Mercy Seat : Collected and New Poems 1967-2001 (01 Edition)by Norman Dubie
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Norman Dubie has one of the most radical imaginations in American letters.
Winner of the PEN Literary Award for Poetry, The Mercy Seat includes selections from each of Dubie’s 17 previous volumes. Whether illuminating a common laborer or a legendary thinker, Dubie meets his subjects with utter compassion for their humanity and the dignity behind their creative work. In pursuit of the well-told story, his love of history is ever-present—though often he recreates his own.
“With its restoration of so many out-of-print poems and its addition of new works, The Mercy Seat was one of last year’s most significant publications.” —American Book Review
“The voices of Dubie’s monologues are full of astonishing intimacy.” —The Washington Post Book World
