In this final collection, which was left virtually complete at the time of his death, James Wright returns with haunting insistence to the themes that have become hallmarks of one of the enduring poetic voices of our time: the evocation of the author's Ohio childhood and youth; the intense, minute observation of the daily life of the classic culture of Italy, that any modern American poet has achieved.--Jacket blurb

From the publisher. Leslie Marmon Silko and James Wright met only twice. Their first encounter was brief, at a writers' conference in Michigan. Their correspondence began three years later, after Wright wrote to Silko praising her book Ceremony. The letters began formally, and then each writer gradually opened to the other, sharing his or her life, work, and struggles. The second meeting between the two writers came in a hospital room, as Wright lay dying of cancer

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than any other poet of his generation, James Wright spoke to the great sadness and hope that are inextricable from the iconography of America: its rail yards, rivers, cities, and once vast natural beauty. Speaking in the unique lyrical voice that he called his "Ohioan," Wright created poems of immense sympathy for society's alienated and outcast figures and also of ardent wonder at the restorative power of nature. Selected Poems fills a significant gap in Wright's bibliography: that of an accessible, carefully chosen collection to satisfy both longtime readers and those just discovering his work. Edited and with an introduction by Wright's widow, Anne, and his close friend the poet Robert Bly, who also wrote an introduction, Selected Poems is a personal, deeply considered collection of work with pieces chosen from all of Wright's books. It is an overdue--and timely--new view of a poet whose life and work encompassed the extremes of American life
