A Mind Apart: Poems of Melancholy, Madness, and Addiction

"Much madness is divinest sense," wrote Emily Dickinson, "And much sense the starkest madness." The idea that poetry and madness are deeply intertwined, and that madness sometimes leads to the most divine poetry, has been with us since antiquity. In his critical and clinical introduction to this splendid anthology--the first of its kind--psychiatrist and poet Mark S. Bauer considers mental disorders from multiple perspectives and challenges us to broaden our outlook.

Sonnets: 150 Contemporary Sonnets

The Sonnet is one of the distinguishing cultural markers of western civilization. Throughout our literary past, the sonnet has been used by our greatest poets--from Petrarch and Shakespeare to Borges and Auden. Now, in the twenty-first century, after a period of general dismissal in the latter decades of the twentieth century, the sonnet is in the midst of an extraordinary revival and has once again returned to the center of the literary landscape.
