About this title

Synopsis:

A reissue of the first published work of A. R. Ammons, "the Sublime of his generation" ―Harold Bloom

In A. R. Ammons's debut, published fifty years ago in a rare edition, his penetrating poetic insight was already obvious. These poems are terse and evocative, dramatically conveying the fear of identity loss, the appreciation of transient natural beauty, the conflict between the individual and the group, the creation of false gods to serve human needs.

About the Author:

A. R. Ammons’s (1926–2001) was a two-time winner of the National Book Award and the recipient of a National Book Critics Circle Award. His many additional honors include the Academy of American Poets’ Wallace Stevens Award, the Bollingen Prize, the Poetry Society of America’s Robert Frost Medal, the Ruth Lilly Prize, and fellowships from the Guggenheim and MacArthur Foundations.
