Everymans Library continues to maintain its original commitment to publishing the most significant world literature in editions that reflect a tradition of fine bookmaking. Everymans Library pursues the highest standards, utilizing modern prepress, printing, and binding technologies to produce classically designed books printed on acid-free natural-cream-colored text paper and including Smyth-sewn, signatures, full-cloth cases with two-color case stamping, decorative endpapers, silk ribbon markers, and European-style half-round spines.

Synopsis:

Eating and drinking and the rituals that go with them are at least as important as loving in most peoples lives, yet for every hundred anthologies of poems about love, hardly one is devoted to the pleasures of the table. Eat, Drink, and Be Merry abundantly fills the gap.

All kinds of foods and beverages are laid out in these pages, along with picnics and banquets, intimate suppers and quiet dinners, noisy parties and public celebrations-in poems by Horace, Catullus, Hafiz, Rumi, Rilke, Moore, Nabokov, Updike, Mandelstam, Stevens, and many others. From Sylvia Plaths ecstatic vision of juice-laden berries in “Blackberrying” to D. H. Lawrences lush celebration of “Figs,” from the civilized comfort of Noël Cowards “Something on a Tray” to the salacious provocation of Swifts “Oysters,” from Li Po on “Drinking Alone” to Baudelaire on “The Soul of the Wine,” and from Emily Dickinsons “Forbidden Fruit” to Elizabeth Bishops “A Miracle for Breakfast,” Eat, Drink, and Be Merry serves up a tantalizing and variegated literary feast.

Synopsis:

Eating and drinking and the rituals that go with them are at least as important as loving in most people's lives, yet for every hundred anthologies of poems about love, hardly one is devoted to the pleasures of the table. Eat, Drink, and Be Merry abundantly remedies this deficiency.

All kinds of foods and beverages are laid out in these pages, along with picnics and banquets, intimate suppers and quiet dinners, noisy parties and public celebrations. Here is Sylvia Plath's ecstatic vision of juice-laden blackberries "big as the ball of my thumb, " and D. H. Lawrence's lush celebration of the secretive fig, with its "covert nakedness" enfolded on itself. Here is Baudelaire's enraptured impersonation of "The Soul of Wine" pouring itself into the "warm chest" of man. There is room as well for Robert Burns's lighthearted "Address to a Haggis" (the "great chieftain o the puddin'-race") and Christina Rossetti's immortal instructions for how to "Mix a pancake, stir a pancake, pop it in a pan." Poems by Horace, Virgil, Li Po, Hafez, Rumi, Dickinson, Moore, Nabokov, Updike, Mandelstam, Herbert, Stevens, and many others join in a literary feast from all ages, all places, and all cuisines.
