The Call to
Destroy Nixon

by Pablo Neruda

translated by Chad Sweeney

[F]rom time to time I must be
a bard of public service,
which is to say that
I must give the lumberjack,
the shepherd, the bricklayer, the farm-hand,
the gasfitter or any poor foot soldier,
the power to break free with a clean punch
or to release the madness
like flames from his ears.  








Call me Noah

by Lennart Sjögren

Translated by Göran Malmqvist

“...a magnifi cent poem
...with the language scaled
to the innermost,
Call me Noah occasionally owns
almost self-clarifying clarity.”
—Magnus Bremmer, Svenska Dagbladet  







Earthly Lexicon
Selected Poems and Prose

by Regina Derieva

The Russian poet Regina Derieva
was born in Odessa on the Black Sea,
and enjoyed the shifting rhythms of the sea:
"Water is the ideal apparel. However many times
you get into it, it's the same".  







Unseen Isles and
Other Poems

by Robin Fulton Macpherson

Since 1973 Robin Fulton's home base
has been in Norway and
in the decades since
he has built a solid reputation
as a translator of Scandinavian poets,

Harry Martinson and
Olav H. Hauge.
