By Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Goethes Lyrik ist groß und gewaltig, klein und frech, ernst und witzig, tiefgründig, beiläufig und unerschöpflich. Sie ist das größte Dichtkunst-Universum, das in deutscher Sprache je entstanden ist. Goethes Gedichte sind ein Lebens-Werk im wahrsten Sinn des Wortes, geschrieben über einen Zeitraum von beinahe siebzig Jahren hinweg. Sie lassen sich immer neu erkunden und geben jedes Mal neue Facetten ihres Zaubers und Geheimnisses preis. Das macht mit dieser prächtig ausgestatteten variation besonders viel Freude. Passend zum Inhalt ist diese wunderschöne Geschenk-Ausgabe in edles Iris-Leinen gebunden und mit Goldprägung versehen.

By Charles Bukowski
Poems emerging from and returning to Bukowski's own reviews mirror humans, items, locations, and occasions of the exterior global, and displays on them, on their means out and back.
"Love is a puppy From Hell captures Bukowski's huge expertise for taking pictures a temper and throwing the reader into his global. this can be a great version of recent poetry that completely captures the degenerated angst of the interval. what's quite impressive here's Bukowski's acute expertise of the decay that surrounds him."
"Take off the rose-colored glasses...return your seats to their upright position...place your head among your knees and get ready for a crash touchdown. Don't get me flawed: this ebook isn't a diatribe condemning love. We've all learn and enjoyed our Byron, yet now it's time to step during the having a look glass, teenagers. Love may perhaps "walk in good looks just like the night" yet, "Love, Bukowski Style"...asks you to recollect that "the night" isn't the easiest venue for readability of imaginative and prescient. Bukowski speaks to that different part of love...vitriolic, soul-destroying, perverted, barbaric and insane. All, who've ever enjoyed, will locate the phrases for his or her feelings...the emotions for his or her loss of words... in Bukowski's auto-Eros-dissection. Why might I recommend you learn this quantity of poetry? Why might someone are looking to topic themself to such unpleasantries? what sort of sadist am I, that i'd ask you to intentionally topic your self to the ache of affection? to understand love, is to grasp the discomfort of affection. but for the entire discomfort inherent in love, we search love time and again. not anything routines our presents of desire and religion extra strenuously. Love could be a "dog from hell" to Bukowski, yet he's nonetheless not able to cover his wish, his desire and his desire for extra love. Bukowski - alcoholic, misanthrope, barbarian, gutter rat - who writes of affection and will nonetheless say..."It softens a man."

By James Broughton
This choice of poetry showcases the paintings of "the heartiest and such a lot enthusiastic celebrant on account that Whitman" (Jim Cory). specially, James Broughton delights in pleasures of physique and soul - yet possibly specifically these of the physique - with wit and grace.
As Rain Taxi writes, "Broughton's is a poetry of revelation, no longer obfuscation. . . . each one poem is a party and a decision to offset the putrefaction of complacency with a bit devilishness."
Fifty years of poetry is right here distilled into one fats quantity by means of the West Coast filmmaker most sensible identified for the avant-garde vintage Loony Tom (1951). Wildly indiscriminate, Broughton clings to a grab-bag mysticism all through his occupation, and, like his mentor, Blake, he celebrates innocence in childlike ditties and develops a self-referential mythology thats now and then impenetrable. intentionally archaic, and whole of sing-song repetition, Broughtons fractured nursery rhymes and highway jingles are, at most sensible, the fascinating ephemera of a self-described amorist who later declares, i'm Polly Morphus, as though we didnt understand, what with never-ending verse extolling Nipples and Cocks, the fun of fellatio, and all his different pagan appetites (including knowledgeable ode to the phallus). yet Broughtons boho goofiness, whereas captivating in his early paintings, devolves into regular hippie grooviness (Nourish your bliss). A Whitmanesque catalogue of scenes from outdated L.A. (I take note la) stands proud one of the reams of self-indulgent and facile doggerel.
