Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Masterfully drawing on a variety of voices and characters, James Tate joyfully offers his first book since winning the Pulitzer Prize in 1992 for his "Selected Poems."

Review:

"These new poems...deliver the typical Tate-esque trope de grace to all sanctimonious poses and stodgy cogitation, all verdigris-encrusted mental statuary." Carolyne Wright, Harvard Review

Review:

"[James Tate] never ceases to astonish, dismay, delight, confuse, tickle, and generally improve the quality of our lives." John Ashbery

Review:

"...Mr. Tate's gift is such that many of [his] poems move me at least to plain envy of what he can do." W.S. Merwin
