 1950 to the present. Its contents are just as diverse and multifaceted as America itself and invite readers to explore the world of poetry in the larger historical context of American culture. Nearly three hundred poems allow readers to explore canonical works by such poets as Elizabeth Bishop, Robert Lowell, and Sylvia Plath, as well as song lyrics from such popular musicians as Bob Dylan and Queen Latifah. Because contemporary American culture transcends the borders of the continental United States, the anthology also includes numerous transnational poets, from Julia de Burgos to Derek Walcott. Whether they are the works of oblique avant-gardists like John Ashbery or direct, populist poets like Allen Ginsberg, all of the selections are accompanied by extensive introductions and footnotes, making the great poetry of the period fully accessible to readers for the first time.
