Cold Spring in Winter

Valérie Rouzeau

Cold Spring in Winter

These poems, a lament for the poet's dead father in the stammered cadences of an adult and the child she used to be, is strange and compelling, causing a stir when it was first published in 1999. Once familiar with Rouzeau's mixture of baby-talk, slang, puns and coinages, the reader will find this book utterly compelling.

Pro Eto - That's What

Vladimir Mayakovsky

Pro Eto - That's What

Aggressive, mocking, tender, full of anguish and anger yet also grimly humorous, 'Pro Eto - That's What' is part love poem, part political diatribe and the most autobiographical of Mayakovsky's works. This new translation, complete with the extraordinary photomontages that Alexander Rodchenko created for this work, confirms Mayakovsky, 70 years after his death, as one of the towering figures of Russian literature.
