About this title:
The forty poems in North Street are concerned with the space between "Turning Forty" and "Turning Fifty," between the assumption of maturity and the sighting of its limits. All are preoccupied in one way or another with the notion of an "otherwhere," a "world I don't believe in" in which the "water of memory" is washed by "the water of forgetfulness," and the "touch of forgiveness" allows " a guilty man" to "go free." It is between these poles--between the recognition of aloneness and gratitude for "the gnawing, the knowing,/the being and being here"--that the drama, the story of North Street, unfolds.
About the Author: Jonathan Galassi's first collection of poems, Morning Run, appeared in 1988. He has also published several volumes of translations of the Italian poet Eugenio Montale, most recently Collected Poems 1920-1954 in 19998. He is chairman of the Academy of American Poets and lives with his family in Brooklyn, New York.
