Descrita por el propio autor como una obra policíaca, aunque no lo parezca, Amberes fue redactada veintidós años antes de su primera publicación en 2002, y descubre al Roberto Bolaño más experimental y complejo.

A caballo entre la narrativa y la prosa poética, Amberes se compone de 56 fragmentos, 56 balas perdidas cuyo objetivo permanece oculto al lector. Como pequeños fogonazos sin orden ni concierto que solamente insinúan la existencia de una luz más cegadora, los recuerdos y divagaciones que, en voz de distintos personajes --vivos y muertos--, llenan estas páginas, nos hablan de jorobados, drogas, prostitutas, películas, escritores sin palabras, asesinatos, asesinos y asesinados.
Bamboleándose entre ficción y realidad, entre cordura y locura, el lector se enfrenta a un caso en un tablero con todas las piezas, pero sin ninguna garantía de que tenga solución.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Bolaño's radical first novel.

Written when he was only twenty-seven, Antwerp can be viewed as the Big Bang of Roberto Bolaño's fictional universe. This novel presents the genesis of Bolano's enterprise in prose; all the elements are here, highly compressed, at the moment when his talent explodes. From this springboard―which Bolaño chose to publish in 2002, twenty years after he'd written it ("and even that I can't be certain of")―as if testing out a high dive, he would plunge into the unexplored depths of the modern novel.

Voices speak from a dream, from a nightmare, from passersby, from an omniscient narrator, from "Roberto Bolano." Antwerp's fractured narration in fifty-four sections moves in multiple directions and cuts to the bone.

Anchor Anthology Of French Poetry

Anchor Anthology Of French Poetry

$19.00
More Info
First published in 1958, this collection introduced an indispensible corpus of western poetry to countless American college students, francophiles, and would-be poets -- among them Patti Smith, whose vocation was formed she says, by reading this book. The poetic and cultural tradition forged by the Symbolist poets -- Baudelaire, Rimbaud, Verlaine, Appollinaire, and others -- reverberated throughout the avant garde and counter-cultures of the twentieth century. Modernism, surrealism, abstract impressionism, and the Beat movement are unthinkable without the example of these poets and their theories of art, making this reissue possibly the hippest "dead white European male" anthology ever published.

Including translations by Richmond Lattimore, W. S. Merwin, Dudley Fitts, and Richard Wilbur, this anthology has stood the test of time in terms of its selection and scholarly apparatus. Now back in print after twenty years in a fresh new edition, the book features an introduction by Patti Smith that testifies to its epochal impact on her own career, as well as those of other influential latter-day poets, including Lou Reed and Jim Carroll. This rediscovered gem is sure to inspire a new generation.

Arriere-Pays ( French List )

Arriere-Pays ( French List )

$25.00
More Info
Since the publication of his first book in 1953, Yves Bonnefoy has become one of the most important French poets of the postwar years. At last, we have the long-awaited English translation of Yves Bonnefoy's celebrated work, L'Arrière-pays, which takes us to the heart of his creative process and to the very core of his poetic spirit. In his poem, "The Convex Mirror," Bonnefoy writes: "Look at them down there, at that crossroads, / They seem to hesitate, then go on." The idea of the crossroads haunts Bonnefoy's work, as he is troubled by the idea that the path not taken may lead to the arrière-pays, a place of greater plenitude, and of more authentic being--an "elsewhere in the absolute." Seized by this fear that what he terms "presence" exists always somewhere else, a little further on, Bonnefoy here sets out on a labyrinthine quest to find traces of this "original place," which he locates not only in objects of knowledge and experience as diverse as the deserts of Asia, a hill fort in India, a church in Armenia, the painting of Piero della Francesca but also, crucially, in the undivided intensity of his experiences as a child. Written with a visionary grace, The Arrière-pays is a spiritual testament to art, philosophy, and poetry. Enriched by a new preface by the poet, this volume also includes three recent essays in which he returns to his original account of an ethical and aesthetic haunting, one that recounts the struggle between our instinct to idealize--what he deems our eternal Platonism--and the equally strong need to combat this and to be reconciled with our nature as finite beings, made of flesh and blood, in the world of the here and now.
