Then come back : the lost Neruda poems by Pablo Neruda( Book )
2 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 692 libraries worldwide
"Pablo Neruda's lost poems-recently discovered in his archive to the delight of readers and scholars-comprise this remarkable and essential volume. Originally composed on napkins, playbills, receipts, and notebooks, Neruda's lost poems are full of eros and heartache, complex wordplay and deep wonder. Presented with the Spanish text, full-color reproductions of handwritten poems, and dynamic English translations, Then Come Back: The Lost Neruda simultaneously completes and advances the oeuvre of the world's most beloved poet. Crossing the sky I near the red ray of your hair. Of earth and wheat I am and as I close-in your fire kindles itself inside me and the rocks and flour ignite. That's why my heart expands and rises into bread for your mouth to devour, and my blood is wine poured for you. You and I are the land with its fruit. Bread, fire, blood and wine make up the earthly love that sears us. Pablo Neruda (1904-1973) is one of the world's most beloved and best-selling poets. He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1971. Translator Forrest Gander teaches at Brown University and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize"--

As a friend by Forrest Gander( Book )
12 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 365 libraries worldwide
An adoring friendship turns deadly in poet and translator Gander's visceral if too brief first novel. Les is the magnetic, godlike protagonist of this reflective four-part narrative: introduced at the time of his difficult birth to a teenage mother, he is put up for adoption. Years later, he is observed by Clay, a colleague on his land-surveying team in a small town in Arkansas, who finds his friend's mannerisms and dissembling so compelling that he apes Les and eventually betrays him. Les, a part-time poet and practical joker, is beloved for his eccentricities, especially by his second wife, Cora, and mistress, Sarah, whose poetic remembrances of Les after his suicide make up the novel's third section and reveal hopelessly guilt-ridden Sarah to be angry, grieving for her tender, quirky lover

"Since the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo in 1848, the United States and Mexico have been inextricably linked. The blending of the American and Mexican cultures has enriched both nations. Through a partnership to promote wider access to literary voices of Mexican artists in the U.S. and American writers in Mexico, the National Endowment for the Arts, the United States Embassy in Mexico, and the National Autonomous University of Mexico have joined together to support a program of anthology publications and public outreach activities. The two-volume set-Lineas conectadas: nueva poesia de los Estados Unidos and Connecting Lines: New Poetry from Mexico-is the first installment in the series. With definitive translations by leading writers and scholars, these dual volumes offer a glimpse into the beauty of the Mexican and the American experience through the microscopic lens of poetry. Whether read for personal pleasure or classroom study, Lineas conectadas and Connecting Lines are a must-read for anyone curious of our ever-increasing multicultural identity."--Publisher's website
The night by Jaime Sáenz( Book )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 261 libraries worldwide
"In this poem, Jaime Saenz explores the singular themes that possessed him: alcoholism, death, nightmares, identity, otherness, and his love for La Paz. The poem's four movements culminate in some of the most profoundly mystical, beautiful, and disturbing passages of modern Latin American poetry. They are presented here in this faithful and inspired English translation of the Spanish original." "Complete with an introduction by the translators that paints a picture of the poet's life, and an afterword by Luis H. Antezana, a Bolivian literary critic and close friend of Saenz, this bilingual edition is the essential introduction to one of the most visionary and enigmatic poets of the Hispanic world."--Jacket

Eye against eye by Forrest Gander( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 238 libraries worldwide
"The three long poems in Eye Against Eye convey the wrought particulars of intimate human relations, perceptions of the landscape, and the historical moment, tense with political exigencies. Mayan ruins invoke the collapsing Twin Towers, love between parents and child blisters with tension, and a bicycle thief shatters the narcotic illusion of a private accord. Also contained is "Late Summer Entry," a series of poetic commentaries on Sally Mann's landscape photographs. Eye Against Eye, Forrest Gander's third book with New Directions, cries out an ethical concern for the ways we see each other and the world, the potential to share a vision that acknowledges our commonality

Coral Bracho's poems explore the sensual realm where logic is disbanded, wonder evoked. Containing poems from her many groundbreaking collections in Spanish, Firefly under the Tongue is the first book in English by this most important and influential Mexican poet."--Jacket
Fungus skull eye wing : selected poems of Alfonso D'Aquino by Alfonso D' Aquino( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 164 libraries worldwide
"Fungus skull eye wing is a book of shifting subjectivity and liquid perspective, of surrealist tradition and Butoh-like gestures. The text flirts with the margins of the 'rational, ' perception, and the subjective mind. The speaker morphs into what he observes; speech comes alive while a plant becomes speech. Impeccably translated from Spanish by award-winning poet Forrest Gander in a bilingual edition. Alfonso D'Aquino is an editor, poetry instructor, snake handler, and author of six books. He was born in Mexico City in 1959 and currently lives in Cuernavaca, Mexico. His poetry is included in the landmark anthology Reversible Monuments: Contemporary Mexican Poetry.

Watchword by Pura López Colomé( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 135 libraries worldwide
"In her most recent book, Watchword--the winner of the Villaurrutia, Mexico's most esteemed literary prize--acclaimed poet Pura López Colomé writes of life at its brink with fierce honesty and an unblinking eye. This work shares the darkness, intensity, and skeptical hope of Thomas Hardy's great poems. Like them, López Colomé's poems have flashes of secular mysticism, sparked from language itself, which generate unforgettable passages and give voice to a world familiar and odd, wounded and buoyant. In the energy and intensity of her work and in her exhilarating words, we discover both a line of conduct and the source for a richer life. This bilingual edition features the poems en face in Spanish and English."--Publisher's website
Redstart : an ecological poetics by Forrest Gander( Book )
10 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 130 libraries worldwide
The damage humans have perpetrated on our environment has certainly affected a poet's means and material. But can poetry be ecological? Can it display or be invested with values that acknowledge the economy of interrelationship between the human and the nonhuman realms? Aside from issues of theme and reference, how might syntax, line break, or the shape of the poem on the page express an ecological ethics? To answer these questions, poets Forrest Gander and John Kinsella offer an experiment, a collaborative volume of prose and poetry that investigates-both thema
