The Seagull Book Review:

Chekhov is a unique force in modern drama. His works have long been cherished for their brilliant wit and unusual ability to provide striking insights into the human condition. In these stunning, individually published translations of three of Chekhov's most popular and beloved plays, Laurence Senelick presents a fresh perspective on the master playwright and his groundbreaking dramas. This volume illuminates the timeless trials of art and love and bring Chekhov's memorable characters to life. Each of these three plays showcases the hallmark features of a Chekhov classic: clashing desires, complex family dynamics, the individual's loss of balance and sense of identity in the shifting eruptions of society and a modernizing Russia, and the angst of artistic struggle and ambition. Supplementing each of the plays are an account of Chekhov's life, a note on the translation, introductions to each work, and variant lines - often removed due to government censorship - which illuminate the context in which they were written and shed light on Chekhov's work as a playwright. These editions are the perfect guides to enriching our understanding of this great dramatist or to staging a production.

The Seagull Book Review:

The Seagull Anton Pavlovich Chekhov - The best-selling official for Novel that everybody is looking for. The Seagull is a play by Russian dramatist Anton Chekhov, authored within 1895 as well as created in 1896. The Seagull is usually regarded as the first of his 4 major plays. It dramatizes the artistic and romantic conflicts between 4 characters: the popular middlebrow story writer Boris Trigorin, the ingenue Nina, the fading actress Irina Arkadina, as well as the son of her the symbolist playwright Konstantin Treplyov.Though the character of Trigorin is regarded as Chekhov's best male role as Chekhov's other full-length plays, The Seagull is based in an ensemble cast of varied, completely developed characters. In distinctions to the melodrama of mainstream 19th-century theatre, lurid steps (such as Konstantin's suicide attempts) aren't shown onstage. Characters tend to talk in tactics that skirt around problems instead of addressing them directly; quite simply, their lines are full of what's known in remarkable practice as subtext.The opening night of the very first creation was a popular failure. Vera Komissarzhevskaya, taking part in Nina, was so unnerved through the hostility of this market that she lost voice. The audience was left by Chekhov and spent the previous 2 actions behind the scenes. When supporters published to him the generation, later on, grew to become successful, he assumed that these were simply attempting to be sort. When Konstantin Stanislavski, the seminal Russian theatre professional of the moment, directed it inside 1898 for the Moscow Art Theatre of his, the play would have been a triumph. Stanislavski's creation became "one of probably the greatest incidents in the record of Russian theatre and among probably the greatest brand new advancements in the history of planet drama".Stanislavski's The Seagull was caused by direction to be perceived as a tragedy via overzealousness with the idea of subtext, while Chekhov intended it to become a comedy.

A Seagull Lunch and Other Nature Poems Book Review:

Many poems in this book are simple descriptions of the wonders of nature. Some address the tragedy of nature’s suffering caused by human thoughtlessness and negligence. Others are a response to the magical change of seasons, a cycle that transforms the colors of the earth’s foliage, bringing the advent of animals’ change of habitats, along with hurricanes, monsoons, and other storms. From one season to the next, the earth bears fruit, yields crops, and its meadows bloom. Many of the poems are from real-life experience, while others are products of imagination peaked by nature’s numerous and precious gifts for enjoyment, sustenance, and preservation. Some of these poems offer words of caution about human carelessness in preserving nature and its wonders. Does one ever pause to consider what it would be like without the advent of autumn, or any other season? Yet, the truth is that in some parts of the world seasons are already disappearing. These poems stress that we cannot stand idly by when there is proven scientific evidence that destructive climate change is a reality: disappearance of some island nations, loss of farm land, steady crumbling of glaciers and ice caps, and the demise of sea life. They plead: Save our planet!

Together Still Book Review:

The international community of letters mourned the recent death of Yves Bonnefoy, universally acclaimed as one of France's greatest poets of the last half century. A prolific author, he was often considered a candidate for the Nobel Prize and published a dozen major collections of poetry in verse and prose, several books of dream-like tales, and numerous studies of literature and art. His oeuvre has been translated into scores of languages, and he himself was a celebrated translator of Shakespeare, Yeats, Keats, and Leopardi. Together Still is his final poetic work, composed just months before his death. The book is nothing short of a literary testament, addressed to his wife, his daughter, his friends, and his readers throughout the world. In these pages, he ruminates on his legacy to future generations, his insistence on living in the present, his belief in the triumphant lessons of beauty, and, above all, his courageous identification of poetry with hope.

Sebastian Dreaming Book Review:

Sebastian Dreaming comprises the second book in James Reidel's Our Trakl series. Published posthumously in the original German in 1915, this is the second and last collection prepared by Trakl himself. Indeed, the Austrian poet may have tied his own fate to it. During his last days in a military hospital, Trakl had politely requested proofs of Sebastian Dreaming from his publisher and waited a week before overdosing on cocaine. He had been told once before that the war, which drove him into madness, had indefinitely postponed his masterpiece. Now the wait is over for Trakl's book to appear separately and in English. Until now translations of the poems from this collection have appeared in selections and complete volumes. Reidel has chosen to present the book individually, as Trakl wanted his book experienced. To achieve this, a certain verisimilitude in these English renderings has been achieved--even omitting the German facing texts is at work here--for which the translator has gone to great lengths, with an eye for seeing Trakl in his time and place, not only as an early modern poet but one whose strange and intriguing language and setting came from another century and still haunt us in ours.

In Field Latin Book Review:

Lutz Seiler grew up in the former East Germany and has lived most of his life outside Berlin. His poems, not surprisingly, are works of the border, the in-between, and the provincial, marked by whispers, weather, time's relentless passing, the dead and their ghosts. It is a contemporary poetry of landscape, fully aware of its literary and non-literary forebears, a walker's view of the place Seiler lives, anchored by close, unhurried attention to particulars. With his precise, memorable language--rendered here in compelling English--Seiler has pulled off a difficult feat: recontextualizing and radically personalizing the long tradition of German nature writing for the twenty-first century.

Infinity Diary Book Review:

This volume of poems by Cyril Wong, one of the leading figures of poetry in Singapore, reflects the many ways in which love between two men can unfold, balancing emotional outpourings with meditations on the nature of relationships. The poetry punctures the sometimes oppressive reality of life in a city that is hypermodern yet far from free and, through twists and turns, ultimately lifts the reader to a place beyond pleasure and pain. Sensual, anecdotal and, of course, confessional, Infinity Diary charts an evolution in the work of one of Asia's most intimate English-language poets.

Squandered Advice Book Review:

The first English translation of a major work of postwar German poetry. Austrian writer Ilse Aichinger (1921-2016) was a member of the Gruppe 47 writers' group, which sought to renew German-language literature after World War II. From a wide-ranging literary career that encompassed all genres, Squandered Advice was Aichinger's sole poetry collection. The book gathers poems written over several decades, yet Aichinger's poetic voice remains remarkably consistent, frequently addressing us or a third party, often in the imperative, with many poems written in the form of a question. Even though they use free verse throughout, the poems are still tightly structured, often around sounds or repetition, using spare language. Phrases are often fragmentary, torn off and juxtaposed as if in a collage. Isolated and haunting, the images are at times everyday, at other times surreal, suggesting dreams or memories. The tone ranges from reassuring and gentle to disjointed and disturbing, but the volume was carefully composed by the author into an integral whole, not chronological but following its own poetic logic. This new translation makes Aichinger's critically acclaimed book, which has inspired poets the German-speaking world for decades, available to English-language readers for the first time.

Sixty Poems Book Review:

From the Pulitzer Prize winning poet comes this “nearly perfect collection issued to celebrate his being named poet laureate of the United States” (The New York Times). Charles Simic has been widely celebrated for his slyly original poetic imagery; his social, political, and moral alertness; his uncanny ability to make the ordinary extraordinary; and, not least, his sardonic humor. Gathering much of his material from the seemingly mundane minutiae of American culture, Simic unpacks spiritual concerns and the weight of history with a nimble wit, shifting between moments of clear vision and intense poetic revelation. “It takes just one glimpse of Charles Simic’s work to establish that he is a master, ruler of his own eccentric kingdom of jittery syntax and signature insight.”—Los Angeles Times “Few poets have been as influential—or as inimitable.”—The New York Times Book Review
