Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The eagerly awaited follow-up to his critically acclaimed collection The Daily Mirror, The Evening Sun gathers together 150 of David Lehman's favorite "daily poems" from 1999 and 2000 into a brilliant chronicle of a poet's heart and mind as the last century ends and a new one begins.

Review:

"Fun is the operative word here....It's slightly ironic that Lehman, general editor of The Best American Poetry annuals, might not find here a single poem worthy of inclusion, but the volume as a whole nevertheless delights. Recommended for most collections." Library Journal

Review:

"These page-or-less poems, while they can be formally quite refined, often come off as skilled but unambitious pastiches....Lehman's speaker affects a courtly, sometimes brash humor that most often reads like a disguise for a clinical indifference....Lehman's compulsive chronicle is at its best when his joke-machine is unfettered by self-reflection and he's got a few historical references to throw around..." Publishers Weekly
