Book Description
An important voice in the “Third Generation” of contemporary Chinese poets—younger poets whose work emerged beginning in the late 1980s—Yang Ke has influenced his country’s literary culture for more than three decades. As the first English-language collection of his poems, Two Halves of the World Apple introduces readers to a prolific and accessible writer at the forefront of Chinese poetry today. Rendered in English translations that deftly capture Yang Ke’s lyrical and idiomatic style, the 73 poems in this volume reflect the depth, breadth, and evolution of the poet’s work. Yang Ke’s poems, praised by literary critics for their use of clear, distinctive language and linguistic and poetic texture, pair arresting imagery with pointed social commentary. Moving across the landscape of classical and modern Chinese poetry, they engage with the natural, social, and moral complexities of the everyday modern world, from evocative portrayals of South China’s Zhuang minority culture to stark, personal depictions of the consequences of globalization. In this imaginative outpouring, the East and the West become two halves of an apple—“a ball struck by God’s bat,” spinning through the cosmos—“yin and yang fish chasing each other’s tails.” Thoughtfully annotated by lead translator Denis Mair and with a foreword by Jonathan Stalling, this collection of poems showcases the best work of one of the leading lights of China’s contemporary literary scene.

Book Description
Republic of Apples, Democracy of Oranges presents nearly 100 poets and translators from China and the U.S.—the two countries most responsible for global carbon dioxide emissions and the primary contributors to extreme climate change. These poetic voices express the altered relationship that now exists between the human and non-human worlds, a situation in which we witness everyday the ways environmental destruction is harming our emotions and imaginations. “What can poetry say about our place in the natural world today?” ecologically minded poets ask. “How do we express this new reality in art or sing about it in poetry?” And, as poet Forrest Gander wonders, “how might syntax, line break, or the shape of the poem on the page express an ecological ethics?” Eco-poetry freely searches for possible answers. Sichuan poet Sun Wenbo writes: ... I feel so liberated I start writing about the republic of apples and democracy of oranges. When I see apples have not become tanks, oranges not bombs, I know I've not become a slave of words after all. The Chinese poets are from throughout the PRC and Taiwan, both minority and majority writers, from big cities and rural provinces, such as Liangshan Yi Autonomous Prefecture and Xinjiang Uyghur, Tibet, and Inner Mongolia Autonomous Regions. The American poets are both emerging and established, from towns and cities across the U.S. Included are images by celebrated photographer Linda Butler documenting the Three Gorges Dam, on the Yangtze River, and the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, on the Mississippi River Basin.

Book Description
The intent and purpose of this book is to successfully gather and present the authentic messages of the two Kremansk prophets, Milosh and Mitar Tarabic, as they told them. Born in a remote mountain village of Kremno, beneath the mountain Tara, these two humble illiterate peasants had practically no elementary knowledge of history or geography. They were nevertheless able to foretell all the important events occurring in the nineteenth century during which they lived, as well as events not occurring until the twentieth century. They also had messages pertaining to the events that are yet to happen in the distant future. They didn't speak in riddles as other prophets did. They never made it a dilemma about what would happen, or even when or how. Their messages were timely, precise and chronologically correct. The Tarabics received their messages from an unknown source. Their Godfather, the priest, Zachary Zacharic, preserved them by writing them down. The process was long and tedious and it took years to gather them. The manuscripts had originally been hidden and were finally uncovered and compiled by Father Zachary's grandson, Dejan Malenkovic with whose help this book was finally written. Even though this book deals with unusual and fascinating events, the authors are not attempting to explain them, nor are they discussing man's secret and unusual, supernatural knowledge. As non-scientists we are not capable of explaining something that mankind has not been able to explain since the age of antiquity. We just wrote what we found and time will tell whether a phenomenon scientifically unexplainable is also nonexistent. Dragoljub Golubovic 1987

Modernism and Phenomenology

Book Description
Braiding together strands of literary, phenomenological and art historical reflection, Modernism and Phenomenology explores the ways in which modernist writers and artists return us to wonder before the world. Taking such wonder as the motive for phenomenology itself, and challenging extant views of modernism that uphold a mind-world opposition rooted in Cartesian thought, the book considers the work of modernists who, far from presenting perfect, finished models for life and the self, embrace raw and semi-chaotic experience. Close readings of works by Paul Cézanne, Gertrude Stein, Franz Kafka, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Wallace Stevens, Paul Klee, and Virginia Woolf explore how modernist texts and artworks display a deep-rooted openness to the world that turns us into "perpetual beginners." Pushing back against ideas of modernism as fragmentation or groundlessness, Mildenberg argues that this openness is less a sign of powerlessness and deferred meaning than of the very provisionality of experience.
