The fourth chapter of an ongoing poetic journey, which began with ""Shattered Images,"" and continued with ""The Problem With Revolution,"" and ""Sooner or Later, They'll Turn on You!"" As Karl Marx famously said: ""The Road to Hell is paved with good intentions."" Indeed, quite often, over time, the best of intentions eventually yield the most repugnant of results, such as the unfortunate tendency for many progressive social movements to eventually mutate into little more than crude instruments of revenge...

Every poem like a new geometry - of surprises. A strange voice of cat's cradles in a Kafkaesque half-light- very strange and unpredictable.' TED HUGHES. For more than five decades Anthony Rudolf has been active as translator, critic, editor, and publisher: all in all, an enabler of writers and readers. His own poems come to him gradually, under pressure of real themes and subjects, refined by the disciplines of translation and co-translation. European Hours represents a life's work severely curated. The poems, prose texts and prose poems which make the cut, from 1964 to 2016, are diverse in form, and run parallel to his highly praised volumes of memoirs. George Mackay Brown, reviewing Rudolf in the Scotsman, noted his 'fine exact craftsmanship: no word or syllable wasted, so that each image is stark and true'. Robin Skelton in the Malahat Review spoke of his work as 'witty, precise, beautifully cadenced, and courageously exploratory'. Reflecting on his own influences, Rudolf mentions James Wright, Robert Creeley and Ian Hamilton early on; and later, Central and East European poets including Paul Celan, Miroslav Holub and Vasko Popa, as well as the American Objectivists.

Like yoga before it, mindfulness is now flourishing in every sector of society. It is a buzzword in everything from medicine to the military. Mark Coleman, who has studied and taught mindfulness meditation for decades, draws on his knowledge to not only clarify what mindfulness truly means but also reveal the depth and potential of this ancient discipline. Weaving together contemporary applications with practices in use for millennia, his approach empowers us to engage with and transform the inevitable stress and pain of life, so we can discover genuine peace — in the body, heart, mind, and wider world. While profound and multilayered, the mindfulness teachings Coleman shares have proved effective in a wide variety of settings. From Suffering to Peace will help readers of all kinds access and benefit from the "true promise of mindfulness."

The second half of Andrew Motion's new collection returns to the sequence begun in Laurels and Donkeys, completing a body of work recognised by the Wilfred Owen Poetry Award in 2014. These meditations on combat and the people caught up in it look back to conflicts of the past: to the 'war to end all wars'; to Rupert Brooke on his final journey; to Wilfred Owen at Craiglockhart War Hospital; to Archduke Franz Ferdinand on the day of his fatal shooting. But Motion also depicts the ravages of modern warfare through reported speech, redacted documents, and vivid evocations of place, his plain understatement bringing the magnitude of war home to our own shores. These poems are moving and measured, delicate and clear-eyed, and bear witness to the futility of war and the suffering of those left behind. Elsewhere we find biographies in miniature, dreams and visions, family histories, which in their range of forms and voices consider questions of identity, and character. These are poems of remembrance in which Motion's war poems, all in their own way elegies, find a natural partner. Peace Talks is a wise and compassionate work.

Edited by the National Book Award-winning poet Terrance Hayes, the foremost annual anthology of contemporary American poetry returns: “A ‘best’ anthology that really lives up to its title” (Chicago Tribune). The first book of poetry that Terrance Hayes ever bought was the 1990 edition of The Best American Poetry, edited by Jorie Graham. Hayes was then an undergrad at a small South Carolina college. He has since published four highly honored books of poetry, is a professor of poetry at the University of Pittsburgh, has appeared multiple times in the series, and is one of today’s most decorated poets. His brazen, restless poems capture the diversity of American culture with singular artistry, grappling with facile assumptions about identity and the complex repercussions of race history in this country. Always eagerly anticipated, the 2014 volume of The Best American Poetry begins with David Lehman’s “state-of-the-art” foreword followed by an inspired introduction from Terrance Hayes on his picks for the best American poems of the past year. Following the poems is the apparatus for which the series has won acclaim: notes from the poets about the writing of their poems.

One of The New York Times' 10 Favorite Poetry Books of 2014 National Book Critics Circle Award Finalist A searing new collection from one of our country's most important poets Memories mercies mostly aren't but there were I swear days veined with grace —from "Memory's Mercies" Once in the West, Christian Wiman's fourth collection, is as intense and intimate as poetry gets—from the "suffering of primal silence" that it plumbs to the "rockshriek of joy" that it achieves and enables. Readers of Wiman's earlier books will recognize the sharp characterizations and humor—"From her I learned the earthworm's exemplary open-mindedness, / its engine of discriminate shit"—as well as his particular brand of reverent rage: "Lord if I implore you please just please leave me alone / is that a prayer that's every instant answered?" But there is something new here, too: moving love poems to his wife, tender glimpses of his children, and, amid the onslaughts of illness and fear and failures, "a trace / of peace."

The first two sections of this book, Poems and Pretty and the Rascals, were written by the author in 1982 and 1983. The Humorous and the Melancholy was written in 2014. The other three works and the additional poems were all written in 2015. I started writing poems in 1982 because of panic attacks and because I wanted to reach out and touch someone, as the saying goes. This publishing effort, which is financed by me, is an additional effort to reach out to people. My poems are pretty poems, humorous poems, and spiritual poems primarily. The original work was compiled into booklets. The six booklets I compiled and had printed out, ten to fifteen poems to a booklet, were as follows: Poems, by William T. Elliott The Pretty and the Rascals, Poems by William T. Elliott The Humorous and the Melancholy, Poems by William T. Elliott A War of Love, Poems by William T. Elliott Peace, Poems by William T. Elliott Reverence, Poems by William T. Elliott Since he had completed the last set, Reverence, the author had finished six more poems, which are in the section "Additional Poems."

Armando Hazaveh presents a collection of poems inspired by art, daily life activities, nature, humor, and the hope for peace. Do You See the Roses? Do you see the roses? Inhale their sickly sweet perfumes. Grasp their lush, silky petals and their piercing thorns. Do you watch them hour by hour, in silence, as they wait for an unsuspecting victim to puncture? Tick tock, tick. Tick tock, tick. Their time is growing scarce. Do you spy the midnight sparrows? Catch their fierce battle cries. Sniff the rotting decay of their aching souls. Do you watch them wither slowly before death reaches out and snatches them in its cold, dark fingers? Tick tock, Tick. Their time is running out. Do you behold the trees? Evade their colorless leaves? Take in their sacred whispers swept away by the never-ending breeze. Watch them sway at the strike of an axe, before tumbling down with a deadly finality. Tick tock. Their time is trickling by. Do you perceive the apples? Taste the deadly poison within. Ignore the rotten portion in a crumpled heap beneath your feet. Do you watch them wither, turning black within until their once fresh, juicy core has gone dry? Tick. Their time has almost gone. Do you see the humans? Taste the blood lingering in the frosty silence. Hear the rustle of fabric as they turn against each other? Do you watch them drive their companions to death with their cruelties strung up like a banner of pride? Silence. Their time has passed.

There can be no area of human experience that has generated a wider range of powerful feelings than war. Jon Stallworthy's classic anthology spans centuries of human experience of conflict, from David's Lament for Saul and Jonathon, and Homer's Iliad to the finest poems of the First and Second World Wars, and beyond. The roll-call of writers is huge - more than 150 celebratory 'war-songs' to the twentieth century's darker poetic responses to 'man's inhumanity to man'. Here are Virgil and Chaucer, Spenser and Donne, Marvell and Dryden; Coleridge, Shelley, and Browning; Hugo, Whitman, and Rike, as well as the whole sweep of twentieth-century writers. Ten years on from the first edition, Jon Stallworthy has now included more poems on the wars of the twentieth century. The 42 additional poems include works by David Harsent, Anthony Hecht, Miroslav Holub, John Jarmain, Stanley Kunitz, Michael Longley, Czeslaw Milosz, Andrew Motion, and Patrick Shaw-Stewart.

Ko Un has long been a living legend in Korea, both as a poet and as a person. Allen Ginsberg once wrote, 'Ko Un is a magnificent poet, combination of Buddhist cognoscente, passionate political libertarian, and naturalist historian.' Maninbo (Ten Thousand Lives) is the title of a remarkable collection of poems by Ko Un, filling thirty volumes, a total of 4001 poems containing the names of 5600 people, which took 30 years to complete. Ko Un first conceived the idea while confined in a solitary cell upon his arrest in May 1980, the first volumes appeared in 1986, and the project was completed 25 years after publication began, in 2010. Unsure whether he might be executed or not, he found his mind filling with memories of the people he had met or heard of during his life. Finally, he made a vow that, if he were released from prison, he would write poems about each of them. In part this would be a means of rescuing from oblivion countless lives that would otherwise be lost, and also it would serve to offer a vision of the history of Korea as it has been lived by its entire population through the centuries. A selection from the first 10 volumes of Maninbo relating to Ko Un's village childhood was published in the US in 2006 by Green Integer under the title Ten Thousand Lives. This edition is a selection from volumes 11 to 20, with the last half of the book focused on the sufferings of the Korean people during the Korean War. Essentially narrative, each poem offers a brief glimpse of an individual's life. Some span an entire existence, some relate a brief moment. Some are celebrations of remarkable lives, others recall terrible events and inhuman beings. Some poems are humorous, others are dark commemorations of unthinkable incidents. They span the whole of Korean history, from earliest pre-history to the present time.
