Finally, it is here. The first book-length project I'm (at least partially) responsible for is available in a material form. The volume Words into Pictures: E. E. Cummings' Art Across Borders
hit the shelves some time ago. In addition to part of the editing work, there is an essay of mine in the book, I wrote the introduction and the chronology is also my work.
We started working on the volume early in 2006 with my friend and colleague Jiří Flajšar
. A bit more than two years have passed since, and it was worth it. Not only, and not even primarily because there is now a book with my name on the cover, but also because I got to know a lot of friendly and talented scholars in the process, and because the volume -- with all its problems -- is beyond my original expectations. The contributors deserve all the praise and gratefulness for this.
The book is available for ordering through several sites of Amazon (UK
, for example), Blackwell
, as well as the brilliant Estonian Krisostomus
. (Maybe other ones, too, but I have no information about them right now.) More information about the book can be found on the website of Cambridge Scholars Publishing
, our publisher. Where, amongst other things, you can also peep into the book through the sample pages
