About this title


Here, in a new selection of 200 poems from five decades, is the distinctive voice of Robert Creeley, reminding us of what has made him one of the most important and affectionately regarded poets of our time.

From the Inside Flap:

"From the first clear grounded 1940s insight snapshots of For Love through his recent decade experiments with syllable by syllable intelligence, Robert Creeley has created a noble life body of poetry that extends the work of his predecessors Pound, Williams, Zukofsky, and Olson and provides like them a method for his successors in exploring our new American poetic consciousness."—Allen Ginsberg

"Visionary and oracular, Creeley has been a worker in the deep romantic vein—words in this poetry are magic, charged as they are in dreams with message of the dark of the human condition."—Robert Duncan

"The subtlest feeling for the measure that I encounter anywhere except in the verses of Ezra Pound."—William Carlos Williams

"Robert Creeley's poetry is as basic and necessary as the air we breathe; as hospitable, plain, and open as our continent itself. He is about the best we have."—John Ashbery

"Dear, lovely, decorous, tender—ah, there is no one like him."—Carolyn Kizer
