About this product
- DescriptionFrom the huddling men in a Rembrandt print to an image in a bathroom mirror that might be Christ or a mere smudge, David Yezzi, with his precisely carved and subtly cutting language, questions and considers the surfaces of our perceptions and the life they conceal-that which suggests, asks, demands to be seen. In this deeply philosophical book, Yezzi deploys a mobile intelligence that reaches from the world of art to the landscape of the mind's cravings and demonstrates a capacious gift for using the formal techniques of poetry in ubtrusive and captivating ways, rendering verse that is both poetically rich and emotionally charged.
- Author BiographyDavid Yezzi is director of New York's 92nd Street Y Unterberg Poetry Center. His critical writings have appeared in the New York Times, New Yorker, and other major publications; and his poetry has appeared in the New Republic, Paris Review, Yale Review, New England Review, and other journals.
