An important collection of poems by one of America's most respected and honored poets, MacArthur Fellow and winner of the Pulitzer Prize.In each of Simic's poems, deceptively simple images and situations strike the mind, almost unawares, from an angle of incidence it never quite experienced before, affecting one with a kind of intellectual aftershock: the poem's true subject dawns on you a moment after you finish the poem, and suddenly, everything you have just read -- I almost said, 'everything you ever thought' -- is reconfigured. -- Charles Stein. This is an elegantly designed and beautifully printed early book by Simic.
