The Collected Poems PDF Î The Collected PDF \

The Collected Poems For the centennial of Swann s Way the most complete volume of Proust s poetry ever assembled, in a gorgeous deluxe edition As a young man, Proust wrote both poetry and prose Even after he embarked on his masterful In Search of Lost Time at the age of thirty eight, he never stopped writing poetry His verse is often playful, filled with affection and satire, and is peppered with witty barbs at friends and people in his social circle of aristocrats, writers, musicians, and courtesans Few of the poems collected here under the editorship of Harold Augenbraum, founder of the Proust Society of America, have ever been published in book form or translated into English until now In this dual language edition of new translations, Augenbraum has brought together nineteen renowned poets and poetry translators to bring Proust s exuberant verse back to life

    I read this because it looked quick and I LOVE Proust It s over 380 pages, but it s dual language I sometimes would look over to the French, but I wish I knew French The English side was okay writing, some translations felt off Proust wasn t a good poet Dare I say maybe if he wrote longer poems they would be a little better.When to read this Don t make this your firs

    This volume begins with a full throated paean to pederasty, entitled Pederastie Thereafter, we get lots of first world rhapsodies and odes to important artists like Paulus Potter, Christoph Gluck and one poem being insufficient, we get two about Albert Cuyp Okay, so its dated and self absorbed, but the poetry itself, my friends, is absolute shit In French and English.

    When this book jumped out at me At the bookstore last week, I was immediately intrigued by its rough appearance Flipping open to the poem Sonnet, I knew I had to read this book After getting it home I did wish I would have examined it further I loved the poems They did what poems should do, I feel, have movement , have life, make you think, or completely make zero sense T

    Impressively bad If anything, Proust s early poems and short stories give me a strange sort of hope if the author of Proust s early work could become the author ofla recherche, then the human spirit can accomplish anything.
