Charles Simic has been widely celebrated for his brilliant poetic imagery
his social, political, and moral alertness
his uncanny ability to make the ordinary extraordinary
and not least, a sardonic humor all his own. Gathering much of his material from the seemingly mundane minutia of contemporary American culture, Simic matches meditations on spiritual concerns and the weight of history with a nimble wit, shifting effortlessly to moments of clear vision and intense poetic revelation.
The poems in this collection--spanning two decades of his work--present a rich and varied survey of a remarkable lyrical journey.
