The Voice of Water

Cevat Çapan

The Voice of Water

Çapan's poetry manages to sound ancient and traditional while being firmly rooted in today's world; it is both thoroughly Turkish and at the same time European - and beyond that, part of a greater world literature.

Selected Poems

Georges Rodenbach

Selected Poems

Georges Rodenbach was a leading literary figure during the epoch of symbolism in late nineteenth-century France and Belgium. This is the first-ever collection of Rodenbach's poetry to be published in English translation. He is most famous for his fin-de-siècle novel Bruges-la-Morte (1892), but it is in the lesser-known collections of poetry that his mystical articulation of the ambiance of a decaying Bruges reaches its zenith.

It is no surprise that, after his premature death in 1898, Rodenbach's precise, poignant, delicate yet deceptively muscular poems attracted the likes of Rilke and Proust. These two exceptional diviners of the unacknowledged life secreted within objects and atmospheres, saw in him a fellow explorer, a wholly authentic and uncompromising voice, that articulated an interior landscape of the soul like no other.

It is this voice that English-language readers today can now access through Will Stone's sensitively attuned translation after decades of inexplicable neglect.

Along the quays, beneath the plaintive threnody
of bells, the abandoned water is idle
and flows beneath bridges in silence,
weeping over its grief and inert torments,
lamenting the scattered life that afflicts it...

Georges Rodenbach,
from 'The Water's Heart'

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

It is hard to believe that one man could have had so much influence on the musical life not only of the United Kingdom, but of Europe and beyond. 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.
