New Arrivals: Poetry!

...just got in a lot (ten crates) of modern and contemporary poetry. I'll be featuring select titles over the next few weeks.

Louis Zukofsky, A

“‘A’’s place is in the great line of American personal epic begun in Song of Myself and stretching through the Cantos, Paterson, Notes Toward a Supreme Fiction, and The Dream Songs. It should be read.”
—The Nation

“Zukofsky’s art, in this work, is without equal. No poet of our time can sound the resources of language, so actuate words to become all that they might be thought otherwise to engender.”
—Robert Creeley, The New York Times

“Magnificent: a great poem really rolling in all its power and splendor of language.”
—James Laughlin

Nikolai Bukharin, The Prison Poems

"Nikolai Bukharin (1888–1938), an original Bolshevik leader and a founder of the Soviet state, spent the last year of his life imprisoned by Stalin, awaiting a trial and eventual execution. Remarkably during that time, from March 1937 to March 1938, Bukharin wrote four book-length manuscripts by hand in his prison cell. Seventy years later, The Prison Poems is the last of the four prison manuscripts, which include How It All Began: The Prison Novel, and Socialism and Its Culture, to be published, allowing readers to grasp Bukharin’s vision in its full extent."
