5 Wolak, Bill & Karimi-Hakak, Mahmood Love Emergencies: Poems in English and Persian
Merrick, New York, USA Cross-Cultural Communications 2010 0893044806 / 978-0-89304-480-0 First Hard Cover New Poetry Stefan Jamiokowski 
"'Love Emergencies' evolved as an experiment in translation in which we sought to communicate our most intimate thoughts and feelings across language and culture without footnotes. . . . Although sealed in language on the page, these poems are seldom content to yield to their own limitations. Instead, they are always straining to reach beyond language into the turmoil of actual experience, where, as in a real emergency, when everything is at stake, language gets left behind and the body takes over—waving goodbye, touching a hand, opening into an embrace." —Bill Wolak & Mahmood Karimi-Hakak

7 Addolorato, Annelisa Translated by Maria Bennett and Bill Wolak My Voice Seeks You: The Selected Poems of Annelisa Addolorato
Merrick, New York, USA Cross-Cultural Communications 2013 0893049905 / 9780893049904 First Hard Cover New Bilingual Poetry Cover design by Steven Frim 
Annelisa Addolorato is a child of her era, or perhaps of the epochal break in which we are living. People en masse dive into cities to suffer the tyranny of products; she, the poet Annelisa Addolorato, moves, traveling from one language to another language, however. Meanwhile, as many try to climb on a ladder of minimal language that could interpret primary needs, she flies in the other face of this situation to elaborate her own writing discipline and style. —Guido Oldani With great wisdom and profundity, the writing of Annelisa Addolorato plays with presence and absence, with the present as such as well as the past. Her visions and intuitions continue to reveal a sensibility which shows a mystical, curious, and appealing focus. —Vivet Valacca Annelisa Addolorato presents here a collection of poems which are bi-floavored. In the first part of her book, the essential and meditative style of haiku prevails; in the second, the “Pompeiian” section, we find instead something closer to prose. The re-construction of Pompeii here recalls the paintings of Lawrence Alma-Tadema, and Annelisa, with these verses, completes her own personal and telluric trip through Italy. —Max Ponte The time for these poems is incalculable, because they reflect the cry of the first century of mankind as well as the howl of the twenty-first. —Bruno Mesa

Bill Wolak's love poems are finely tuned expressions of urgency and desire. They explore the lover's body with expectation on the brink of pleasure. --John Digby What a body of work! "and my eyes, impatient as lightning, / search for your hair / of storm-twisted branches . . . " Wolak's magic & word power has destroyed the last vestiges of puritanism on earth. --Gabriel Rosenstock Like a painter exploring every tone of a single hue patiently and like a singer endeavoring variations of a note in constant motion, Wolak explores the body with words. Reading these poems one realize that without language it would have been impossible to perceive beauty. Who would have believed that fragile flesh has so much of eternity within! --Dileep Jhaveri In these poems the heart pours out longing as a mingling of dream and arousal. The erotic potency of Wolak's love poems evokes a condition that is most profoundly human. --Joan Digby

11 Hafez—Mahmood Karimi-Hakak & Bill Wolak, Translators Your Lover's Beloved: 51 Ghazals by Hafez
Merrick, New York, USA Cross-Cultural Communications 2009 0893041122 / 978-0-89304-112-0 First Hard Cover New Poetry Cover Painting by Kayvan Asgari 
"The colloquial and accessible voice Hakak and Wolak tease out of these ghazals reveals the poet to be passionate, rebellious, and unerringly drunk with the kind of desire found only in Shakespeare's sonnets, or in the best of Shelley or Keats. . . . The emphasis in these translations, however, has been on the quality of language as it makes the transition to English, and on the essential Hafezian voice. Hafez, the lover and seeker of the sublime, comes out in lines which speak personally and immediately." —Naton Leslie
