9780819571670: Apples from Shinar (Wesleyan Poetry Series)

Apples from Shinar was Hyam Plutzik’s second complete collection. Originally published in 1959 as a part of Wesleyan University Press’s newly minted poetry series, the collection includes “The Shepherd”—a section of the book-length poem “Horatio,” which earned Plutzik a finalist position for the Pulitzer Prize. “The love and the words and the simplicity,” that mark Plutzik’s poetry, writes Philip Booth, “are all here [in Apples from Shinar], and the poems come peacefully, and wonderfully, alive.” With a previously unpublished foreword by Hyam Plutzik and a new afterword by David Scott Kastan, this edition marks the centenary of Plutzik’s birth and will introduce a new generation of readers to the work of one of the best mid-century American poets.

About the Author:

HYAM PLUTZIK (1911–1962) was the Deane Professor of Rhetoric and Poetry at the University of Rochester. The author of six volumes of poetry, he was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 1961. DAVID SCOTT KASTAN is the George M. Bodman Professor of English at Yale University and one of the most widely read of American literary scholars.

Review:

“Hyam Plutzik’s poems have haunted me for twenty-five years. And they seem even more alive and special now than they did when I first found them. He has a kinship with Isaac Bashevis Singer, drawing his strengths in a similar way, directly and openly, from that ancient tradition, yet engaging the modern world as a stripped soul—with a point-blank, wholehearted simplicity of voice. His visions are authentic and piercing, and the song in them is strange—dense and harrowing, with unforgettable tones. The best of his work seems to me marvelously achieved, a sacred book.”—Ted Hughes, Hyam Plutzik: The Collected Poems
