The Poets Laureate Anthology by Elizabeth Hun Schmidt
The Poets Laureate Anthology

krisek, January 30, 2011

There variety in the poets and the poems makes this the kind of book that you can jump into at any point. Or, you can read the background on each of the Poets Laureate and read the poems in the order presented. Either way, this is a volume you will go back to over and over again. There were many familiar pieces, some I was happy to rediscover, and a number I was happy to know for the first time.

Night Train to Lisbon by Pascal Mercier
Night Train to Lisbon

krisek, January 30, 2011

The characters and settings are captivating. The writing and language are beautiful. I marvel at that beauty all the more to know that I read a translation of the original. It is rare to find a writer who is not afraid to take the time to develop characters and tell a story but Mercier did so. This is one of those books I find myself still thinking about months after I read it and wishing I could read it again for the the first time.
