The Odyssey (Paperback): Homer The Odyssey (Paperback)
Homer; Translated by Emily Wilson 1
R371 R288 Discovery Miles 2 880 Save R83 (22%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

The first great adventure story in the Western canon, The Odyssey is a poem about violence and the aftermath of war; about wealth, poverty and power; about marriage, family and identity; and about travellers, hospitality and the changing meanings of home in a strange world. This vivid new translation-the first by a woman-matches the number of lines in the Greek original, striding at Homer's sprightly pace. Emily Wilson employs elemental, resonant language and an iambic pentameter to produce a translation with an enchanting "rhythm and rumble" that avoids proclaiming its own grandeur. An engrossing tale told in a compelling new voice that allows contemporary readers to luxuriate in Homer's descriptions and similes and to thrill at the tension and excitement of its hero's adventures, Wilson recaptures what is "epic" about this wellspring of world literature.

Die Lenige Liefde (Afrikaans, Paperback): Daniel Hugo Die Lenige Liefde (Afrikaans, Paperback)
Daniel Hugo
R143 Discovery Miles 1 430 Shipped within 10 - 15 working days

Die liefde, natuur en digterskap is die oorwegende temas van die bundel en elk word vanuit ’n wye spektrum perspektiewe bekyk. Herman de Coninck se werk spreek van innoverende beeldspraak, totaal gestroop van pretensie – en Daniel Hugo slaag daarin om in sy vertalings die unieke karakter van De Coninck se werk te behou. Herman de Coninck het die Afrikaanse en Suid-Afrikaanse leser se verbeelding aangegryp met Liefde, Miskien (vertaal deur Daniel Hugo) in 1998. Die lenige liefde, ’n bloemlesing uit al De Coninck se werke, sal weereens die leser betower. Meer toeganklike poesie kom ’n mens nie aldag tee nie. De Coninck se werk spreek van innoverende beeldspraak waarvan die gebrek aan pretensie die leser maak lees, luister en onthou.

The Poems of Hesiod (Paperback): Hesiod The Poems of Hesiod (Paperback)
Hesiod; Volume editing by R.M. Frazer
R544 Discovery Miles 5 440 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

"Besides Homer, there is Hesiod." These words still contain much truth today. Hesiod is a very important poet, and for this reason his two surviving poems, "Theogony "and "Works and Days, "deserve to be presented as accurately and attractively as possible. R. M. Frazer has done this: His new translations are faithful to the matter and spirit of the originals, and his commentary makes the poems understandable and enjoyable.Hesiod is the first Greek and, therefore, the first European we can know as a real person, for, unlike Homer, he tells us about himself in his poems. Hesiod seems to have been a successful farmer and a rather gloomy though not humorless man. One suspects from his concern for the bachelor's lot and some rather unflattering remarks about women that he was never married. A close study of both poems reveals the same personality -that of a deeply religious man concerned with the problems of justice and fate.The "Theogony "represents the first codification of the Greek pantheon. Hesiod, of course, did not invent the gods, but he gave the Greeks a clear picture of their forms, functions, and relationships. Thus, the poem deals with the high epic theme of the creation of the divine order of the world under the direction of Zeus. "Works and Days, "by contrast, considers justice and work in the context of Hesiod's own life. The difference in subject matter produces a difference in style: "Theogony "is strongly influenced by the epic conventions; "Works and Days "is more modern and freewheeling.To get a fuller picture of Hesiod and his poems, we must try to understand him in relation to his times. The eighth century, when Hesiod lived, was the time of the great Greek awakening after the period of relative darkness ushered in by the fall of the old Mycenaean kingdoms around 1125 B.C. Hesiod thus lived at the beginning of the Greek classical period, and his poems influenced not only that age but also Western culture in our day.

Eternity - Selected Poems (Paperback): Tracy K. Smith Eternity - Selected Poems (Paperback)
Tracy K. Smith 1
R253 R172 Discovery Miles 1 720 Save R81 (32%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Tracy K. Smith's poetry seems to contain the whole universe. From the earliest work gathered here, we find the voices and experiences of women who have lived adventurously, who have travelled, desired, and found themselves drinking at bars with strangers in lands far from home; we find records of tenderness and of conflict, of the cruelty inflicted on humanity by humanity, and remarkable documentary work bearing witness to the victims of injustice, from a Native American boy separated from his family by the US Government to the girls kidnapped as 'wives' for rebel commanders in Uganda. This volume gathers the poet's selections from her four collections published since 2003, including the Pulitzer Prize-winning Life on Mars, which expands the scope still further, finding in outer space - and the work of David Bowie - a rich vein of questions about life and death, power and paternalism, and race; and Wade in the Water, whose explorations of motherhood and the destruction of the environment intertwine with verbatim histories of slavery and the American Civil War. These are sensuous, light-filled poems, capable of finding the luminous, the transcendent and a principle of love in even the most difficult of subjects.

These are the voices of those who are silent: in the graveyards, holy wells, the river, the changing tides. A ghostly choir of lost children, hermits, lovers and rough sleepers, serving maids and sailor boys, saints and hermaphrodites resounding through the rhythms of the water. Places and objects communicate also: a chapel, oak tree, back-lane, woodland, riverside town; bones sing and a bell tolls. The poems speak with them and for them, channelling their messages, their visions and their warnings.

R204 R156 Discovery Miles 1 560 Save R48 (24%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Self-made poet and social media sensation Pierre Jeanty has triumphed once again with his most recent collection, Apologies That Never Came. From words that never left your mouth to feelings you held on to, these words explore an unspoken space in heartbreak and pain, providing solace to the wounded soul. With massive social media followings and a loyal fan base, Jeanty is poised for great success for his sixth poetry collection entitled Apologies That Never Came. In this series of prose and poetry, both the words and sentiment are simple, uninterrupted by excess flair or complexity. Apologies That Never Came dissects the agony of heartbreak and loss through the unexpressed words and feelings; what is left over at the end. While his poems and prose delve into pain, they ultimately transcend that heartbreak, awakening everyone's preexisting strength and capacity for growth. Much like in his previous collections, Jeanty has successfully created a tool for unity and healing out of the torment of his experiences.

Leonard Nolens; Translated by Daniel Hugo
R143 Discovery Miles 1 430 Shipped within 10 - 15 working days

Sedert sy debuut in 1969 met die bundel Orpheushanden het Leonard Nolens hom gevestig as een van die beduidendste Vlaamse digters van ons tyd. Drie versamelbundels het reeds van sy omvangryke oeuvre verskyn en sy poesie het talle Vlaamse en Nederlandse pryse ontvang, onder meer die Jan Campert- en Constantijn Huygens-pryse, die VSB-prys en die Prijs der Nederlandse letteren. Vir hierdie versameling Afrikaanse vertalings het Daniel Hugo veral gekies uit gedigte oor Antwerpen, die stad waar Nolens woon en werk; die agtergrond van talle gedigte wat soms ook as stilswyende gespreksgenoot vir die digter optree. Die ander durende gespreksgenoot is sy geliefde. Leonard Nolens is 'n liefdesdigter sonder gelyke in die moderne Nederlandse letterkunde. Nolens skryf ook oor onderwerpe soos musiek, ander Europese lande en oor die mens se stryd om met homself tot 'n vergelyk te kom.

Hoewel Olga Kirsch die enigste Joodse stem in die Afrikaanse digkuns is, is dit skaars bekend onder lede van die Suid-Afrikaanse Joodse gemeenskap. Olga Kirsch was, na Elisabeth Eybers, maar die tweede vrou wat ‘n digbundel in Afrikaans laat verskyn het.

Die doelwit van hierdie biografie is om te keer dat haar werk vergete raak en om te wys waarom haar werk belangrik is, nie net in Suid-Afrika nie, maar ook in Israel.

Dit ondersoek nie net Kirsch se rol as Afrikaanse Joodse digter nie, maar ook haar as voorbeeld van ‘n grensoorsteker tussen kulture en veeltalige immigrante-digter. Daarom is van haar Engelse en Hebreeuse digkuns ook ingesluit in hierdie werk.

Quite Footsteps explores moral themes relating to political and social change in South Africa. An obscene clamour that the poet sees as eviscerating our country's humanity becomes the catalyst for an excoriating attack on a time that "renders everything as matters of abuse", and a passionate demand that we find in ourselves – for ourselves, and in honour of the spirits of the dead – the capacity for the humane. This major work by one of South Africa's poets will trouble every conscience, even as it revives our faltering hope for a healed nation.

Mark Waldron

Sometimes metaphysical, sometimes apparently confessional, sometimes challenging, often hilarious, Mark Waldron's poems take you by the arm and usher you in to a dark/light, funny/sad, silly/serious world which is exactly what the actual world looks like if you creep up on it and take it by surprise. As human beings living in society we're supposed to keep what we really think hidden, but the poems of Sweet, like Rinky-Dink want to look at the absurdity behind our posturing, because in looking at it squarely in the face we might hope to have some freedom from it. Sweet, like Rinky-Dink is Mark Waldron's fourth collection, following Meanwhile, Trees (2016), published by Bloodaxe, The Brand New Dark (2008) and The Itchy Sea (2011), both from Salt.
