Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Night Errands is an anthology comprising personal essays and accompanying poems by more than two dozen contemporary American poets. It is the first collection to focus specifically on the messages the subconscious sends nightly to poets, and the ways such communications affect their work. The book is based on the premise that dreams and poetry are intimately related, and in fact, parallel languages. Both rely on compression, juxtaposition, deep imagery, and ambiguity to create a charged atmosphere and unearth buried truths.
