Die deutsch-englische Gedichtauswahl (als Paperback und E-Book) widmet Ingeborg Santor ihrer langjährigen Londoner Übersetzerin Ruth Ingram. Drei Zwischentitel stehen für die Hauptthemen des Bandes:'Calendar Leaves' (Kalenderblätter), 'Catching Light' (Lichtfänger) und 'Years gone by' (Mit den Jahren. Wie die Natur sich mit den Jahreszeiten verändert, wird in diesem Gedichten oft aus ungewohntem Blickwinkel gesehen und spürbar gemacht. Immer wieder in poetische Sprache verwandelt auch die Faszination des Lichts - Licht, das nicht nur die von der Autorin geliebten nördlichen Landschaften am Meer, sondern auch ganz alltägliche Dinge aufleuchten lässt und zu kleinen Kunstwerken machen kann. Prägende Lebensphasen wie Kindheit, Glück und Verlust in der Liebe, Vergänglichkeit und endgültige Abschiede finden im letzten Drittel des Bandes eindringlichen lyrischen Ausdruck. - Ihre durchweg gelungene Entsprechung finden die Gedichte in der einfühlsamen Übersetzung ins Englische von Ruth Ingram. Die Auswahl beruht weitgehend auf Santors Lyrikband LICHTFÄNGER (BoD 2014), enthält aber auch Gedichte aus früheren, inzwischen vergriffenen Büchern.

"Here is Creeley at his skillfully selected best: full of the melodies of plain speech, concise yet resonant with emotion."--Juliana Spahr, author of This Connection of Everyone with Lungs "So fantastically simple and so satisfyingly complicated, these poems band together like the days in 'One Day': 'One day after another-/ perfect./ They all fit.'"--John Ashbery "Beautifully edited by Ben Friedlander with tenderness, intelligence, and care. A superb selection, well-introduced. Selected Poems provides a great sense of the range of Creeley's accomplishment--these poems among the most important of our time--a way of writing with the hesitations and grace of a new-found line, thinking informed by sources from Emily Dickinson to Charlie Parker. Selected Poems is at once a tribute to Creeley, a perfect introduction for new readers, and a valuable distillation for those who have already acquired a taste for Creeley's poetry. The perfect assembly to and for one so fond of saying 'onward.' We can now go onward with these selected poems, onward with these well-chosen words, with thanks to Robert Creeley and to Ben Friedlander."--Hank Lazer, author of The New Spirit "Benjamin Friedlander, himself a fine poet-critic and a great connoisseur of Creeley's poetry, has put together a superb selection."--Marjorie Perloff "An excellent selection and introduction. It is an edition that acknowledges work that has defined the poet's career while offering a new narrative for the entire oeuvre. It will join UC Press's distinguished and definitive editionsof postwar poetry and will provide us all with a summary guide to Creeley's best work."--Michael Davidson "In a quiet moment I hear Bob pause where I never would have expected it. Such resolve. Such heart. And an ear to reckon with. No truly further American poem without his."--Clark Coolidge, author of Counting on Planet Zero

Edith Wharton, the first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction with her novel The Age of Innocence, was also a brilliant poet. This revealing collection of 134 poems brings together a fascinating array of her verse—including fifty poems that have never before been published. The celebrated American novelist and short story writer Edith Wharton, author of The House of Mirth, Ethan Frome, and the Pulitzer Prize–winning The Age of Innocence, was also a dedicated, passionate poet. A lover of words, she read, studied, and composed poetry all of her life, publishing her first collection of poems at the age of sixteen. In her memoir, A Backward Glance, Wharton declared herself dazzled by poetry; she called it her “chiefest passion and greatest joy.” The 134 selected poems in this volume include fifty published for the first time. Wharton’s poetry is arranged thematically, offering context as the poems explore new facets of her literary ability and character. These works illuminate a richer, sometimes darker side of Wharton. Her subjects range from the public and political—her first published poem was about a boy who hanged himself in jail—to intimate lyric poems expressing heartbreak, loss, and mortality. She wrote frequently about works of art and historical figures and places, and some of her most striking work explores the origins of creativity itself. These selected poems showcase Wharton’s vivid imagination and her personal experience. Relatively overlooked until now, her poetry and its importance in her life provide an enlightening lens through which to view one of the finest writers of the twentieth century.
