by Paul Green

A candid, playful, and sometimes bawdy celebration of sex, life, and the city of Eugene, Oregon, The Song of Eugene is an epic poem/memoir written to commemorate author Paul Green’s return to his favorite city in 2002 after a decades-long absence. Erudite and witty, the poem is full of Green’s love of language and the companionship of old friends.

Also included in this volume is a collection of the author’s own translations of selected poems by the nineteenth-century German romantic poet Heinrich Heine and the twentieth-century French poet-activist René Char.
