Victoria Jones kennt von Geburt an nur Waisenhäuser und Pflegefamilien. Wie ein Gegenstand wurde sie von einer Bleibe zur nächsten weitergereicht. Schon als Kind hat sie sich deshalb zu einer wortkargen, menschenscheuen Kratzbürste entwickelt. Einzig für Blumen interessiert sie sich, und für deren Sprache, denn die hat sie von Elizabeth gelernt, dem einzigen Menschen, von dem sie je Liebe erfahren hat. Mit achtzehn Jahren ist Victoria obdachlos und ganz auf sich allein gestellt – bis sie einen Job in einem kleinen Blumenladen findet. Auf dem Markt der Blumenhändler lernt sie schließlich einen jungen Mann kennen. Erstaunt stellt sie fest, dass Grant ebenfalls die Sprache der Blumen versteht. Gegen ihren Willen keimt in Victoria nach langer Zeit wieder Hoffnung: auf Liebe, auf eine Familie, auf ein Zuhause ... Doch ihre Vergangenheit, ihre schmerzvollen Erinnerungen an Elizabeth holen sie immer wieder ein. Kann es Grant gelingen, sie trotzdem zu lieben – so unberechenbar, so verstockt, so verletzlich, wie sie ist?

James Merrill and W.H. Auden offers a substantial analysis of the literary and personal relationship between two major twentieth-century poets. As Gwiazda argues, Auden's prominence in the post-World War II American poetry scene as a homosexual poet and critic makes his impact on Merrill particularly noteworthy. Merrill's imaginary recreation of Auden in his occult verse trilogy The Changing Light at Sandover (1982) offers a powerful statement about the dynamics of poetic influence between gay male poets. Combining archival research, textual analysis, and aspects of queer theory, James Merrill and W.H. Auden examines Sandover's implications to the contentious issues of homosexual identity and self-representation.

A beautiful hardcover selection of poems by one of the giants of contemporary American poetry. EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY POCKET POETS. James Merrill once called his body of work "chronicles of love and loss," and in twenty books written over four decades he used the details of his own life--comic and haunting, exotic and domestic--to shape a portrait that in turn mirrored the image of our world and our moment. Like Wallace Stevens and W. H. Auden before him, Merrill sought to quicken the pulse of a poem in surprising and compelling ways--ways, indeed, that changed how we came to see our own lives. Years ago, the critic Helen Vendler wrote of Merrill, "He has become one of our indispensable poets." This volume brings together an entirely new pocket-sized selection of the best of Merrill's work. His poetry dazzles at every turn, and this balanced and compact selection will be an ideal introduction to the work for both students and general readers, and an instant favorite among his familiars.

Die Gedichte Robert Frosts (1874–1963) gehören nicht nur zum festen Bestand amerikanischer Lyrik der Moderne, sie haben ihren Platz in der Weltliteratur gefunden. Der vorliegende Band macht den deutschen Lesern die bekanntesten, die kanonisch gewordenen Gedichte von Robert Frost zugänglich wie "Rast am Wald an einem verschneiten Tag" oder "Der nicht genommene Weg". Frost hat sich um einen natürlichen, organischen Sprachfluss bemüht und sich zugleich stets dem freien Vers widersetzt, die Gedichte suchen die Nähe zur gesprochenen Sprache und halten doch an der Besonderheit dichterischer Sprache fest. Die Natur, die äußere und die innere des Menschen, hat Frost fasziniert, der als Farmer gleichzeitig einen unsentimentalen Blick auf sie hatte. Aber auch die menschliche Natur zeigt sich in allen ihren Feinheiten und Brüchen, so Frost, besonders dem Dichter. So ist seine Lyrik in ihrer klassischen Schönheit auch eine Begegnung mit uns selbst.

Allure of the Incomplete, Imperfect, and Impermanent

Designing and Appreciating Architecture as Nature

Architects have long operated based on the assumption that a building is 'complete' once construction has finished. Striving to create a perfect building, they wish for it to stay in its original state indefinitely, viewing any subsequent alterations as unintended effects or the results of degeneration. The ideal is for a piece of architecture to remain permanently perfect and complete. This contrasts sharply with reality where changes take place as people move in, requirements change, events happen, and building materials are subject to wear and tear. Rumiko Handa argues it is time to correct this imbalance. Using examples ranging from the Roman Coliseum to Japanese tea rooms, she draws attention to an area that is usually ignored: the allure of incomplete, imperfect and impermanent architecture. By focusing on what happens to buildings after they are ‘complete’, she shows that the ‘afterlife’ is in fact the very ‘life’ of a building. However, the book goes beyond theoretical debate. Addressing professionals as well as architecture students and educators, it persuades architects of the necessity to anticipate possible future changes and to incorporate these into their original designs.

Englisch und deutsch. Übersetzt von Johanna Wange. »Sie ist mehr als modern; sie ist praktisch Science-Fiction«, schreibt der Guardian über Kate Tempest. Zu ihren Einflüssen zählen James Joyce und Wu-Tang Clan, Public Enemy und Virginia Woolf. Sie beherrscht den innigen Volksliedton ebenso wie Londons Straßenslang, wandelt virtuos zwischen lyrischer Tradition und Hip-Hop. Ihre Gedichte bemächtigen sich auf radikal heutige, politische Weise des Mythos von Teiresias, einer zweigeschlechtlichen Figur, von den Göttern geblendet und prophetisch begabt. In vier Teilen folgt der Zyklus dem Kind, dem Jüngling, der Frau und dem Mann, vermittelt eindrucksvoll, wie es ist, alt zu werden und »sehend«, dazu verurteilt, unserer neoliberalen Gesellschaft die Wahrheit zu sagen – und keiner hört zu. Lyrik-Empfehlung 2016 der Deutschen Akademie für Sprache und Dichtung, der Stiftung Lyrik Kabinett und der Literaturwerkstatt Berlin.

Der zweite Teil der großen Geschichte von Siebenbürgen vor dem Ersten Weltkrieg nach „Die Schrift in Flammen“, die 2012 erstmals auf Deutsch erschienen ist: Der Erzähler Bánffy, 1921/22 Außenminister von Ungarn, später Staatsangehöriger von Rumänien, schildert die Jahrhundertwende als Zeit sich verschärfender nationaler und sozialer Gegensätze. Der liberale Idealist Bálint Abády verstrickt sich immer tiefer in eine unglückliche Liebesgeschichte; sein Neffe und Freund, der begnadete Musiker László Gyeröffy, geht willentlich und unabwendbar den Weg der Selbstzerstörung. Im Glanz der letzten Jahre der Monarchie taumelt die Welt von gestern ihrem Ende entgegen.
