Poet in New York by Federico García Lorca( Book )
25 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,324 libraries worldwide
Written while García Lorca was a student at Columbia University in 1929-30, Poet in New York is one of those rare books that have changed the direction of poetry in both Spain and the Americas. Christopher Maurer has revised this vital work, using previously unavailable or untranslated material. The book includes a prose poem missing from previous editions, as well as extensive notes and letters, revised versions of all the poems, an interpretive lecture by Lorca himself. --Farrar, Straus and Giroux. This symphonic narrative takes Lorca beyond the gypsy-folk lyrics of his early work, and surreally depicts the spiritual emptiness of the urban landscape and the existential loneliness of the poet lost in the materialist city. --Kirkus Reviews. This is a superb translation. Simon and White have succeeded so well that I can't imagine anyone trying to improve on what they've done. --Mark Strand. It does what one wants a translation to do: make the original really come alive in the second language. --W.S. Merwin
Selected verse by Federico García Lorca( Book )
12 editions published between 1994 and 2004 in English and Spanish and held by 985 libraries worldwide
The work of Federico Garcia Lorca, Spain's greatest modern poet, has long been admired for its emotional intensity and metaphorical brilliance. Few poets take us more directly and memorably to what Lorca described as "the dark root of the scream", the terrain of the duende, where inspiration delivers a new poetic reality and "intelligence" discovers its limitations. For many years, until the recent publication of FSG's Collected Poems, English readers' view of Lorca has been determined by a few well-known books - The Divan at Tamarit, Poet in New York, The Gypsy Ballads - and by a lamentably small number of poems. Now this Selected Verse, the most complete paperback anthology available in English, draws on FSG's two-volume Poetical Works, providing authoritative versions by outstanding poets and translators: Francisco Aragon, Catherine Brown, Cola Franzen, Will Kirkland, William Bryant Logan, Jerome Rothenberg, Greg Simon, Alan S. Trueblood, John K. Walsh, and Steven F. White. In this bilingual edition, Lorca's poetic range comes clearly into view, from the playful Suites and stylized evocations of Andalusia to the utter gravity and mystery of the final elegies, confirming his stature as one of our century's finest poets

The complete perfectionist : a poetics of work by Juan Ramón Jiménez( Book )
6 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and held by 415 libraries worldwide
Few have courted perfection like Nobel Prize winner Juan Ramon Jimenez, who felt both fear and exhilaration before his own high standards and negotiated shrewdly with his own personal best. Drawing upon Juan Ramon's aphorisms, Christopher Maurer meditates upon his struggle and gives us a guide to the pursuit of life's ultimate pleasure: the dream of doing perfect work. Juan Ramon's relentless quest for the perfect poem leads here to an inspiring new vision of how to reach perfection in any endeavor. Juan Ramon analyzes the most radical elements of perfection: how to create and revise, reconcile noise and silence, listen to dream and instinct, learn from nature, seize the moment, and calm the fear of death
Sebastian's arrows : letters and mementos of Salvador Dalí and Federico García Lorca by Salvador Dalí( Book )
7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 388 libraries worldwide
"Sebastian's Arrows is an intelligent selection and translation of letters, texts (some previously unpublished), and images, including an introduction and notes, by Christopher Maurer, giving the general reader, student, and scholar insight into the lives of two exceptional artists." "Written between 1925 and 1936, the letters tell of a friendship that began in the Residencia de Estudiantes, Madrid, where the two waged war against cultural "putrefaction" and the sacred cows of Spanish art. Distinct portraits emerge. The letters - some never before published in English - reveal the intimacies of friendship and the skirmishes and "crossed swords" of poetry and art."--BOOK JACKET

A pocket mirror for heroes by Baltasar Gracián y Morales( Book )
4 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 283 libraries worldwide
A Pocket Mirror for Heroes is a mirror because it reflects "the person you are or the one you ought to be." It is a pocket mirror because its author took the time to be brief. And it is a mirror for heroes because it provides a vivid image of ethical and moral perfection to which all can aspire. The Art of Worldly Wisdom by Baltasar Gracian was all but forgotten for three hundred years, until its republication in 1992 turned this lost classic into a New York Times bestseller. Now Gracian, the Spanish Jesuit considered Machiavelli's better in strategy and insight, sets a new standard on the art of living and the practice of achieving. That new standard is the art of heroism--how to be "the consummate person, ripe and perfect: accurate in judgment, mature in taste, attentive in listening, wise in sayings, shrewd in deeds, the center of all perfection." Gracian teaches the reader to be "a giant"--"the greatest person possible, a miracle of perfection, a king." Wit, wisdom, courage, elegance, grace, humility, spontaneity--these are the qualities needed to reach heroism in any occupation. But it is not enough to be wise or graceful: one must learn as well how to manage that talent, how to distinguish a quality fiom its shadow. A Pocket Mirror for Heroes provides "a politics for governing oneself, a compass for sailing toward excellence, an art for reaching distinction with just a few rules of discretion," and it will be wise and witty company for anyone who recognizes--and relishes--the challenges of daily life
