Treasury of American Poetry, edited by Allen Mandelbaum and Robert D. Richardson. This is a complete re-setting and re-design of my earlier anthology (with A. M. notes) edited with Robert D. Richardson.
Random House—Bantam Books has just completely reset and redesigned five of Allen Mandelbaum’s principal translations: Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso of Dante with facing text, introductions, the Odyssey of Homer.
For W. Norton, completely vetted and then compiled and signed Norton’s public announcement of their publication of Robert Alter’s translation of the Pentateuch---with full commentary.
Gale Press is now republishing---in 2004---my Cornell U. Press edition of the Selected Poems of Giuseppe Ungaretti. For this new edition I have just added to my earlier preface.
