When Viking published Borgess Collected Fictions last September, the book received nationwide acclaim. Richard Bernstein in The New York Times hailed the publication as an event, and cause for celebration. The celebration continues this April with the next installment in Vikings projected three-volume set of the Collected Work: a new selection of Borgess finest poems edited by Alexander Coleman.<P>Selected Poems brings together some two hundred poems -- the largest collection of Borgess poetry ever assembled in English, including many never previously translated. The selection draws from a lifetimes work -- from Borgess earliest work in the 20s, his debut Fervor de Buenos Aires (1923), to his final poetic work, Los Conjurados (1985). Throughout the volume, the brilliance of the Spanish originals is matched with luminous English versions rendered by a remarkable cast of translators, among them W. S. Merwin, John Updike, Robert Fitzgerald, Mark Strand and Alastair Reid.
