Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 2001, Ivan R. Dee began publication of the annual New Criterion Poetry Prize winner with the appearance of Donald Petersen s Early and Late. The New Criterion, which has published poetry since 1984, is recognized as one of the foremost contemporary venues for poetry with a regard for traditional meter and poetic form. The magazine was thus an early leader in that poetic renaissance that has come to be called the New Formalism. For 2002 The New Criterion Poetry Prize was awarded to Adam Kirsch. His first book of poems, The Thousand Wells, is now published. Combining a passionate lyricism with commanding technical skill, Mr. Kirsch offers a beguiling and memorable sequence of poems that are deeply alive to the enchantments of nature and the chastenings of history. This is a remarkable debut by a notable young poet.

Synopsis:

For 2002 The New Criterion Poetry Prize has been awarded to Adam Kirsch. His melodious verse renders the joys and sorrows of romantic love and the agonizing dialectics of American political history. Mr. Kirsch has already written poems that will endure, and he bids fair to join the ranks of his masters. --Daniel Mark Epstein
