9780819512185: The Whole Motion: Collected Poems, 1945–1992 (Wesleyan Poetry Series)

For over three decades, James Dickey has been one of the nation’s most important poets and a prominent man of letters. The Whole Motion collects his poetic oeuvre into a single volume: 235 poems from his first book, Into the Stone (1960), to The Eagle’s Mile (1990), along with previously uncollected poems and unpublished “apprentice” works.

Review:

This is the definitive James Dickey collection. Wallace Stegner wrote that Dickey's poems leave the reader with "an awed sense of the pure power of these words." Better known as the novelist who wrote Deliverance, Dickey was one of the most important poets of the century. "The Lifeguard" is one of his best poems and is typical of his writing in its blending of the physical and spiritual worlds, in its memorable images, and in its marriage of sound to sense. This is one to read again and again, to be newly astonished.

Book Description University Press of New England, United States, 1994. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. For over three decades, James Dickey has been one of the nation s most important poets and a prominent man of letters. The Eagle s Mile, his most recent volume, was a triumphant success, a bold and innovative departure from his traditional verse. The New York Times declared, Dickey continues to extend his vision as a major American poet, while Fred Chappell, himself a Bollingen Prize winner, wrote, If there were a literary prize for Poetry That Has Shown Real Moxie, it ought to go to The Eagle s Mile. Now, The Whole Motion collects Dickey s oeuvre into a single volume: 235 poems, ranging from his first book, Into the Stone, through the prize-winning Buckdancer s Choice, to The Eagle s Mile, as well as a selection of previously uncollected and unpublished apprentice works gathered under the title Summons. The Whole Motion documents the development of a major literary figure, one who has greatly influenced a younger generation of poets; it illuminates the evolution of one of the finest poetic sensibilities of our times.
