Review:

"OF NO COUNTRY I KNOW: NEW AND SELECTED POEMS AND TRANSLATIONS represents a life's work in poetry. The component volumes did not meet with fan fare, yet the work is brilliant with the certainty that comes with contemplation. Davis Ferry's poems are defined as remarkably by the virtues of theme as by those of style."

Mary Kinzie, Nation, 10/16/2000

Book Description: The University of Chicago Press, United States, 1999. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 278 x 154 mm. Brand New Book. David Ferry s Of No Country I Know: New and Selected Poems and Translations provides a wonderful gathering of the work of one of the great American poetic voices of the twentieth century. It brings together his new poems and translations, collected here for the first time; his books Strangers and Dwelling Places in their entirety; selections from his first book, On the Way to the Island ; and selections from his celebrated translations of the Babylonian epic Gilgamesh, the Odes of Horace, and of Virgil s Eclogues. This is Ferry s fullest and most resonant book, demonstrating the depth and breadth of forty years of a life in poetry. Though Ferry is perhaps best known for his eloquent translations of Horace and Virgil, Of No Country I Know demonstrates that he deserves acclaim for his own poetry as well. --Carmela Ciuraru, New York Times Book Review.
