Nhan đề: All for love / Maeve Binchy Số phân loại : 811 M102; Đặc điểm vật lý: 142 p. ; 18 cm
*Tóm tắt : What sad, appalling, and surprising things people do in the name of love and for the sake of love. These short stories give us love won and love lost, love revenged, love thrown away, love in triumph, love in despair. It might be love between men and women, children and parents, even humans and cats; but whichever it is, love is a force to be reckoned with. This collection contains stories by Maeve Binchy, Edith Wharton, Virginia Woolf, James Joyce, H.E. Bates, Graham Greene, Fay Weldon, Patricia Highsmith, John Morrison, and Somerset Maugham .

Nhan đề: The Oxford book of American poetry / chosen and edited by David Lehman ; associate editor, John Brehm Số phân loại : 811.008 D249; Đặc điểm vật lý: lvii, 1132Tr; 24 cm
Tác giả khác: John Brehm
*Tóm tắt : Lehman has gathered together all the works one would expect to find in a landmark collection of American poetry, from Whitman's Crossing Brooklyn Ferry to Stevens's The Idea of Order at Key West, and from Eliot's The Waste Land to Ashbery's Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror. But equally important, the editor has significantly expanded the range of the anthology. The book includes not only writers born since the previous edition, but also many fine poets overlooked in earlier editions or little known in the past but highly deserving of attention .
6002. Tác giả chính: Richard Shelton
Nhan đề: The last person to hear your voice / Richard Shelton Số phân loại : 811.54 S201; Đặc điểm vật lý: 109 p. ; 23 cm
*Tóm tắt : While Shelton has been known primarily for his poems dealing with the landscape of the Southwest and the destruction of that landscape, the poems in this book are much more far-ranging, including many poems dealing with soocial issues (the issue of illegal immigration on our southern border, homelessness), historical events (the war in Iraq, the events of 9/11) and attitudes concerning politics and the environment. The poems are filled with sensory images, engaged in the real world, often ironic or simply off-the-wall, and their tone ranges from deeply sad, as in a requiem for Glen Canyon on the Colorado River, to the wildly funny, as in Brief Communications from My widowed Mother .

6006. Tác giả chính: Stuart Ross
Nhan đề: Farmer Gloomy's new hybrid / Stuart Ross Số phân loại : 811.54 R826; Đặc điểm vật lý: 109 p. ; 20 cm
*Tóm tắt : Featuring a world of darkly comic transmutations, wild flights of paranoia, and even the occasional flash of pure bliss, every piece in this volume—whether it’s about an apocalypse at an abandoned drive-in cinema, a runaway shopping mall that seeks refuge in a small boy’s bedroom, a tourist in Central America who finds his fate in a bowl of murky soup, or a man who transforms into a cartoon mouse before a job interview—is both a provocation and an escalation. In pieces like the collection’s centerpiece, the long-poem “Sitting by the Judas Hole,” the poet continues to challenge our perceptions of everyday banalities. Unique and entertaining, this compelling collection offers a true surrealistic treat .
6007. Tác giả chính: David Shumate
Nhan đề: The floating bridge : prose poems / David Shumate Số phân loại : 811.6 D111; Đặc điểm vật lý: ix, 73 p. ; 22 cm
*Tóm tắt : "Vanquishes once and for all the notion that the prose poem is somehow inherently 'not a real poem.' Exhibits a sustained level of innate lyricism and imagism rarely seen even in conventional lyric free verse. Unfailingly, the little prose jewels in 'The Floating Bridge' exhibit the most fundamental property of fine poems: each whole is many times greater than the sum of its parts."--Cider Press Review"Shumate's collection consists of over 50 gems...each one loaded with the living essence that hovers just beyond rationality's gate. [He] is a master of this forthright form. His book is a key to the room where dreams are stored."--Nuvo"I was deeply taken by David Shumate's The Floating Bridge. There is none better working now at this very difficult genre, the prose poem."--Jim Harrison .
6008. Tác giả chính: Paisley Rekdal
Nhan đề: The invention of the kaleidoscope / Paisley Rekdal Số phân loại : 811.6 R201; Đặc điểm vật lý: 77 p. ; 23 cm
*Tóm tắt : The Invention of the Kaleidoscope is a book of poetic elegies that discuss failures: failures of love, both sexual and spiritual; failures of the body; failures of science, art and technology; failures of nature, imagination, memory and, most importantly, the failures inherent to elegiac narratives and our formal attempt to memoralize the lost. But the book also explores the necessity of such narratives, as well as the creative possibilities implicit within the “failed elegy,” all while examining the various ways that self-destruction can turn into self-preservation .
