The Voyage and other versions of poems by Baudelaire

£18.99

Product description

The Voyage and other versions of poems by Baudelaire, by Robert Lowell. Illustrated by Sidney Nolan.

Robert Lowell's "The Voyage" is a splendid new presentation of old poems. These versions of 14 poems by Baudelaire appeared among Lowell's translations of a number of poets in his Imitations of 1958. The significance of The Voyage lies both in the accompanying paintings by Sidney Nolan and the exclusive selection of the Baudelaire imitations. The paintings and poetry are of equal importance and - as Lowell describes them - "absolutely welded together". Nolan redefines and enlarges Lowell's vision of Baudelaire's inspiration. His paintings are not illustrations for Baudelaire, but for specific lines of the Lowell text. Nolan's and Lowell's concentration on Baudelaire seems explainable in terms of sympathy with the French poet's sense of frustration, search for meaning, and social concern. (Source: The Harvard Crimson)

Very good condition, 1961 hardback edition, with few marks on pages. Dust jacket, however, in poor condition with tears and marks (price lowered to reflect this).
