Trappings: New Poems Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. What remains to be said about Richard Howard? He is Poetry editor of THE PARIS REVIEW and WESTERN HUMANITIES REVEW, a Chancellor of the Academy of American Poets, a translator, critic, Pulitzer Prize winner, and for many the embodiment of the modern man of letters. In his newest book of poetry Howard offers a five-part meditation on family life. This is the wisest of Howard's eleven books, which is to say, a continuous profusion of inquiries, dissents, high spirits. Howard's IF I DREAM I HAVE YOU, I HAVE YOU is also available from SPD.

Synopsis:

Richard Howard's latest collection is a five-part meditation on family life, and is perhaps the most intimate statement that Howard has afforded in eleven books of poetry. Displaying his celebrated craft for portraying a wide variety of historical voices, Howard develops the dramatic possibilities implicit in the scene of Milton dictating Paradise Lost to his daughters. Also interwoven are three salutes to artists: Lee Krasner, Muriel Rukeyser, and Mona Van Duyn, and in these passages Howard fuses metaphors of aesthetic choice and paths to be taken in life. Since winning the Pulitizer Prize in 1970 for his third book, Untitled Subjects, Howard has continued to enchant and amaze an ever growing audience with his incisive observations of desire, aging, and death. This is the wisest of Howard's books, which is to say, a continuous profusion of inquiries, dissents, and high spirits.
