Ghani Tahi Captured Gazelle, The Ghani Tahi Captured Gazelle, The Новинка

Ghani Tahi Captured Gazelle, The

Every moment it seeks to slip from the mind's nook Fresh poetic meaning is a gazelle to be captured The Captured Gazelle is an elegant and lucent translation of the poems of the seventeenth-century Persian poet Mulla Tahir Ghani, better known as Ghani Kashmiri. Eulogized by poets such as Mir and Iqbal, Ghani is an outstanding representative of sabk-e-Hindi or the 'Indian style' in Persian poetry, which became a hallmark of the Mughal-Safavid literary culture. The introduction situates Ghani against his unique background in which Iranian and Indian poetic cultures came together to create a glorious literary age in Kashmir, while the translations capture Ghani in his wide spectrum of moods-satirical, playful, self-pitying, pessimistic, mystically resigned-bringing alive his wit and ingenuity in a modern idiom without losing hold on the tone.

Petkovska Marija Sherlock Holmes. The Victorian Hero

Sherlock Holmes remains one of the most celebrated characters ever created. As probably the most famous detective, his importance as a cultural icon is indisputable. This book in particular demonstrates his influence in regard to Victorian masculinity. The first part gives insight into the social circumstances which made it possible for a detective figure to emerge in literature, such as crime and social disorder, and also information on Holmes's predecessors and the methods which paved the way for the upcoming symbol of detection. The second part contains the focal point, the in-depth presentation of the Victorian ideals concerning masculinity and how this concept is in close relation with the idea of reestablishing order through heroic behavior. Here the Victorian ideals of 'proper' masculinity, heroism and order restoration are dealt with, and Holmes's character is represented in details as a representative of (moral) law and justice and as a protector of his society. The emphasis is on five clusters crucial for interpreting Holmes as a real man and a hero, which at the same time are the main aspects of the Victorian philosophy of masculinity and heroism.

Rainer Maria Rilke Letters to a Young Poet

Facsimile of 1943 Edition. Born in 1875, the great German lyric poet Rainer Maria Rilke published his first collection of poems in 1898 and went on to become renowned for his delicate depiction of the workings of the human heart. Drawn by some sympathetic note in his poems, young people often wrote to Rilke with their problems and hopes. From 1903 to 1908 Rilke wrote a series of remarkable responses to a young, would-be poet on poetry and on surviving as a sensitive observer in a harsh world. Those letters, ten in all, remain a fresh source of inspiration and insight to the poetic sensibility to this day.

Jalaluddin Rumi, Rasoul Shams Rumi. The Art of Loving

Cambridge University professor Reynold Nicholson once remarked that the 13th-century Persian poet Rumi is the "greatest mystical poet of any age." In Rumi's vision, love is the very matrix of existence; love is what moves life. His poetry expresses the deepest and the most inclusive layers of love, and thus connects us to an immense source of joy, compassion, creativity, and mystery. This book is a new anthology and an original translation of Rumi's poetry. It is divided into three parts. Part I contains two essays, one on Rumi's life ("A Messenger from the Sun") and the other on his poetic vision and thought ("The Path of Love in the Ocean of Life"), which together help the reader better situate his poetry. Part II presents 144+1 quatrains (Rubaiyat) of Rumi categorized into 12 thematic chapters: On the Pain and Joy of Longing; The Search; Who Am I?; The Beloved's Face; Die to Yourself; The Art of Living; Night Secrets; Water of Life; Fire of Love; Unity and Union; Peaceful Mind; and Rumi on His Life, Poetry and Death. These poems have been selected and translated from the authentic Persian editions of Rumi's Divan-e Shams. For readers interested in the cadence and rhythm of the poems in the original language the Persian reading (in English script) is also given under each translated poem. Part III is a selection of 12 wisdom stories from Rumi's own life (taken from a 14th-century biographical work on Rumi). A glossary of symbo...

Maria Noëlle Ng Three Exotic Views of Southeast Asia. The Travel Narratives of Isabella Bird, Max Dauthendey, and Ai Wu, 1850-1930

This critical study of three intrepid travelers to Southeast Asia—Bird (1831–1904), Dauthendey (1867–1918), Wu (1904–1992)—combines detailed analysis of travel literature with carefully researched historical background and argues that any travel narrative is inevitably a product of the traveler’s own cultural and social background. Thus travel narrative is never an objective account—the reader must take into consideration the traveler’s own history. By juxtaposing the views of a Chinese with those of two Western travelers, this book shows that prejudice and racism can exist in both the West and the East.In choosing a Victorian traveler, a German poet, and a Chinese writer, Ng’s study encompasses a geographical area that includes Britain, Germany, China, as well as Southeast Asia and an historical span from the Victorian era to the twentieth century. Three Exotic Views of Southeast Asia is theoretically informed by postcolonial and poststructural criticism. But it also details particular historical contexts, thus evoking the glamour and magic of traveling in a bygone era.Apart from an examination of a broad range of literature by, among many others, Henry Mayhew, Somerset Maugham, Thomas Mann, and Ba Jin, this groundbreaking study also discusses architecture, fine arts, philanthropic culture, and the rise of mass tourism. Original translations from the German and the Chinese are by the author.

Mawlana Jalaluddin Rumi, a 13th-centry Persian Sufi poet, is one of the most widely-read poets today. But who was Rumi really? How do we know what we know about him? How did he become a passionate poet of love? What was the nature of the relationship between Rumi and his beloved friend Shams? What are the key notions in the thousands of Rumi poems? What are Rumi's essential teachings for transformation and spiritual growth? How can we use his poetry as meditation? How is Rumi related to our modern world and life? How do Rumi's views compare with the teachings of the Buddha? What is the position of Jesus Christ in Rumi's poetry and faith? Why is Rumi's poetry so popular seven centuries after his life? These are among the major questions explored in this book. This comprehensive package of information and reflections on Rumi's life, poetry, and vision draws on original works in Persian including Rumi's own poetry and historical texts.

Akhmatova Anna Poems

From her appearance in a small magazine in 1906 to her death in 1965, Anna Akhmatova was a dominant presence in Russian literary life. But this friend of Pasternak and Mandelstam was a poet in a country where poetry was literally a matter of life and death, as she found when Mandelstam and her own husband, Gumilyev, were executed, and her son imprisoned for many years in the Gulag. Akhmatova's first collection, Evening, appeared in 1912. Rosary (1914) made her a household name. After the Revolution she went in and out of favour with the authorities, who sometimes allowed her to publish, sometimes banned her work. She is now most celebrated in the West for Poem Without A Hero and Requiem, a sequencemourning the victims of Stalin's Terror which was only published (and then outside Russia) in 1963.

Geoffrey Jacques Just for a Thrill. Poems

Geoffrey Jacques is a subtle, sophisticated poet who has read widely and has taken his cue from some of the most important vanguard poets of the past century and a half—Whitman, Breton, Césaire, Stein, Olson, Baraka, and others. He has digested and assimilated the lessons to be learned from their work while finding a way that is very much his own. The result is a distinctive contemporary voice whose angular mode of address and unerring touch edify as much as they impress.This book presents both in full flower. Techniques of detour and indirection productively encounter an aesthetic of sampling, quotation, and juxtaposition, a language-foregrounding tack that draws a range of domains and discourses into its mix. Song titles, clichés, catch phrases, bureaucratic boilerplate, advertising jargon, office chat, song lyrics, legalese, and other components of the linguistic atmosphere we live in find their way into the work, suggesting an overmediated, gone-before-it-gets-here present.Just for a Thrill is a substantial gathering of Jacques’ work of recent years—a welcome breakthrough book by a poet whose work has appeared mainly in little magazines and limited chapbook editions over the past dozen or so years, a poet whose work deserves greater attention. We’re fortunate to have so galvanic a collection of Jacques’ poetry in an edition that promises to reach a wider audience.—From the foreword by Nathaniel Mackey
