All That Gorgeous Pitiless Song

Poetry. "Foust brings to life an immense range of experience and feeling. This poet's emotional intelligence correlates, too, with her formal skill, that unique talent for phrase and rhythm with which she makes a whole world palpable. A superb poet and a tremendous book"--Peter Campion.

Jigsaw

Watkins is a poet's poet, a masterful writer of metrical verse-rhymed and blank-but one whose free verse is as good as his formal, a rare achievement""-Timothy Murphy. The poems and few translations (Hugo, Heine, Rilke) included in this collection were written over a period of more than twenty years, and are set in a variety of landscapes, including the poet's native Yorkshire, and locations across Europe.

Not for Specialists: New and Selected Poems

Until the late 1970s, W.D. Snodgrass was known primarily as a confessional poet and a key player in the emergence of that mode of poetry in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Snodgrass makes poetry out of the daily neuroses and everyday failures of a man-a husband, father, and teacher. This domestic suffering occurs against a backdrop of more universal suffering which Snodgrass believes is inherent in the human experience.
