Wallace Stevens (1879-1955) lived a richly imaginative life that he expressed in his poems. The Whole Harmonium presents Stevens within the living context of his times and as the creator of a poetry that continues to shape how we understand and define ourselves. A lawyer who rose to become an insurance-company vice president, Stevens composed brilliant poems on long walks to work and at other stolen moments. His first book of poems, Harmonium, published when he was forty-four, drew on his profound understanding of Modernism to create a distinctive and inimitable American idiom. Over time he became acquainted with peers such as Robert Frost and William Carlos Williams, but his personal style remained unique. The complexity of Stevens's poetry rests on emotional, philosophical, and linguistic tensions that thread their way intricately through his poems. And while he can be challenging to understand, Stevens has proven time and again to be one of the most richly rewarding poets to read.

Dream Song is the story of John Berryman, one of the most gifted poets of a generation that included Elizabeth Bishop, Randall Jarrell, Robert Lowell, and Dylan Thomas. Using Berryman's unpublished letters and poetry, as well as interviews with those who knew him intimately, Paul Mariani captures Berryman's genius and the tragedy that dogged him, while at the same time illuminating one of the most provocative periods in American letters. Here we witness Berryman's struggles with alcohol and drugs, his obsession with women and fame, and his friendships with luminary writers of the century. Mariani creates an unforgettable portrait of a poet who, by the time of his suicide at age fifty-seven, had won a Pulitzer Prize and a National Book Award.

William Carlos Williams (1883–1963) emerged alongside Pound, Eliot, Stevens, Frost, and Yeats as one of the foremost poets of the 20th century. Paterson, Williams's epic masterpiece, raised everyday American speech to the highest levels of poetic imagination. A finalist for the national Book Award and a New York Times Notable Book, William Carlos Williams: A New World Naked is a remarkable, rich blend of art and scholarship. From a small-town doctor who delivered more than 3,000 babies to an extraordinary revolutionary, Paul Mariani unfolds Williams' life and times while simultaneously letting the reader inside the poet's mind and language in this definitive masterwork.

Man nennt ihn auch den Deutschen, den Walzer von Diabelli, über den Beethoven seine 33 Variationen komponierte. Irene Dische hat ihren großen Roman "Ein fremdes Gefühl" nach dieser Komposition und ihren Stimmungen geschrieben und nun vollkommen überarbeitet. "Veränderungen über einen Deutschen" ist die Geschichte eines Mannes, der nicht weiß, was Liebe eigentlich ist. Sein Naturell und seine Begabungen brachten ihn dazu, sich ausschließlich den Geisteswissenschaften zu verschreiben. 33 Veränderungen lassen ihn, beinahe gegen seinen Willen, all die normalen menschlichen Empfindungen erfahren, bevor er schließlich so etwas wie die fast vollkommene Liebe findet. Die Geschichte spielt vor dem Hintergrund der großen Veränderungen in Deutschland nach dem Fall der Mauer. »Ein reiches Buch. Reich an Beobachtung, Lebenserfahrung, Galle, verhaltenem Pathos. Ein ganz schwarzer Schelmenroman. Vielleicht hat Irene Dische sogar recht. ›Liebe kann nur dort entstehen, wo Hass den Boden freigetrampelt hat.‹« Joachim Kaiser, Süddeutsche Zeitung. »Ein einzigartiges Werk.« Neue Zürcher Zeitung

"Wallace Stevens and the Pennsylvania Keystone represents the definitive work on origins as they appear in Stevens's poetry. Author Thomas Francis Lombardi, a poet himself, traces Stevens's originary influences - place, family, tradition, the feminine, ethnic heritage, and religious roots - against the cosmopolitan influences of Cambridge and New York and demonstrates the extent to which Stevens's formative and early adult years shaped his entire life and influenced the grand sweep of his poetry." "That influence spread itself across Stevens's entire canon, from the early verse through Harmonium, Ideas of Order, Parts of a World, Notes toward a Supreme Fiction, Transport to Summer, The Auroras of Autumn, The Rock, and finally Opus Posthumous. Though Lombardi acknowledges the importance of the global presence in Stevens's poetry, he argues that the hallmark of the poet's vision is the presence of his Pennsylvania provincialism and the increasing significance he attached to his roots as he grew older." "Stevens's life epitomized a personal and irresistible rite of passage toward origins, a universal odyssey that sensitive people undertake over the course of their lives - the ethnocentric pull toward the native experience. That attraction to his native soil would inform much of the content of his poetry. To this end, he wished to be one with his ancestors for the reason of experiencing a sense of identity with the provincial past, not in spite of, but because of it. Without an adequate understanding of this relationship, no in-depth comprehension of Stevens's poetry seems possible."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Dylan liebt Maddie und ist mit ihr unterwegs nach L.A., Stadt der Hoffnung so vieler Menschen auf eine bessere Zukunft. Die Filmstars Amberton und Casey sind nur zur Tarnung miteinander verheiratet und ständig auf der Suche nach Sex und Bewunderung.
