    In the Heart of our Souls Dans...

    VERSION : ENGLISH/ FRANÇAIS 
    In the Heart of our Souls tells the story of the Kingdom of Congo through the eyes of its people. The story is based on previously untold true short stories of the Kingdom of Congo’s descendants. Victoria Ngangu narrates the life of her family and ancestors, starting from her great-grandparents up to her own life in Kinshasa. She explains how their life was, how they met and the kind of people they were. Family is the main subject, as each character is strongly linked to each other, passing on important moral values to each new generation. 
    Victoria’s family is strongly linked to the country of Congo, as one of her ancestors was the King of Congo. With the arrival of the colonists, life changed, and her family lost its royalty. However, values were still kept, especially the one that holds the family as more important than everything else, and that people should help each other in times of need. 
    They learn how each generation lived in their daily lives, and how relations between people worked in the family. Even after losing members of the family, each person is still very strongly linked to another, perhaps even more. 
    Life wasn’t easy, especially for Victoria herself, who lost both of her parents. Her mother died of breast cancer—the disease not being well known in the country at that time—and her father died soon after, inconsolable, having lost his wife. The children ended up alone, and had to take care of themselves without the help of adults, armed only with the values they had been taught. 
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
    Dans le Cœur de Nos Ȃmes raconte l’histoire du peuple du Congo à travers les yeux de son peuple. Victoria Ngangu décrit la vie de sa famille et ancêtres en commençant pas ses arrière-grands-parents jusqu’à sa propre vie à Kinshasa. Elle explique commet leur vie se déroulait, comment ils se sont rencontrés et quelles sortes de personnes ils étaient. La famille est ici le sujet principal, chaque personnage étant fortement liés et transmet d’importantes valeurs morales aux nouvelles générations. 
    La famille de Victoria est fortement liée au pays du Congo, un de ces ancêtres étant le Roi du Congo. Avec l’arrivée des colons, la vie changea et sa famille perdit sa royauté. Cependant, les valeurs ont toujours été perpétrées, spécialement le fait que la famille est plus importante que tout et que les gens doivent s’aider en cas de besoin. 
    Ils apprennent comment chaque comment chaque génération vivait dans des situations quotidiennes et comment les relations entre chacun fonctionnaient dans la famille. Et même après avoir perdu des membres de la famille, chaque personne est toujours très liée, peut-être encore plus. 
    La vie n’était pas facile, en particulier pour Victoria qui perdit ses deux parents. Sa mère mourut d’un cancer du sein – la maladie était peu connue à l’époque dans le pays – et son père mourut plus tard de chagrin, ayant perdu sa femme. Les enfants se retrouvèrent seuls et durent s’occuper d’eux-mêmes sans l’aide des adultes, mais avec les valeurs qu’ils avaient apprises.

    Angina Days - Selected Poems

    Günter Eich

    This is the most comprehensive English translation of the work of Günter Eich, one of the greatest postwar German poets. The author of the POW poem "Inventory," among one of the most famous lyrics in the German language, Eich was rivaled only by Paul Celan as the leading poet in the generation after Gottfried Benn and Bertolt Brecht. Expertly translated and introduced by Michael Hofmann, this collection gathers eighty poems, many drawn from Eich's later work and most of them translated here for the first time. The volume also includes the original German texts on facing pages.
      
     As an early member of "Gruppe 47" (from which Günter Grass and Heinrich Böll later shot to prominence), Eich (1907-72) was at the vanguard of an effort to restore German as a language for poetry after the vitriol, propaganda, and lies of the Third Reich. Short and clear, these are timeless poems in which the ominousness of fairy tales meets the delicacy and suggestiveness of Far Eastern poetry. In his late poems, he writes frequently, movingly, and often wryly of infirmity and illness. "To my mind," Hofmann writes, "there's something in Eich of Paul Klee's pictures: both are homemade, modest in scale, immediately delightful, inventive, cogent."
      
     Unjustly neglected in English, Eich finds his ideal translator here.

    "“Huddle is a source of light in an often gray world.”—Booklist
    “[Huddle’s poetry is] luminous and majestic.”— Philip Deaver, The Southern Review
    An account of spiritual survival through the practice of literary art, the poems in David Huddle’s eighth collection, Dream Sender, move among a variety of poetic forms and voices. Here, a bear wonders why he could not have been a raccoon, a bird, or a meadow; and a five-year-old thrills to the forbidden taste of whiskey as he eavesdrops on his parents’ after-dinner conversation. By turns outrageous and pragmatic, Huddle’s poems acknowledge the powerful and disturbing currents of the contemporary world as they also explore the comfort and familiarity we find there.
    Huddle’s poems illuminate the nature of relationships between family, friends, and even animals, celebrating their shortcomings, embarrassments, and eccentricities. At once frank and compassionate, Dream Sender finds both humor and poignancy in human imperfections.

    This early work of poetry, by Aleister Crowley, was originally published in 1898. Born in Royal Leamington Spa, England in 1875, Crowley was raised by Christian fundamentalist parents. He attended Trinity College at Cambridge University, but left before graduating. After leaving the college, he devoted his time to studying the occult, and travelled extensively throughout the world in persuit of its secret knowledge. He went on to become a prolific writer, producing essays, prose and poetry on a wide range of subjects. To this day he remains a highly influential figure, both in occult circles and popular culture. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions.
