About this title
Ten poems spanning fifty years, are the companion to Carruth's Collected Shorter Poems, recipient of the National Book Critics Circle Award in Poetry. "The work here seems to break every rule of modern poetry, yet it succeeds.... This volume displays the huge range, both in theme and form, of a poet who pushes his art to its limits, then beyond."--Publishers Weekly starred reviewFrom the Back Cover:
For fifty years, Hayden Carruth's poetry has been distinguished by the indelible presence of passion, compassion, and radical philosophy. Collected Longer Poems gathers the poet's choice of his narrative work and poems in sequence, including his epic on the nature of romance, The Sleeping Beauty, and meditative poems on the rural northeast that have made him the most accessible "regional" poet since Robert Frost. Our pre-eminent poet of improvisation within form, Carruth's renowned technical genius is perfectly matched to his ear for spoken language and narrative structure. By turns caustic and hilarious, his observations of that life, his own and his neighbors', ring as true as his ear for native speech. Collected Longer Poems completes the two-volume Collected Poems begun with the publication of Collected Shorter Poems in 1992, a volume that was a finalist for the National Book Award and won the National Book Critics Circle Award.
