Collected Longer Poems

Collected Longer Poems Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Winner of the Paterson Poetry Prize and companion to Collected Shorter Poems. Here is Carruth's longer narrative work and poems in sequence, including the epic on the nature of romance, The Sleeping Beauty.
