Краткое описание

Prose: The Century Edition.

A former U.S. Poet Laureate as well as the winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award, poet Elizabeth Bishop is not nearly so well known for her prose, yet she was a dazzling and compelling writer. Her stories are often on the borderline of memoir, and vice versa. From her college days, she could find the most astonishing yet thoroughly apt metaphors to illuminate her ideas. This collection, edited by Bishop scholar Lloyd Schwartz, includes virtually all her published shorter prose pieces and a number of works not published until after her death. Here are her famous as well as her lesser-known stories, crucial memoirs, literary and travel essays, book reviews, and her original draft of Brazil, the Time/Life volume she repudiated in its published version."The most exciting part of the Bishop reissue project may be this volume, which contains all of the prose published in her lifetime, as well as a few hard to find things and a thing or two you won't find anywhere else. As a frequent contributor to The New Yorker (the poet's decades-long relationship with the magazine is brought to life in The Complete Correspondence) and other publications, Bishop crafted all kinds of prose, from autobiographical short stories ('In the Village') to loving reminiscences ('Efforts of Affection: A Memoir of Marianne Moore'); she was as original a prose writer as she was a poet, an under-known fact this volume may help solidify once and for all. The real gem of this book is Brazil, a book-length essay on Bishop's adopted homeland, whose published version, which came out as a Time-Life guide, Bishop hated. Here we have her original draft, written in her inimitable style: 'The history of South America in the 19th century resembles Shakespeare's battle scenes: shouts and trumpets; small armies on stage, small armies off stage….' Take that, Lonely Planet!"—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
