Titel: Poems of the American West

Sprache: Englisch.
Herausgegeben von Robert Mezey
EVERYMANS LIBRARY

September 2002 - gebunden - 256 Seiten

In this provocative and thoughtful anthology, many voices join in illuminating the remarkably vast and varied American West. The verse collected here ranges from American Indian tribal poems to old folk songs like "The Streets of Laredo,” from country-western lyrics to the work of such foreign poets as Bertolt Brecht and Zbigniew Herbert. Here is the West in all its rich variety-the harsh life of farms and ranches; man's destructive invasion into forest and desert solitudes; the bars and bistros of San Francisco and Hollywood; Pacific surf and endless highways; the ghost towns, the poverty, and the legendary world of cowpunchers and gunslingers.

From Robert Frost's "Once by the Pacific” to Charles Bukowski's "Vegas,” from Fred Koller's "Lone Star State of Mind” to Thom Gunn's "San Francisco Streets”-the West is evoked in all its incarnations, both actual and mythic.
