An Anthology of Vietnamese Poems: From the Eleventh through the Twentieth Centuries

In 1979 Yale University Press published "The Heritage of Vietnamese Poetry". Although that collection of premodern poems has gone out of print, there is renewed demand for such an anthology on the part of instructors of courses on Vietnamese history, the Vietnam War, Southeast Asian and East Asian literatures, Asian-American studies, and women's studies. Not only to meet the needs of those academic constituencies but also to provide for Vietnamese throughout the world and their international friends an omnibus of Vietnamese verse in English translation, I have prepared "An Anthology of Vietnamese Poems". This book consists of 322 works by about a hundred fifty poets, celebrated, obscure, or anonymous. It includes 125 poems (many revised) from the 1979 volume, as well as two long narratives written before the twentieth century.

This anthology of Modern Russian Verse is designed for the foreign reader wanting to improve his knowledge of Russian literature. As it is also intended for use as an aid by the student of Russian, poets included in this selection are not always represented by their main works. Many poems which a Russian would consider a must for any anthology claiming to introduce the reader to the best or most characteristic work of a given poet are not included here, for the simple reason that the complexity of their language is likely to render them incomprehensible to a non-Russian.

Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions Новинка

Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions

With wry humor and penetrating satire, Flatland takes us on a mind-expanding journey into a different world to give us a new vision of our own. A. Square, the slightly befuddled narrator, is born into a place limited to two dimensions - irrevocably flat - and peopled by a hierarchy of geometrical forms. In a Gulliver-like tour of his bizarre homeland, A. Square spins a fascinating tale of domestic drama and political turmoil, from sex among consenting triangles to the intentional subjugation of Flatland’s females. He tells of visits to Lineland, the world of one dimension, and Pointland, the world of no dimension. But when A. Square dares to speak openly of a third, or even a fourth, dimension, his tragic fate climaxes a brilliant parody of Victorian society. An underground favorite since its publication in England in1884, Flatland is as prophetic a science fiction classic as the works of H. G. Wells, introducing aspects of relativity and hyperspace years before Einstein’s famous theories. And it does so with wonderful, enduring enchantment.

Gulag Voices Gulag Voices Новинка

Gulag Voices

Anne Applebaum wields her considerable knowledge of this dark chapter in history and presents a collection of the writings of survivors of the Gulag, the Soviet concentration camps. Although the opening of the Soviet archives to scholars has made it possible to write the history of this notorious concentration camp system, documents tell only one side of the story. "Gulag: An Anthology" now fills in the other half. The backgrounds of the writers reflect the extraordinary diversity of the Gulag itself. Here are the personal stories of figures such as renowned literary scholar Dmitri Likhachev; Anatoly Marchenko, the son of illiterate labourers; and, American citizen Alexander Dolgun. These remembrances – many of them appearing in English for the first time, each chosen for both literary and historical value – collectively spotlight the strange moral universe of the camps, as well as the relationships that prisoners had with one another, with their guards, and with professional criminals who lived beside them. A vital addition to the literature of this era, annotated for a generation that no longer remembers the Soviet Union, "Gulag: An Anthology" will inform, interest, and inspire, offering a source for reflection on human nature itself.
MY PARIS DREAM MY PARIS DREAM Новинка

MY PARIS DREAM

As a young woman Kate Betts nursed a dream of striking out on her own and discovering who she was meant to be in Paris. Upon graduation from Princeton and not without trepidation, she took off, renting a room in the apartment of a young "BCBG" family and throwing herself into Parisian culture, determined to master French slang, style, and savoir-faire, and find a job that would give her a reason to stay. After a series of dues-paying jobs, she began a magnificent apprenticeship at Women's Wear Daily and was initiated into the high fashion world at a moment that saw the last glory of the old guard and the explosion of a new generation of talent. From a woozy yet enchanting Yves Saint Laurent to the mischievous and commanding Karl Lagerfeld, to the riotous, brilliant young guns--Martin Margiela, Helmut Lang, and John Galliano--who were rewriting the rules of fashion, Betts gives us a view of what it looked like to a young American girl, finding herself, falling in love, and exploring this dazzling world all at once. Rife with insider information about restaurants, shopping, travel, and food, Betts's memoir brings the enchantment of France to life--from the nightclubs of Paris where she learned to dance Le Rock, to the lavender fields of Provence and the forests of le Bretagne--in an unforgettable memoir of coming-of-age.

For over fifty years, philosophers working within the broader remit of analytic philosophy have developed and refined a substantial body of work in aesthetics and the philosophy of art, curating a core foundation of scholarship which offers rigor and clarity on matters of profound and perennial interest relating to art and all forms of aesthetic appreciation. Now in its second edition and thoroughly revised, Aesthetics and the Philosophy of Art—The Analytic Tradition: An Anthology captures this legacy in a comprehensive introduction to the core philosophical questions and conversations in aesthetics. Through 57 key essays selected by leading scholars Peter Lamarque and Stein Haugom Olsen, this anthology collects modern classics as well as new contributions on essential topics such as the identification and ontology of art, interpretation, values of art, art and knowledge, and fiction and the imagination. New to this edition are selections which treat aesthetic experience more widely, including essays on the aesthetics of nature and aesthetics in everyday life. Other carefully-chosen pieces analyze the practice and experience of specific art forms in greater detail, including painting, photography, film, literature, music, and popular art such as comics. This bestselling collection is an essential resource for students and scholars of aesthetics, designed to foster a foundational understanding of both long-standing and contemporary topics in the field.
