5 Adair, Virginia Hamilton Ants on the Melon: A Collection of Poems
New York Random House 1996 0679448810 / 9780679448815 Hardcover Very Good+ in Near Fine dust jacket 
Unmarked. ; Book Description; Mylar and paper (Demco) protective cover. Dust jacket is intact with no nicks or tears. Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square and with minor wear. Already singled out by The New York Times and the subject of a feature in The New Yorker, Virginia Adair has, after decades of shunning book publication, decided to collect eighty of her best poems in a volume that will surely be hailed as among the most accomplished works of our time. Ants on the Melon includes poems that concern the author's childhood, that explore sensuality in candid terms, that starkly treat her husband's suicide and her own blindness, and that explore both her own emotional landscape and the universal mysteries of the human condition. Technically brilliant, using strict, classical prosody, yet entirely modern in sensibility, Virginia Adair's poetry will play a central role in the ongoing American poetry renaissance. ; 8.3 x 5.6 x 0.8 inches; 158 pages

7 Aeschylus & Richard Lattimore & David Grene Aeschylus II Four Tragedies
Chicago University of Chicago Press 1969 0226307794 / 9780226307794 Softcover Very Good 
Unmarked. Miled wear on corners. ; Book Description; Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square and with minor wear. The Grene and Lattimore edition of the Greek tragedies has been among the most widely acclaimed and successful publications of the University of Chicago Press. On the occasion of the Centennial of the University of Chicago and its Press, we take pleasure in reissuing this complete work in a handsome four-volume slipcased edition as well as in redesigned versions of the familiar paperbacks. For the Centennial Edition two of the original translations have been replaced. In the original publication David Grene translated only one of the three Theban plays, Oedipus the King. Now he has added his own translations of the remaining two, Oedipus at Colonus and Antigone, thus bringing a new unity of tone and style to this group. Grene has also revised his earlier translation of Prometheus Bound and rendered some of the former prose sections in verse. These new translations replace the originals included in the paperback volumes Sophocles I (which contains all three Theban plays) , Aeschylus II, Greek Tragedies, Volume I, and Greek Tragedies, Volume III, all of which are now being published in second editions. All other volumes contain the translations of the tragedies of Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides for the most part from the original versions first published in the 1940s and 1950s. These translations have been the choice of generations of teachers and students, selling in the past forty years over three million copies. ; Complete Greek Tragedies; 7.80 X 5.20 X 0.20 inches; 178 pages

Probably never been read. Unmarked. ; Book Description; Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are shiny, square and with minor wear. A New Year's feast at King Arthur's court is interrupted by the appearance of a gigantic Green Knight, resplendent on horseback. He challenges any one of Arthur's men to behead him, provided that if he survives he can return the blow a year later. Sir Gawain accepts the challenge and decapitates the knight ? But the mysterious warrior cheats death and vanishes, bearing his head with him. The following winter Gawain sets out to find the Knight in the wild Northern lands and to keep his side of the bargain.

This edition also includes essays discussing the central characters and themes, theories about authorship and Arthurian legends, and suggestions for further reading and notes. ; Penguin Classics; 7.80 X 5.04 X 0.63 inches; 192 pages

17 Anonymous & Glyn S. Burgess The Song of Roland
New York Penguin Classics 1990 0140445323 / 9780140445329 Paperback Very Good 
Book Description; Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are shiny, square and with minor wear. On 15 August 778, Charlemagne's army was returning from a successful expedition against Saracen Spain when its rearguard was ambushed in a remote Pyrenean pass. Out of this skirmish arose a stirring tale of war, which was recorded in the oldest extant epic poem in French. The "Song of Roland", written by an unknown poet, tells of Charlemagne's warrior nephew, Lord of the Breton Marches, who valiantly leads his men into battle against the Saracens, but dies in the massacre, defiant to the end. In majestic verses, the battle becomes a symbolic struggle between Christianity and paganism, while Roland's last stand is the ultimate expression of honour and feudal values of twelfth-century France. ; Penguin Classics; 8.43 X 5.85 X 0.73 inches; 224 pages

Its fifty lucid yet urgent poems range in tone from lyric to ironic to meditative to prophetic, and in subject from the personal to the political, viewed in its broadest sense. They investigate the mysterious writing of poetry itself, as well as the passage of time and our shared sense of mortality. The collection begins with poems that consider the past and ends with harbingers of things to come. Brave and compassionate, The Door interrogates the certainties that we build our lives on. ; 8.9 x 5.9 x 0.6 inches; 120 pages; Ships within 24 hours.
