Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Highly regarded throughout her prestigious literary career, and today seen as an undeniable master of her art, Elizabeth Bishop remains one of America's most influential and widely acclaimed poets. This is the definitive collection of her work. The Complete Poems includes the books North & South, A Cold Spring, Questions of Travel, and Geography III, as well as previously uncollected poems, translations, and juvenilia.

Review:

"With their wit, honesty, abundance, imaginative breadth, and prosodic grace...thirty or forty of the poems in this book seem as valuable as any written in English since the last war." Christopher Reid, The Sunday Times (London)

Review:

"Bishop was not just a good poet but a great one. She accomplished a magical illumination of the ordinary, forcing us to examine our surroundings with the freshness of a friendly alien." David Lehman, Newsweek

Review:

"Bishop was one of the finest poets this country produced in [the twentieth] century; we are lucky to have all her work collected now in one volume." Jane Howard, Mademoiselle
