The collected poems of Barbara Guest by Barbara Guest( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most notable members of the New York School - and its best-known woman - Barbara Guest began writing poetry in the 1950s in company that included John Ashbery, Kenneth Koch, Frank O'Hara, and Tames Schuyler. And from the beginning, her practice placed her at the vanguard of American writing. Guest's poetry, saturated in the visual arts, extended the formal experiments of modernism, and played the abstract qualities of language against its sensuousness and materiality. Now, for the first time, all of her published poems have been brought together in one volume, offering readers and scholars unprecedented access to Guest's remarkable visionary work. The Collected Poems moves from her early New York School years through her more abstract later work, including some final poems never before published. Switching effortlessly from the real to the dreamlike, the observed to the imagined, this is poetry both gentle and piercing - seemingly simple, but truly and beautifully dislocating."--Jacket

Miniatures and Other Poems is a collection of compressed and allusive poems organized in three series: Miniatures, Pathos and Blurred Edge. Each "miniature" reduces a poem to its most intimate meaning, but this is not to suggest that the significance of the poem is small. Just as little pieces of music blossom into large chords, so these small poems blossom with large intimations
The red gaze by Barbara Guest( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Red Gaze is a sequence of interconnected poems on imagination and time, beginning with "Nostalgia" and ending with "Supposition." The idea of imagination propels The Red Gaze; references and allusions to art, literature, and history create what has become a signature of Barbara Guest's work - the poem as the event itself. Reading, we inhabit an art - for a brief time suspended in its vision."--Jacket
