Description

"... a beautiful and fulfilling anthology... Poems such as Roque Dalton's 'Tavern' and many others just sing and inspire... " -Ed Sanders

Prague has been the central, if unlikely, subject of some of the most important poetry of the last century. This diverse anthology gathers and translates into English 120 poems from 16 languages written between 1888 and 2010 which describe Prague or an event that took place there, and places those poems in a literary and historical context with a detailed critical introduction, a Prague poetry map and photos of the locations depicted. Intended as a poetic guidebook to the city of Prague for those who live on both sides of its borders, From a Terrace in Prague highlights the effects that literary movements, political beliefs and historic events have had on poets' descriptions of the city.
