Read full description of the books New and Selected Poems: 1962-2012:“It takes just one glimpse of Charles Simic’s work to establish that he is a master, ruler of his own eccentric kingdom of jittery syntax and signature insight.” -Los Angeles Times
For over fifty years, Charles Simic has been widely celebrated for his brilliant and innovative poetic imagery, his sardonic wit and a voice all his own. He has been awarded nearly every major literary prize for his poetry, including a Pulitzer and a MacArthur grant, in addition to serving as the poet laureate of the United States in 2007-2008. In this new volume, he distills his life’s work, combining for the very first time the best of his early poems with his later—including nearly three dozen revisions—along with seventeen new, never before published. Simic’s body of work draws inspiration from a range of topics from the inscrutability of ordinary life to American Blues, from folktales to marriage and war.
Consistently exciting and unexpected, the nearly 400 poems in this volume represent the best of one of America’s most distinguished and original poets.
