About this title


“We want a book—be it a work of fiction or poetry—to remind us how varied and complex our experience of the world can be at times. And yet when we encounter such a book, we realize how rarely we come across one that fits that description and how astonishing it is when we do. . . . Not many poets now writing have as wide a range as he does, both in terms of subject matter and form. His poems are rich in detail, masterly in execution, and always a good read. He is savvy about the way we Americans live and try to make sense of our lives in this moment in history.”—Poet Laureate Charles Simic

This book gathers work from Roger Mitchell’s previous nine books of poetry and adds a generous selection of new poems.

If the poetry of Roger Mitchell seems restless, so are the times in which it was written. Many sorts of mood congregate here—a mix of attitudes and strategies—but the constant is a readiness to stay alert. At home as much in traffic as on the frozen tundra, Mitchell sees the extent and the limits of almost anything. The poems are sometimes somber, sometimes whimsical.

These are poems for, and of, a time that put a man on the moon, made constant war, destroyed the world’s water, and invented the hula hoop. Which world do you live in? Roger Mitchell lives there, too.
