About this title

Synopsis:

Barbara Guest began writing in the 1950s, a member of the New York School of Poets. She embraces the experiments of Modernism and uses the abstract qualities in words against their sensuousness. Miniatures and Other Poems is a collection of compressed and allusive poems, organized in three series: Miniatures, Pathos and Blurred Edge. Each "miniature" reduces a poem to its most intimate meaning, but this is not to suggest that the significance of the poem is small. Just as little pieces of music blossom into large chords, so these small poems blossom with large intimations.

From the Publisher:

5 1/2 x 8 1/2 trim.
