An enchanting collection of the very best of Russian poetry, edited by acclaimed translator Robert Chandler together with poets Boris Dralyuk and Irina Mashinski. In the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, poetry's pre-eminence in Russia was unchallenged, with Pushkin and his contemporaries ushering in the 'Golden Age' of Russian literature. Prose briefly gained the high ground in the second half of the nineteenth century, but poetry again became dominant in the 'Silver Age' (the early twentieth century), when belief in reason and progress yielded once more to a more magical view of the world. During the Soviet era, poetry became a dangerous, subversive activity; nevertheless, poets such as Osip Mandelstam and Anna Akhmatova continued to defy the censors. This anthology traces Russian poetry from its Golden Age to the modern era, including work by several great poets - Georgy Ivanov and Varlam Shalamov among them - in captivating modern translations by Robert Chandler and others. The volume also includes a general introduction, chronology and individual introductions to each poet. Robert Chandler is an acclaimed poet and translator. His many translations from Russian include works by Aleksandr Pushkin, Nikolay Leskov, Vasily Grossman and Andrey Platonov, while his anthologies of Russian Short Stories from Pushkin to Buida and Russian Magic Tales are both published in Penguin Classics. Irina Mashinski is a bilingual poet and co-founder of the StoSvet literary project. Her most recent collection is 2013's Ophelia i masterok [Ophelia and the Trowel]. Boris Dralyuk is a Lecturer in Russian at the University of St Andrews and translator of many books from Russian, including, most recently, Isaac Babel's Red Cavalry (2014).

Chester Skotak's SEARCHING FOR MISS FORTUNA...The Hunt for a Bromeliad-is a NOVEL inspired by true events. After shelling out thousands of dollars in a cutthroat auction for one small but captivating plant, an unbridled frenzy drives The Man from Florida into a blind rush to gather more of those beauties from their hidden rainforest habitat. He hires a happy-go-lucky free spirit from Costa Rica as guide and translator, and races off to the Panamanian wilderness to hunt down the "goddesses from Fortuna." Two polar opposites don't mix well cooped up in a jeep searching the back roads of paradise for a rare botanical treasure. Juju magic comes along for the ride and crazy things begin to happen. The mischievous guide is the irreverent narrator of this weird story-touching on obsession, vanity, and bruised egos-unfolding mostly in Central America, where the unexpected flourishes and multiplies. As you delve into this quirky world, offbeat characters will bombard you with surprises. A singing cow tick, a zombie-like woman in a tropical ski chair, a flying toupee, and a tongue-tied fruit lover are merely hints of the maze of "bizarro" you'll encounter. So go ahead, turn the pages and learn a slew of lessons on why you should be choosy about traveling companions when journeying into the unknown. Between the laughs and the gasps, feel free to wonder if all of this really happened. Maybe it did or maybe it didn't, but the perplexing enigma remains: Nothing can become truth until it's in writing. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Chester Skotak is a world-renowned bromeliad hybridizer with a sharp sense of humor. He has led numerous plant collecting expeditions throughout Central and South America and has introduced countless unusual bromeliad hybrids into horticulture. Three plant species have been named in his honor. He was born in Texas and escaped to Costa Rica in 1978.

In a groundbreaking work of ÒNew AmericanistÓ studies, John R. Eperjesi explores the cultural and economic formation of the Unites States relationship to China and the Pacific Rim in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Eperjesi examines a variety of texts to explore the emergence of what Rob Wilson has termed the ÒAmerican Pacific.Ó Eperjesi shows how works ranging from Frank NorrisÕ The Octopus to the Journal of the American Asiatic Association, from the Socialist newspaper Appeal to Reason to the travel writings of Jack and Charmain London, and from Maxine Hong KingstonÕs China Men to Ang LeeÕs Crouching Tiger, Hidden DragonÑand the cultural dynamics that produced themÑhelped construct the myth of the American Pacific. By construing the Pacific Rim as a unified region binding together the territorial United States with the areas of Asia and the Pacific, he also demonstrates that the logic of the imperialist imaginary suggested it was not only proper but even incumbent upon the United States to exercise both political and economic influence in the region. As Donald E. Pease notes in his foreword, Òby reading foreign policy and economic policy as literature, and by reconceptualizing works of American literature as extenuations of foreign policy and economic theory,Ó Eperjesi makes a significant contribution to studies of American imperialism.
