"Forget the orchestra/ conduct the pit!" Clayton Eshleman commands, of both himself and his muses as they search for "the gulf between worlds." Featuring major forces of the surrealist movement such as Rimbaud, Artaud, and Neruda, this fully annotated anthology contains their most essential work --- poems that shaped the modern age --- available side by side for the first time. Carefully chosen background material puts each artist and poem into a cultural and historical context.

Reviews - What do customers think about Conductors of the Pit: Artaud, Holan, Cesaire, Vallejo, Csoori, Breton, Neruda, Radnoti, Rimbaud, Hierro, Bador, Juhasz, Szocs?

Volcanic Poetry  Oct 6, 2007
Clayton Eshleman is a national treasure solely for the fact that he translates poets who are busy about excavating the soul and writing work as if their very lives depended on it. And, of course they do and ours does as well. If you are reading this review and are really seeking work that steps into the psyche of 20th Century humanity, then you need to crawl into this book. The poetry is difficult as all good poetry that pushes us towards self-examination should be. Read Holan's "A Night with Hamlet" and you'll see what I mean.
