Under the Apple Tree/Pod jablonia

By: Barkan, Stanley H.--Adam Szyper, Translator

Price: $10.00

Publisher: Krakow, Poland, Oficyna Konfraterni Poetow: 1998

Edition: First

Seller ID: CCC01P.1


Stanley Barkan has a way with him that tends to get the best out of people and out of words. Now, however, I wonder whether or not he has gone too far. With the Polish version of his Under the Apple Tree, I feel that his eloquence and sensibility have been carried over, to see that it still tastes like a macintosh or like Old Scratch's Granny Smith. But ever if, it will be pleasurable. Stanley has that effect. --Gregory Rabassa, World-renowned translator of Spanish ... View more info

No!Love

By: Dayen, Aleksey—author & translator

Price: $25.00

Publisher: Merrick, New York, USA, Cross-Culutral Communications: 2008

Edition: First

Seller ID: CCC958.1


"Aleksey Dayen creates poetry without pretense. Somehow, he has managed to plunge into a direct feed. What you hear is what it is: a little night music, a little dodging around Manhattan street corners, but no evasions, no apologies. Indoors, these are open-faced (as much as in your face) exposures. There's no second-guessing here . . . in a world that is (as most anybody might know) mostly guesswork." —John Dotson View more info

Edition: First

Seller ID: CZ001


Otakar Dvorak's book about his father can be recommended especially to those readers who love Dvorak's music, but who do not propse to study this music professionally.
