As for Love : Poems and Translations
M. L. Rosenthal's sixth book focuses on memory and revery, and on 'our fragile, suffering, passionate, murdering race'. The volume rings many tonal changes, from the purely comic to the satiric, and from these to the most varied shades of lyrical expression. Translations from the Catalan of J.V. Foix, the German of Rainer Maria Rilke, and the Chinese of Zhao Ruihong form an integral part of the volume's structure of feeling.
