Our Numbered Days - Neil Hilborn Cover Art

Our Numbered Days

Our Numbered Days by Neil Hilborn

When you're dumb enough for long enough, you're gonna meet someone too smart to love you, and they're gonna love you anyway, and it's gonna go so poorly, Neil Hilborn writes in his debut full-length collection, OUR NUMBERED DAYS.

Ultimately, Hilborn is a poet of the people: his work is accessible, honest, and entertaininga revitalizing entry in contemporary poetry.

The Selected Poems of Donald Hall - Donald Hall Cover Art

The Selected Poems of Donald Hall

The Selected Poems of Donald Hall by Donald Hall

Former poet laureate Donald Hall selects the essential work from a moving and brilliant life in poetry. The ability to write poems has “abandoned” Donald Hall, now in his eighties, one of the most significant — and beloved — poets of his generation. Instead of creating new poems, he has looked back over his astonishingly rich body of work and hand-picked poems for this final, concise volume that will delight, and endure.    The Selected Poems of Donald Hall is the definitive collection, showcasing poems rich with humor and eros and “a kind of simplicity that succeeds in engaging the reader in the first few lines” (Billy Collins).   “However wrenching [Hall’s poems] may be from line to line, they tell a story that is essentially reassuring: art and love are compatible, genius is companionable, and people stand by one another in the end” ( New York Times Book Review ).

The Tell-Tale Heart - Edgar Allan Poe Cover Art

The Tell-Tale Heart

The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe

"The Tell-Tale Heart" is a short story by Edgar Allan Poe first published in 1843. It follows an unnamed narrator who insists on his sanity after murdering an old man with a "vulture eye". The murder is carefully calculated, and the murderer hides the body by cutting it into pieces and hiding it under the floorboards. Ultimately the narrator's guilt manifests itself in the hallucination that the man's heart is still beating under the floorboards. It is unclear what relationship, if any, the old man and his murderer share. It has been suggested that the old man is a father figure or, perhaps, that his vulture eye represents some sort of veiled secret. The ambiguity and lack of details about the two main characters stand in stark contrast to the specific plot details leading up to the murder. The story was first published in James Russell Lowell's The Pioneer in January 1843. "The Tell-Tale Heart" is widely considered a classic of the Gothic fiction genre and one of Poe's most famous short stories.

Selected Poems of Langston Hughes - Langston Hughes Cover Art

Selected Poems of Langston Hughes

Selected Poems of Langston Hughes by Langston Hughes

With the publication of his first book of poems, The Weary Blues , in 1926, Langston Hughes electrified readers and launched a renaissance in black writing in America.  The poems Hughes wrote celebrated the experience of invisible men and women: of slaves who "rushed the boots of Washington"; of musicians on Lenox Avenue; of the poor and the lovesick; of losers in "the raffle of night."  They conveyed that experience in a voice that blended the spoken with the sung, that turned poetic lines into the phrases of jazz and blues, and that ripped through the curtain separating high from popular culture.  They spanned the range from the lyric to the polemic, ringing out "wonder and pain and terror-- and the marrow of the bone of life." The poems in this collection were chosen by Hughes himself shortly before his death in 1967 and represent work from his entire career, including "The Negro Speaks of Rivers," "The Weary Blues," "Still Here," "Song for a Dark Girl," "Montage of a Dream Deferred," and "Refugee in America."  It gives us a poet of extraordinary range, directness, and stylistic virtuosity. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Howl, and Other Poems

Howl, and Other Poems by Allen Ginsberg

"Howl" is a poem written by Allen Ginsberg in 1955, published as part of his 1956 collection of poetry titled "Howl and Other Poems." Ginsberg began work on "Howl" as early as 1954. "Howl" is considered to be one of the great works of American literature. It came to be associated with the group of writers known as the Beat Generation, which included Jack Kerouac and William S. Burroughs. There is no foundation to the myth that "Howl" was written as a performance piece and later published by poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti of City Lights Books. This myth was perpetuated by Ferlinghetti as part of the defense's case during the poem's obscenity trial, as detailed below. Upon the poem's release, Ferlinghetti and the bookstore's manager, Shigeyoshi Murao, were charged with disseminating obscene literature, and both were arrested. On October 3, 1957, Judge Clayton W. Horn ruled that the poem was not obscene. Poems include: Howl -- Footnote To Howl -- A Supermarket in California -- Transcription of Organ Music -- Sunflower Sutra -- America -- In the Baggage Room at Greyhound ; Earlier Poems: An Asphodel -- Song -- Wild Orphan -- In Back of the Real.

Carefully edited by her longtime, award-winning translator, Clare Cavanagh, the poems in Map trace Szymborska’s work until her death in 2012. Of the approximately two hundred and fifty poems included here, nearly forty are newly translated; thirteen represent the entirety of the poet’s last Polish collection, Enough , never before published in English.

Night Sky with Exit Wounds - Ocean Vuong Cover Art

Night Sky with Exit Wounds

Night Sky with Exit Wounds by Ocean Vuong

Winner of the 2016 Whiting Award One of Publishers Weekly 's "Most Anticipated Books of Spring 2016" One of Lit Hub's "10 must-read poetry collections for April" Reading Vuong is like watching a fish move: he manages the varied currents of English with muscled intuition. His poems are by turns graceful and wonderstruck. His lines are both long and short, his pose narrative and lyric, his diction formal and insouciant. From the outside, Vuong has fashioned a poetry of inclusion.” The New Yorker "Night Sky with Exit Wounds establishes Vuong as a fierce new talent to be reckoned with...This book is a masterpiece that captures, with elegance, the raw sorrows and joys of human existence." Buzzfeed 's "Most Exciting New Books of 2016" "This original, sprightly wordsmith of tumbling pulsing phrases pushes poetry to a new level...A stunning introduction to a young poet who writes with both assurance and vulnerability. Visceral, tender and lyrical, fleet and agile, these poems unflinchingly face the legacies of violence and cultural displacement but they also assume a position of wonder before the world.” 2016 Whiting Award citation " Night Sky with Exit Wounds is the kind of book that soon becomes worn with love. You will want to crease every page to come back to it, to underline every other line because each word resonates with power." LitHub "Vuong’s powerful voice explores passion, violence, history, identity all with a tremendous humanity." Slate In his impressive debut collection, Vuong, a 2014 Ruth Lilly fellow, writes beauty into and culls from individual, familial, and historical traumas. Vuong exists as both observer and observed throughout the book as he explores deeply personal themes such as poverty, depression, queer sexuality, domestic abuse, and the various forms of violence inflicted on his family during the Vietnam War. Poems float and strike in equal measure as the poet strives to transform pain into clarity. Managing this balance becomes the crux of the collection, as when he writes, ‘Your father is only your father/ until one of you forgets. Like how the spine/ won’t remember its wings/ no matter how many times our knees/ kiss the pavement.’” Publishers Weekly "What a treasure [Ocean Vuong] is to us. What a perfume he's crushed and rendered of his heart and soul. What a gift this book is." Li-Young Lee Torso of Air Suppose you do change your life. & the body is more than a portion of night sealed with bruises. Suppose you woke & found your shadow replaced by a black wolf. The boy, beautiful & gone. So you take the knife to the wall instead. You carve & carve until a coin of light appears & you get to look in, at last, on happiness. The eye staring back from the other side waiting. Born in Saigon, Vietnam, Ocean Vuong attended Brooklyn College. He is the author of two chapbooks as well as a full-length collection, Night Sky with Exit Wounds . A 2014 Ruth Lilly Fellow and winner of the 2016 Whiting Award, Ocean Vuong lives in New York City, New York.

Beowulf (Bilingual Edition) - Seamus Heaney Cover Art

Beowulf (Bilingual Edition)

Beowulf (Bilingual Edition) by Seamus Heaney

New York Times bestseller and winner of the Whitbread Award. Composed toward the end of the first millennium, Beowulf is the elegiac narrative of the adventures of Beowulf, a Scandinavian hero who saves the Danes from the seemingly invincible monster Grendel and, later, from Grendel's mother. He then returns to his own country and dies in old age in a vivid fight against a dragon. The poem is about encountering the monstrous, defeating it, and then having to live on in the exhausted aftermath. In the contours of this story, at once remote and uncannily familiar at the beginning of the twenty-first century, Nobel laureate Seamus Heaney finds a resonance that summons power to the poetry from deep beneath its surface. Drawn to what he has called the "four-squareness of the utterance" in ?Beowulf? and its immense emotional credibility, Heaney gives these epic qualities new and convincing reality for the contemporary reader.

La Divina Comedia (Spanish Edition)

La Divina Comedia (Spanish Edition) Illustrated by Dante Alighieri

La Divina Comedia (en italiano: Divina Commedia) es un poema épico escrito por Dante Alighieri. Se desconoce la fecha exacta en que fue escrito aunque las opiniones más reconocidas aseguran que el Infierno pudo ser compuesto entre 1304 y 1307 o 1308, el Purgatorio de 1307 o 1308 a 1313 o 1314 y por último, el Paraíso de 1313 o 1314 a 1321, fecha del fallecimiento del poeta. Se considera por tanto que la redacción de la primera parte habría sido alternada con la redacción del Convivium y De Vulgari Eloquentia, mientras que De Monarchia pertenecería a la época de la segunda o tercera etapa, a la última de las cuales hay que atribuir sin duda la de dos obras de menor empeño: la Cuestión del agua y la tierra y las dos églogas escritas en respuesta a sendos poemas de Giovanni del Virgilio. - Extraído de Wikipedia, la enciclopedia libre

Born to Love, Cursed to Feel - Samantha King Cover Art

Born to Love, Cursed to Feel

Born to Love, Cursed to Feel by Samantha King

Born to Love, Cursed to Feel is about love—the good, the bad, and the confusing. It touches on morals and how when emotions are involved it’s not as black and white. The poetry is frequently written in a narrative manner that evocatively pulls you in and makes you feel. This book is about falling in love, bad decisions, and ultimately growth. The essence of it all is to show that no matter how far one falls all the mistakes don’t have to be what defines them.

Leaves of Grass - Walt Whitman Cover Art

Leaves of Grass

Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman

"I sing the body electric." Poetry, according to Aristotle, is the rendering not of actual events but of such things as might or could happen in accordance with probability or necessity. When this is turned into an act of great beauty, the cleansing and quieting of the mind and soul can ensue. “Come, said my soul, Such verses for my Body let us write, (for we are one,) That should I after return, Or, long, long hence, in other spheres, There to some group of mates the chants resuming, (Tallying Earth’s soil, trees, winds, tumultuous waves,) Ever with pleas’d smile I may keep on, Ever and ever yet the verses owning–as, first, I here and now Signing for Soul and Body, set to them my name, Walt Whitman" The work of a lifetime and Walt Whitman’s masterpiece, Leaves of Grass was originally a small book that Whitman intended to be so small as to be carried in a pocket. An ode to the human body and the mind thus materialized, the book combines the rhythms of the earth and the sea with the charge of a deep, philosophical gaze upon the immediacy of the human body and mind in the world of the elements. “Being one with nature,” Withman’s aim, is the idea behind the poems in the book, some of the most beautiful that have ever been written in the English language. Here’s what he asks in I Sing the Body Electric: "And if the body does not do fully as much as the soul? And if the body were not the soul, what is the soul?"  This is a book that will question you, as it questions itself. It is a book that will make you ponder and will make you see. Leaf by leaf, it will open up to you in all its sensuality and uniqueness which was perceived, at the time of its publication, as oddity and extravagance. Those of you who read poetry and especially those of you who don’t, know that this is one of those rarest books which can make you happy.
