The Following Scan Will Last Five Minutes
In The Cancer Journals Audre Lorde wrote, `I do not wish my anger and pain and fear about cancer to fossilise into yet another silence, not to rob me of whatever strength can lie at the core of this experience, openly acknowledged and examined.' Founded on this same principle, The Following Scan Will Last Five Minutes was written in the three months following Dutch writer Lieke Marsman's cancer diagnosis. A series of short poems anchored by an essay that speaks directly to Lorde's journal entries and personal reflections on cancer, Marsman considers, among other things, the state of contemporary Dutch politics and - via Susan Sontag's Illness as Metaphor - the rhetoric surrounding her disease. A work of poetry, social criticism and autobiography, The Following Scan is an honest and dryly comic account of a period in the author's life that elides pretension in search of autonomy and self-knowledge. Beautifully translated by the poet Sophie Collins, the book also includes a translator's note in the form of a letter to her author and friend.

You with Hands More Innocent: Selected Poems of Vesna Parun
Vesna Parun was born in 1922 on the island of Zlarin, on the Dalmatian coast of Croatia. She made her literary debut in 1947 with the collection of poems, Zore i vihori (Dawns and Hurricanes), and over the next 60 years went on to publish more than twenty books of poetry, as well as essays, criticism, and children's books. And, although Croatian lyrical is a strong and fruitful tradition, until Vesna Parun it did not know a single female poet with such developed sensibilities and poetic expressiveness: Parun's modus vivendi was it is love that makes and keeps us human. And while there are many poets in Croatian literature who have written collections of love poetry, about love of a woman as an object, here we have poems about love with a woman as subject.The poems in this bilingual Croatina/English edition are deeply moving, and great examples of language that exposes Eastern European culture to the English-speaking world - a volume that captures the feeling, essence, rhythm, and depth of the author's words as best as English can through superb translations side-by-side the original language texts.

Final Matters: Selected Poems, 2004-2010
An award-winning translator presents selections from the haunting final volumes of a leading voice in contemporary Hungarian poetry Szil rd Borb ly, one of the most celebrated writers to emerge from post-Communist Hungary, received numerous literary awards in his native country. In this volume, acclaimed translator Ottilie Mulzet reveals the full range and force of Borb ly's verse by bringing together generous selections from his last two books, Final Matters and To the Body. The original Hungarian text is set on pages facing the English translations, and the book also features an afterword by Mulzet that places the poems in literary, historical, and biographical context. Restless, curious, learned, and alert, Borb ly weaves into his work an unlikely mix of Hungarian folk songs, Christian and Jewish hymns, classical myths, police reports, and unsettling accounts of abortions. In her afterword, Mulzet calls this collection a blasphemous and fragmentary prayer book ... that challenges us to rethink the boundaries of victimhood, culpability, and our own religious and cultural definitions.

An English Anthology
`I was born in Belgium, I'm Belgian. / But Belgium was never born in me.' So writes Leonard Nolens in `Place and Date', which captures a mood of political and social disillusionment amid a generation of Dutch-speaking Belgians. And throughout this selection we encounter a poet engaged with the question of national identity. Frequently the poet moves into that risky terrain, the firstperson plural, in which he speaks as and for a generation of Flemings, embodying an attitude towards artistic and political commitment that he considers its defining mark. `We curled up dejectedly in the spare wheel of May sixtyeight', he writes in the selection's central sequence `Breach'. Nolens' poetry is haunted by giants of twentieth-century European lyricism, by Rilke, Valery, Neruda, Mandelstam and Celan, with whom he has arguably more affinity than with much poetry from the Dutch-language canon.
