New on Shelves: Anthologies, Translations & Poems

As the French say « parutions » :
so here are some recent—& older—appearances to check out.

JUST OUT : & recently reviewed, is New European Poets, edited & compiled By Kevin Prufer & Wayne Miller, with the help of a series of guest editors.

I have some translations in this issue, thanks to Marilyn Hacker—the editor of the French & other sections—inviting me to contribute, of two poems by Christophe Lamiot Enos. I am thrilled to help his work get to Anglo readers, especially as he is an excellent translator into French of American & English poetry. As for the anthology, it is a wonderful collection, “The poetry in New European Poets is fiercely intelligent, often irreverent, & engaged with history & politics. The range of aesthetics & styles is exhilarating” as the blurb says. (Cover design © Kimberly Glyder Design)

"New European Poets collects, for the first time, the work of poets from the latter twentieth century & the beginning of the twenty-first, together with new generations of translators of the poetry of Europe. For this impressive undertaking, for the knowledge, discernment & generosity of its editors, my gratitude is immense." —Carolyn Forché.
