Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. In LOVE ABOUT LOVE, C. K. Williams has created a wholly new context for poems written over a lifetime. Culled from all of his previous collections, the poems have been reorganized by the author, sometimes radically, into a sequence that throws startling fresh light on them. With his characteristic intensity and directness, Williams explores the many faces of his subject — passion, affection, sexuality, loneliness, jealousy, loss — in poems remarkable for their range and ingenuity. LOVE ABOUT LOVE is an unsentimental and unsparing self-assessment by a poet writing at the height of his powers, a vital study of the evolution of a consciousness that is truth-telling, passionate, and profound. REPAIR, the most recent book by Williams, won the 2000 Pulitzer Prize; he has been a Guggenheim Fellow and a Lila Wallace Fellow, has twice received a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, and has received numerous other awards. LOVE ABOUT LOVE is also available in hardcover from SPD.

Synopsis:

Pulitzer Prize-winning poet. International reputation. The author has radically revised and reorganized earlier work for this volume.

Synopsis:

The collected love poems of a Pulitzer Prize-winning poet. What emerges is a complex and surprising self-portrait-as-lover from earliest childhood longings to the hindsight of mature experience. Love About Love is a vital study of the evolution of a consciousness that is truth-telling, passionate, and profound.
