Descripción Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2014. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Praise for The Poetry of Derek Walcott 1948-2013 : " The Poetry of Derek Walcott . . . [is] a rich and beautiful new selection of [Walcott's] life's work, edited by Glyn Maxwell . . . Language becomes a means of mastering his surroundings, enabling him to gain an almost magical power over the elements; language is more real to him than reality itself . . . These magician's powers are rare enough in twentieth-century poetry. But what is even rarer than the ability is the desire to write, as Walcott does, with such abundance and felicity . . . Perhaps no poet since Tennyson has created the kind of rapt verbal spell that Walcott can produce . . . Yet Walcott's style . . . is also unmistakably of twentieth-century vintage . . . Its modernity lies in the extraordinary freedom of Walcott's images, which go beyond mixed metaphor to achieve a kind of synesthesia . . . The associative freedom of Walcott's style goes hand in hand with its visual logic. Walcott is an accomplished painterlike several of his books, the cover of The Poetry of Derek Walcott bears one of his landscapes . . . Walcott . . . [gives] us not merely what is seen but the rhythm of seeing itself . . . By combining the grammar of vision with the freedom of metaphor, Walcott produces a beautiful style that is also a philosophical style . . . He remains a poet of astonishing inventiveness . . . Perhaps the greatest proof of his achievement is that, after a lifetime of remaking the world in language, Walcott can force even death to submit to the power of his metaphors." Adam Kirsch, The New Yorker "From his earliest poemssuch as 'In My Eighteenth Year,' written when he was that age Walcott's voice is unornamented but carries a profound moral authority. His style is a synthesis of the influences that made the island: equal parts Shakespeare and slang. Walcott speaks ever as an outsider; the closest he gets to belonging is when he speaks for a country that is no one country . . . There is a lot here, and no wonder. Walcott, now 84, has written a rich and varied body of work, surveying the whole literary tradition. The Poetry of Derek Walcott is the most thorough single-volume selection of the poet's work to date . . . Maxwellnow a well-known writer in his own right, but also Walcott's former student and friendhas assembled an enlightening selection . . . There is nothing equal to this body of work anywhere else in literature: a chronicle of the effects of colonialism so torn that its love and hate for its origins must be expressed in equal measure. As Shabine, the speaker of Walcott's mini-epic 'The Schooner Flight' says, 'either I'm nobody, or I'm a nation.'" Craig Morgan Teicher, NPR Praise for Derek Walcott: "No poet rivals Mr. Walcott in humor, emotional depth, lavish inventiveness in language or in the ability to express the thoughts of his characters and compel the reader to follow the swift mutations of ideas and images in their minds . . . [His poetry] makes us realize that history, all of it, belongs to us." The New York Times Book Review. Nº de ref. de la librería ABE_book_new_0374125619

Descripción Farrar Straus Giroux, United States, 2014. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 229 x 155 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A collection spanning the whole of Derek Walcott s celebrated, inimitable, essential career He gives us more than himself or a world ; he gives us a sense of infinity embodied in the language. Alongside Joseph Brodsky s words of praise one might mention the more concrete honors that the renowned poet Derek Walcott has received: a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship; the Queen s Gold Medal for Poetry; the Nobel Prize in Literature. The Poetry of Derek Walcott 1948 - 2013 draws from every stage of the poet s storied career. Here are examples of his very earliest work, like In My Eighteenth Year, published when the poet himself was still a teenager; his first widely celebrated verse, like A Far Cry from Africa, which speaks of violence, of loyalties divided in one s very blood; his mature work, like The Schooner Flight from The Star-Apple Kingdom ; and his late masterpieces, like the tender Sixty Years After, from the 2010 collection White Egrets. Across sixty-five years, Walcott grapples with the themes that have defined his work as they have defined his life: the unsolvable riddle of identity; the painful legacy of colonialism on his native Caribbean island of St. Lucia; the mysteries of faith and love and the natural world; the Western canon, celebrated and problematic; the trauma of growing old, of losing friends, family, one s own memory. This collection, selected by Walcott s friend the English poet Glyn Maxwell, will prove as enduring as the questions, the passions, that have driven Walcott to write for more than half a century.
