Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stephen Dunn's wisdom and craft are once again on display in this new collection, his darkest and most brooding gaze into our lives to date. The poet's penetrating intelligence and mordant wit fixes on an America growing ever more stringent with its daily mercies, ever more withholding of daily opportunities for grace, for decency. In the title poem and in the book as a whole, Dunn doesn't merely observe the world, he is a participant - willing and unwilling; his stance is always dual, complicit. He navigates through each paradox and conundrum of his moral, aesthetic, and erotic selves, careful to steer between the extremes of certainty or confusion, and travels to a place of exact and complicated vision.

Synopsis:

"Dunn's new poems are driven by the same tireless force that made his New and Selected Poems (1994) so powerful, but there is a new tone here, a deepening of his recognition of life's perversities."--Booklist

Synopsis:

In this tenth collection, Stephen Dunn turns his "wise, well-practiced eye" (Library Journal) on an America growing ever more stringent with its daily mercies. Not content merely to observe the world, Dunn's stance is always dual, complicit. And as he navigates through each paradox of his moral and aesthetic and erotic selves, this poet, described by Sydney Lea as one "who remains open to contradictions," travels to a place of exact and complicated vision.
