Selected Poems

Georges Rodenbach

Selected Poems

This is the first-ever collection of Rodenbach's poetry to be published in English translation. In it, Rodenbach's vision of Bruges, so brilliantly portrayed in his famous symbolist novel, Bruges la Morte, is drawn with even more potency. Using the symbolist devices of suggestion and mood, Rodenbach, in these poems, sifts the elements that make up the decaying Bruges. He sees it as a medieval corpse laid out for him to 'rescue' through his interpretation of its atmosphere of melancholy, its seductive romantic decline and its loneliness. With rare beauty and delicacy, Rodenbach's poetry spins its web of tonal impressionism and seems always to exist on the border of silence.

The Arrow-Maker

D. M. Black

The Arrow-Maker

D.M. Black's sensitive attention to emotional states of mind, sometimes his own, sometimes those of others, also extends to more public themes of war and climate change. As always, his forms are various, but there is a predominance now of poems spoken in a thinking voice that remembers the iambic pentameter without being subdued by it.

No Bartok Before Breakfast: A Musician's Memoir

John Manduell

No Bartok Before Breakfast: A Musician's Memoir

Yet the pages of this delightful memoir reveal the extent to which John Manduell's extraordinary vision, his willingness to venture into unknown territory, his ability to think the unthinkable, his wisdom and his persuasiveness have helped to raise the profile of music in so many areas.
