CURRENT PROJECTS

Mallarmé's Prose Poems by Robert G. Cohn - a critical study of Mallarmé's prose poems, a crucial but neglected aspect of his oeuvre. These texts represent a vital stage in Mallarmé's evolution as a poet, and exerted a deep influence on a range of twentieth-century artists. The author, an internationally distinguished Mallarmé scholar, discusses each poem in the order of its composition and develops his own striking critical interpretation of the sequence as a whole. In each case the full text and an English translation are provided.

Judeo-Christian Voices: An Anthology of Poetry and Prose - An anthology of writers inspired by the stories and traditions of Judaism and Christianity. The themes and issues developed in these texts engage all aspects of the human situation: truth, faith, beauty, ethics, politics, science, theology, philosophy, good and evil. Chosen by prominent scholars and writers like Rene Girard, Gerald Gillespie, and Robert G. Cohn, the selections for this volume give a comprehensive, in depth introduction and survey of important and admired writers such as: Dante, Goethe, Rilke, Mallarmé, George Eliot, Disraeli, Gerard Manly Hopkins, Isaac Bashevis Singer, T. S. Eliot, and Albert Camus.
