Different Hours: Poems Cover

 

Awards

2001 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stephen Dunn, in his startling and graceful eleventh collection, often set in southern New Jersey where he makes his home, continues to find his subjects in the dailiness of life, at the same time expanding his vision to a darker emotional landscape. The mysteries of Eros and Thanatos, the stubborn endurance of mind and body in the face of diminishment – these are the under-currents of Dunn's new work.

Dunn explores the "different hours," not only of one's life, but also of the larger historical and philosophical life beyond the personal, and brilliantly succeeds in getting at and plumbing our elusive realities.
