About this product
- DescriptionFrom Pulitzer Prize winner and former Poet Laureate Charles Simic comes a dazzling collection of poems as original, meditative, and humorous as the legendary poet himself. This latest volume of poetry from Charles Simic, one of America's most celebrated poets, demonstrates his revered signature style-a mix of understated brilliance, wry melancholy, and sardonic wit. These seventy lumius poems range in subject from mortality to personal ads, from the simple wonders of nature to his childhood in war-torn Yugoslavia. For over fifty years, Simic has delighted readers with his invative form, quiet humor, and his rare ability to limn our interior life and concisely capture the depth of human emotion. These stunning, succinct poems-most longer than a page, some longer than a paragraph-validate and reinforce Simic's importance and relevance in modern poetry.
