Air Mail is a comic anthology of letters that demonstrates how one man bamboozled and exasperated over forty international airlines, from British Airways to Air Malta. It tackles everything from the common bugbears of excess baggage charges and duplicitous exchange rates to the more surreal predicament of how to fly an elephant back from India. 1963年 特朗斯特罗默注意到诗人詹姆斯·赖特在罗伯特·布莱创办的 六十年代 杂志上发表的几首诗作 并有意翻译 他给赖特的去信四个月后才得到一个客套而冷淡的答复 反而是布莱给了他热情的回应 两人的通信从此开始 从一开始的客套拘礼到后来的真诚亲密 两人通信近三十年 交流诗歌创作与翻译之道 更彼此传递友谊 在地球的两端为彼此的文学世界开辟天地
The collected poems of one of the world's greatest living writers, Tomas Transtromer, available in this comprehensive edition. In day's first hours consciousness can grasp the world as the hand grips a sun-warmed stone. Translated into fifty languages, the poetry of Tomas Transtromer has had a profound influence around the world, an influence that has steadily grown and has now attained a prominence comparable to that of Pablo Neruda's during his lifetime. But if Neruda is blazing fire, Transtromer is expanding ice. The Great Enigma: New Collected Poems gathers all the poems Tomas Transtromer has published, from his distinctive first collection in 1954, 17 Poems, through his epic poem Baltics ("my most consistent attempt to write music"), and The Sad Gondola, published six years after he suffered a debilitating stroke in 1990 ("I am carried in my shadow / like a violin / in its black case."), to his most recent slim book, The Great Enigma, published in Sweden in 2004. Also included is his prose-memoir Memories Look at Me, containing keys into his intensely spiritual, metaphysical poetry (like the brief passage of insect collecting on Runmaro Island when he was a teenager). Firmly rooted in the natural world, his work falls between dream and dream; it probes "the great unsolved love" with the opening up, through subtle modulations, of "concrete words."
Robert Bly, a longtime friend and confidant of Transtromer's, as well as one of his first translators, has carefully chosen and translated the finest of Transtromer's poems to create this cherished and invaluable collection.
Tomas Tranströmer's touching memoir. Written a few years after Transtromer suffered a stroke that left him unable to speak, Memories Look at Me is Tomas Tranströmer's lyrical autobiography about growing up in Sweden. His story opens with a streak of light, a comet that becomes a brilliant metaphor for "my life" as he tries to penetrate the earliest, formative memories of his past. This childhood life unfolds itself slowly in eight glistening chapters that gradually reveal the most secret of treasures: how Tranströmer discovered poetry.
