9780978555580: At the End of the Day: Selected Poems and an Introductory Essay

Poetry. Though known today mostly as an essayist, Phillip Lopate worked seriously as a poet for fifteen years during the 1970s and 1980s. As Henri Cole writes: "Phillip Lopate may be an American ambassador of nonfiction, but he is also a youthful, taciturn, love-seeking New York poet, whose poems--plainspoken, personal, darkly humorous--quietly gather strength while confronting the beautiful and ugly in city life. I admire their vitality and honesty."

Review:

Anyone eager for the performance of an adult, rich and animated intelligence will be grateful for Phillip Lopate's display of personality and experience. --New York Times Book Review

Phillip Lopate may be an American ambassador of nonfiction, but he is also a youthful, taciturn, love-seeking New York poet, whose poems' plainspoken, personal, darkly humorous quietly gather strength while confronting the beautiful and ugly in city life. I admire their vitality and honesty. --Henri Cole
