Willow, Wine, Mirror, Moon: Women's Poems from ...
21,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

This collection of 106 poems by 44 female Tang-era poets is the most comprehensive of its kind. Poets are organized based on their status in Tang dynasty society: women of the court, women of the household, courtesans and entertainers, and women of religion. While each poet's concerns vary with their social status, common thematic threads include heartbreak and the mysteries of the natural world. Thumbnail biographies of each poet and notes regarding individual poems complete this important collection. Jeanne Larsen has published poetry, three novels set in China, and a book of poetry translation, 'Brocade River Poems: Selected Works of the Tang Dynasty Courtesan Xue Tao.' She teaches in the creative writing program at Hollins University in Roanoke, Virginia.

Daughters Of Emptiness
17,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Beata Grant renders a great service by recovering and translating the enchanting verse -- by turns assertive, observant, devout -- of forty-eight nuns from sixteen centuries of imperial China. This selection of poems, along with brief biographical accounts that accompany them, affords readers a glimpse into the extraordinary diversity and sometimes startling richness of these women's lives. 'Daughters of Emptiness' includes original hand-drawn calligraphies of each poet's name, as well as the poems in their original Chinese, alongside the translations.

Lapse Americana
28,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

The twin ravens, Thought and Memory, of Norse myth are reborn as American crows to fly an interweaving pattern or remembering and forgetting through the pages of LAPSE AMERICANA. Born out of the poet's childhood during the Pax Americana and situated within the war and economic lapse of the new century, these poems explore memory and amnesia, faith and doubt, presence and absence. They are rooted in rural, working class experience as well as in the poetic traditions of America, Europe, and China. By turns formal and jazzy, confessional and coy, these poems speak of the universal by focusing on the particular, insisting with simultaneous emphasis upon the value of remembering and of embracing forgetfulness.

Major Lyricists of the Northern Sung
41,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The tz'u, or lyric, reached its full maturity in China during the eleventh century and the first quarter of the twelfth. Until now this important poetic genre has been little known to English readers, and James J. Y. Liu's book is the first to deal systematically and critically with it. He does so by examining the work of six representative poets of the period. The poems are analyzed in terms of their 'exploration of worlds,' by which the author means the poet's probing of the natural world and the human world in which he lives, as well as of his own mind. This leads into a discussion of the poet's 'exploration of language,' his incessant effort to embody the worlds he explores in complex verbal structures and to realize the potentialities of the Chinese language as a medium of poetic expression. Preceding the general discussion of each lyricist's poetry are examples of the work of each in four forms: first in the original Chinese text, then in a romanization, next in a word-for-word translation, and finally in an idiomatic translation. Each poem is accompanied by a metrical diagram, explanatory notes, and a critical commentary. Attention is focused on poetic qualities and features such as diction, imagery, syntax, and prosody. Originally published in 1974. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

The Mirror Trade
13,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

The title poem on this collection of poetry was written after a visit to Murano, home to the famous Venetian glassmaking industry. The alchemical processes of mirror making become a guiding metaphor for the poet's explorations. This theme of enticing reflections helps elucidate the subjects of the book, most notably in the series of poems imagining the life of her grandfather, who in his time in the British Royal Air Force lived in India, China, and Iraq. Most of the poems are inspired by the challenges of travel and the need to undermine one's own expectations. They challenge voices of authority and discover strange tales in strange lands.
