Complete Poems

A sterling poet, if ever one sang.
— Herman Melville

The Complete Poems


For the first time, the complete poems of James Thomson (B. V.) appear together in a single volume, arranged according to the poet's intentions. This edition includes Thomson's terrifying classic "The City of Dreadful Night," his wonderful translations of Heine and Béranger, the powerful unpublished piece "I Had a Love," and much more.

This is the only complete edition of Thomson's poetry. It includes the three books he prepared for publication himself—The City of Dreadful Night (1880), Vane's Story (1881), and A Voice from the Nile (1884)—followed by thirty years of uncollected verse arranged chronologically. This edition also reprints for the first time Thomson's many fragments of verse translation which he wrote for reviews of Goethe and others, and the complete version of "The Pilgrimage to Saint Nicotine" along with an annotated illustration.

California natives Petra Frenkel and Gordon Byun are passionate about pickles. Gordon was raised on a steady diet of kimchi in a traditional Korean family. Helping his mom make the spice mixture and prepare the vegetables, he learned from the best. Petra blames her pickle obsession on her parents who migrated to SoCal from New York. Dissatisfied with the L.A. pickle ecosystem, her parents made kosher pickles at home. Petra became a bit of a pickle-snob, but thinks that everyone should eat delicious things, so it’s really more of an egalitarian snobbery.
