About this title
Entrant for the Pulitzer Prize in Letters, 2009, Best New American Poet, 2007: Pastore owes all he has, and has ever had, to a saving engagement with his art. What I particularly admire is the gamble he takes, and wins, with those classic stylized poems. In less accomplished hands they might have been distractingly archaic, but here, defused by the beautifully plain and heartfelt thanks for everything into which they flow, they connect back to the great tradition from which Pastore has drawn strength not just artistically but personally, one feels throughout one of the more impressively and, I might say, spectacularly, composed first poetry collections in contemporary American poetry.About the Author:
Stephen R. Pastore won the Aldous Huxley Prize, 2007, for his novel, Never on These Shores. His novel, Alone in Eden was short-listed for the Clarendon Prize and Nominated for the European Critics Circle Novel of the Year, 2007. His play, Coming Back from Lyonnesse was successfully produced in Great Britain. He is the author of six bibliographical studies of American and British authors. This is his first book of poetry. Gregory Corso is his first cousin. Gregory Corso (1930-2001) was one of the outstanding poets of the Twentieth Century having published numerous works as one of the icons of the Beat Generation.
