Birthday Letters by Ted HughesFrom $20.25
Formerly Poet Laureate to Queen Elizabeth II, the late Ted Hughes (1930-98) is recognized as one of the few contemporary poets whose work has mythic scope and power. And few episodes in postwar literature have the legendary stature of Hughes's romance with, and marriage to, the great American poet Sylvia Plath. The poems in "Birthday Letters" are addressed (with just two exceptions) to Plath, and were written over a period of more than twenty-five years, the first a few years after her suicide in 1963. Some are love letters, others haunted recollections and ruminations. In them, Hughes recalls his and Plath's time together, drawing on the powerful imagery of his work--animal, vegetable, mythological--as well as on Plath's famous verse. Countless books have discussed the subject of this intense relationship from a necessary distance, but this volume--at last--offers us Hughes's own account. Moreover, it is a truly remarkable collection of pems in its own right.
River Inside the River by Gregory OrrFrom $17.5
From the acclaimed American poet whose work the San Francisco Review called mystical, carnal, reflective, wry come three gorgeous poetic sequences. In the first, Eden and After, Gregory Orr retells the story of Adam and Eve. The second sequence, The City of Poetry, evokes and explores a visionary metropolis where every poem is a house, and every house a poem. The final sequence, River Inside the River, focuses on redemption through the mysterious power of language to resurrect the beloved and recover what is lost. River Inside the River combines Orr s characteristic spirituality and meditative lyricism with storytelling and myth-making. These are poems that will sustain, console, and give hope, from a poet at the height of his powers."
Divine Nothingness by Gerald SternFrom $25.5
Divine Nothingness is a meditative reflection on the poet s past and an elegy to love and the experience of the senses in the face of mortality. From the Jersey side of the Delaware River in Lambertville, Gerald Stern explores questions about who and why we are, locating nothingness in the divine and the divine in nothingness. From What Brings Me Here? Here I am again and what brings me here to the same wooden bench preaching to the city of Lambertville surrounded by mayapples? For who in the hell is going to lie down with whom in the hell, either inside or outside?"
King Solomon's Mines by H. Rider HaggardFrom $7.95
Three men trek to the remote African interior in search of a lost friend ? and reach, at the end of a perilous journey, an unknown land cut off from the world, where terrible dangers threaten anyone who ventures near the spectacular diamond mines of King Solomon... About the AuthorSir Henry Rider Haggard (1856-1925) was a prolific English writer, who published colorful novels set in unknown regions and lost kingdoms of Africa, or some other corner of the world: Iceland, Constantinople, Mexico, Ancient Egypt. Haggard's best-known work is the romantic adventure tale KING SOLOMON'S MINES (1885), which was inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson' s famous Treasure Island.
Civilization And Its Discontents : Popular Penguins by Sigmund FreudFrom $8.5
In his final years, Freud devoted most of his energies to a series of highly ambitious works on the broadest issues of religion and society. Here, he argues that civilized values ? and the impossible ideals of Christianity - inevitably distort our natural aggression and impose a terrible burden of guilt. Author Biography Sigmund Freud was born in 1856 in Moravia; between the ages of fourand eighty-two his home was in Vienna: in 1938 Hitler's invasion ofAustria forced him to seek asylum in London, where he died in thefollowing year.His career began with several years of brilliant work on the anatomyand physiology of the nervous system. He was almost thirty when, aftera period of study under Charcot in Paris, his interests first turned topsychology, and another ten years of clinical work in Vienna (at firstin collaboration with Breuer, an older colleague) saw the birth of hiscreation, psychoanalysis. This began simply as a method of treatingneurotic patients by investigating their minds, but it quickly grewinto an accumulation of knowledge about the workings of the mind ingeneral, whether sick or healthy. Freud was thus able to demonstratethe normal development of the sexual instinct in childhood and, largelyon the basis of an examination of dreams, arrived at his fundamentaldiscovery of the unconscious forces that influence our everydaythoughts and actions.Freud's life was uneventful, but his ideas have shaped not only manyspecialist disciplines, but the whole intellectual climate of the lasthalf-century.
The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee WilliamsFrom $15.8
Menagerie was Williams's first popular success and launched the brilliant, if somewhat controversial, career of our pre-eminent lyric playwright. Since its premiere in Chicago in 1944, with the legendary Laurette Taylor in the role of Amanda, the play has been the bravura piece for great actresses from Jessica Tandy to Joanne Woodward, and is studied and performed in classrooms and theatres around the world. The Glass Menagerie (in the reading text the author preferred) is now available only in its New Directions Paperbook edition. A new introduction by prominent Williams scholar Robert Bray, editor of The Tennessee Williams Annual Review, reappraises the play more than half a century after it won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award: "More than fifty years after telling his story of a family whose lives form a triangle of quiet desperation, Williams's mellifluous voice still resonates deeply and universally." This edition of The Glass Menagerie also includes Williams's essay on the impact of sudden fame on a struggling writer, "The Catastrophe of Success," as well as a short section of Williams's own "Production Notes." The cover features the classic line drawing by Alvin Lustig, originally done for the 1949 New Directions edition.
Pygmalion by George Bernard ShawFrom $8.5
Pygmalion both delighted and scandalised its first audiences in 1914. A brilliantly witty reworking of the classical tale of the sculptor Pygmalion, who falls in love with his perfect female statue, it is also a barbed attack on the British class system and a statement of Shaw's feminist views. In Shaw's hands, the phoneticist Henry Higgins is the Pygmalion figure who believes he can transform Eliza Doolittle, a cockney flower girl, into a duchess at ease in polite society. The one thing he overlooks is that his 'creation' has a mind of her own.This is the definitive text produced under the editorial supervision of Dan H. Laurence, with an illuminating introduction by Nicholas Grene, discussing the language and politics of the play. Also included in this volume is Shaw's preface, as well as his 'sequel' written for the first publication in 1916, to rebut public demand for a more conventionally romantic ending.About The AuthorGeorge Bernard Shaw was born in Dublin in 1856. Although essentially shy, he created the persona of G. B. S., the showman, satirist, controversialist, critic, pundit, wit, intellectual buffoon and dramatist. Commentators brought a new adjective into English: Shavian, a term used to embody all his brilliant qualities.After his arrival in London in 1876 he became an active Socialist and a brilliant platform speaker. He wrote on many social aspects of the day: on Common Sense about the War (1914), How to Settle the Irish Question (1917) and The Intelligent Woman?s Guide to Socialism and Capitalism (1928). He undertook his own education at the British Museum and consequently became keenly interested in cultural subjects. Thus his prolific output included music, art and theatre reviews, which were collected into several volumes such as Music in London 1890?1894 (3 vols, 1931); Pen Portraits and Reviews (1931); and Our Theatr
Phaedra and Other Plays by Lucius Annaeus SenecaFrom $7.95
'Time flits about on fickle wings, and fleeting Fortune offers no one guarantees' Living in Rome under Caligula and later a tutor to Nero, Seneca witnessed the extremes of human behaviour. His shocking and bloodthirsty plays not only reflect a brutal period of history but also show how guilt, sorrow, anger and desire lead individuals to violence. The hero of Hercules Insane saves his own family from slaughter, only to commit further atrocities when he goes mad. The horrifying death of Astyanax is recounted in Trojan Women, and Phaedra deals with forbidden love. In Oedipus a nervous man discovers himself, while Thyestes recounts the bitter family struggle for a crown. Of uncertain authorship, Octavia dramatizes Nero's divorce from his wife and her deportation. The only Latin tragedies to have survived complete, these plays are masterpieces of vibrant, muscular language and psychological insight. This vivid new translation renders the plays in prose and verse. The introduction examines Seneca's life, the influence of Stoic philosophy on his work, and his impact on early modern tragedy. Also included are prefaces to each play, a chronology, further reading and notes. Translated with an introduction and notes by R. SCOTT SMITH
Flaubert in Egypt by Gustave FlaubertFrom $7.95
At once a classic of travel literature and a penetrating portrait of a 'sensibility on tour,' Flaubert in Egypt wonderfully captures the young writer's impressions during his 1849 voyages. Using diaries, letters, travel notes, and the evidence of Flaubert's traveling companion, Maxime Du Camp, Francis Steegmuller reconstructs his journey through the bazaars and brothels of Cairo and down the Nile to the Red Sea.
