Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"The subtlest feeling for the measure that I encounter anywhere except in the verses of Ezra Pound."--William Carlos Williams

"It is a study, how Creeley lands syntax down the alley, and his vocabulary--pure English--to hit meters and rhymes all of which are spares and strikes."--Charles Olson

"Robert Creeley's poetry is as basic and necessary as the air we breathe; as hospitable, plain and open as our continent itself."--John Ashbery

"Robert Creeley has created a noble body of poetry that extends the work of his predecessors Pound, Williams, Zukofsky, and Olson, and provides like them a method for his successors in exploring our new American poetic consciousness."--Allen Ginsberg

"Creeley is a touchstone for me-a measure of what poetry is. He is a genius of the sensorium as Kerouac was and a master of the ear as is Miles Davis. He is a carver in space like Van Gogh."--Michael McClure
