Product Overview

This collection contains new poetry alongside some of David Kirby's most beloved poems. Most of the poems are long narratives written in prose form, and all of the poems are marked by fixed-length stanzas and sawtooth margins. Kirby's writing is often touching and always laugh-out-loud funny. Inspiration for these poems came from the literary giants William Shakespeare, Dante Alighieri, and Walt Whitman. In fact, Kirby has chosen to organize these poems into three sections echoing Dante's organization of The Divine Comedy. The writing is largely autobiographical and deals with the restlessness of youth, the mixed blessings of imposed self-exile, and the settled pleasure of home.
