Описание: <em>Translations from the Flesh</em>, Elton Glaser's seventh full-length collection of poetry, is driven by the powerful engines of love and desire. In poems long and brief, playful and intense, Glaser evokes what it feels like ""to fall into / Love and its infinite mistakes."" In a style that might be described as ""flamboyant stoicism"" (a phrase from Simon Callow,) he explores our human urgencies and weaknesses, following wherever our appetites lead us, whether hormonal or spiritual, cravings that we struggle to understand. The voice that says ""Apprentice me to mysteries of the flesh"" speaks for everyone intent on making sense of the body's restless yearning for fulfilment. These poems, with their witty brio and passionate precision of language, agree with Gerald Stern that ""the brain / is the best organ for love."" At the same time, they are not afraid to get down in the dirt, among the more primitive pleasures. Whatever their bent, from moony aspirations to ""rare positions only the wicked know,"" the poems express Glaser's mission to give voice to those deep pressures that move us, body and soul: ""I put my native tongue / To work, open to / The dark instincts of ecstasy.
This volume offers newly translated texts that exemplify the two most important traditions of Arthurian literature in the Middle Ages. Encompassing such key works such as Lawman's Brut and Wace's Romance of Brut, written in Middle English and Old French, respectively, the Arthurian Epic Tradition depends on Geoffrey of Monmouth's History of the Kings of Britain, written in Latin. Many modern readers are more familiar with Arthur and his fabled court as the centerpiece of a massive fictional tradition, well represented in the second part of this volume, including Chretien de Troyes's Story of the Grail, The Quest of the Holy Grail, and the Perlesvaus. These selections emphasize the connection between secular and religious understandings of chivalry that is the most distinctive quality of medieval Arthurian romance. Useful as a classroom text, the volume provides material for a semester's worth of study. Instructors considering this book for use in a course may request an examination copy here.
