Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. One tour-de-force after another, each with an impressive sureness of touch...No poet writing today has a greater breadth of sensibility than Violi, or expresses it in a greater range of styles, or uses more of the devices that poetry has to offer.

Synopsis:

Breakers brings together several of this influential poet's major, longer poems, and presents new work.
