This incisive study of an important modernist poet tackles a lot of the thorny issues that surround his work and confronts Eliot’s deep prejudices directly. It’s an important piece of scholarship from the University of California Press.
This translated collection showcases the wonderfully protean works of Horace but calling on thirty-odd poets to translate poems. The result is lively, fun, and unexpected. A big thank you to Princeton University Press for publishing this!
The Lattimore translation of the Iliad is often assigned for the classroom, because it captures the excitement of the Iliad with accuracy and a light touch. This new(ish) edition from the University of Chicago Press has a stylish design.
This beautifully assembled book is a fascinating look at a Anna Morandi Manzolini, an eighteenth-century Italian woman who became one of the most famous anatomical sculptors—creating most of her work in wax—of the period. A lovely read for those who love the weird and wacky of history, which is also from the University of Chicago Press.
Read about the work and life of Man Ray in his own words, from his time in Paris to his years in Los Angeles. His journals, letters, and poetry are all featured in this charming book from Getty Publications.
