About this title


In The Disappearing Trick, Len Roberts wrestles with the loss of loved ones - whether that loss be through death, a son moving away to college, or simply how people fade from our lives and memories. Hybrids of the narrative and lyric form, these poems are models of indirect statement that have, as Sharon Olds has said, emotional courage, powerful music, and a deep balance. Like the light shining on a face, or a girl's thigh back in a sixth-grade class, the poems often come as Proustian flashes - lasting just a second, but seeming eternal - amidst an increasing darkness.

About the Author:

Len Roberts is the translator of two chapbooks and one previous full-length volume of SAndor CsoA3ri's poetry, as well as the author of eight books of his own poetry. The Silent Singer: New and Selected Poems (University of Illinois Press, 2001), is his most recent book. He has received a fellowship from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation, two grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities for his translation work, and selection of his fourth book of poems, Black Wings, for the National Poetry Series
