Selected Poems

Лицевая обложка
Viking, 1999 - Всего страниц: 477
When Viking published Borges's Collected Fictions last September, the book received nationwide acclaim. Richard Bernstein in The New York Times hailed the publication as "an event, and cause for celebration." The celebration continues this April with the next installment in Vikings projected three-volume set of the Collected Work: a new selection of Borges's finest poems edited by Alexander Coleman.

Selected Poems brings together some two hundred poems -- the largest collection of Borges's poetry ever assembled in English, including many never previously translated. The selection draws from a lifetime's work -- from Borges's earliest work in the 20s, his debut Fervor de Buenos Aires (1923), to his final poetic work, Los Conjurados (1985). Throughout the volume, the brilliance of the Spanish originals is matched with luminous English versions rendered by a remarkable cast of translators, among them W. S. Merwin, John Updike, Robert Fitzgerald, Mark Strand and Alastair Reid.

This was a very decent of poems by the skilled Borges. The topics, and style, ranges widely and this is one of the collection's great strengths. The subject matter is deep, inspiring, and sophisticated. It was a good read. 3.5 stars. Читать весь отзыв
