Product Overview

"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
