Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. For nearly forty years Stephen Berg has established himself as a major American poet while exploring the boundaries between original verse and translations. These "versions" and translations aim to make accessible poetry from sources as diverse and intriguing as ancient Aztec, Chinese, and Inuit song, the poetry of Miklos Radnoti and Ruben Dario among many others.

Book News Annotation:

A remarkable anthology of Berg's translations representing his unique method of mingling his own poetic sensibility with the poets, thus retaining the profound music of the works. The collected poems, taken from more literal English translations, explore visions from Nahuatl religious chants, Eskimo songs, and Zen traditions as well as European, Latin American, and Russian offerings including Sappho, Rimbaud, Radnoti, Mayakovsky, Tsvetayeva, Annensky, and Paz. Includes short essays detailing the history of the translations.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
