Best New African Poets 2016 Anthology has 251 pieces from 131 poets and artists in 7 languages (English, Portuguese, French, Afrikaans, Shona, Yoruba and Kiswahili) from 24 African countries and Diasporas, with South African and Angolan poets dominating the list. We also have a healthy number of poets from Uganda, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Moçambique, Ghana, and Nigeria, as usual. The nationalist sense is the one that most predominates with its pink, blue and gray tints that are expressed in parallel with existentialist perspectives that in turn go hand in hand with love, desire, hankering, joy, sensuality that transports us to epic, lyrical, utopian contexts without being lost in fantasy, they are artistic lines sometimes with traditional and sometimes more innovative touches. However, in contrast and to a lesser extent, almost as if there were resistant and with restraint we also find desolation, pain, negation that can be so sweet or so bitter that it allows the imagination to stop in a lament or end in resignation.

In the jungle of Burma, a tribe of the Zomi ethnic group lives modestly and peacefully. Thazama is a young, intrepid Zomi who loves hunting and playing games with his friend Moonpi and is secretly in love with the beautiful Kim. But the Burmese revolution of 1988 and the ensuing bloodbath changes everything, making them hostages in their own country. Military forces impose themselves on the people, demanding food and rations, men and women, many of whom will never return. Thazama knows that his destiny is to fight for freedom, and, along with Moonpi, he passes his initiation into adulthood and is given a tattoo of the tiger, symbol of independence and resistance. The two young heroes leave their mountain home and head to the great city of Mandalay, but Thazama himself is on a road of no return. He is set to begin a harrowing journey through Southeast Asia from country to country, further and further from his home.

The French Song Companion is the most comprehensive book of French melodie in any language. The great accompagnist Graham Johnson, a noted authority of song, provides repertoire guides to the work of some 150 composers - the majority of them from France, but including British, American,German, Spanish, and Italian musicians who have written French vocal music. There are major articles on such figures as Faure, Duparc, Debussy, Ravel, and Poulenc; substantial articles on Bizet, Chabrier, Gounod, Chausson, Hahn, and Satie; and reassessments of such composers as Massenet, Koechlin,and Leguerney. A host of less celebrated figures who have contributed to the genre take their place in a book which is both informative and entertaining.The biographical articles are supplemented by the song translations of Richard Stokes, some 700 in all, and a veritable treasury of great French poetry from the fifteenth to the twentieth centuries. These stand in their own right as indispensable to music lovers, concert-goers, and professionalsingers and their accompanists. This is a book which not only reflects the repertoire as found in today's concert halls, but also encourages performers and armchair enthusiasts to explore the neglected highways and biways of an endlessly fascinating and highly civilised body of music.

An Anthology of Verse and Prose

Category: Literary Collections
First published in 1914, this book contains selections, in poetry and prose, from French Romantic writers. These selections serve to illustrate the theories put forward in a companion volume, The Romantic Movement in French Literature (1910). As a general rule, verse pieces are included in their entirety, although an exception is made in the case of a well-known passage from Victor Hugo's 'Réponse ... un acte d'accusation'. Prose selections are generally extracts from larger pieces, although two complete stories are included from Balzac and Mérimée. All selections are presented in the original French. This carefully compiled text will be of value to anyone with an interest in French literature and Romanticism.
These poems are written with a lot of emotion and passion. Some of them talk about relationships, religions, one's beliefs, and most especially love. The author wants his word to be read by people who feel the same emotions he had when he wrote his poetry.
The Eyes of the Night is a true garland of flowers, a work of maturity largely inspired by the poets attachment to nature, emotion, his vocation to humanity, and the collective well-being. In The Eyes of the Night, the poet-philosopher portrays this passion of writing with passion, sensibility, and depth. Eli Fleurant was listed in the publication, Whos Who in America 2010.
