Song of napalm : poems by Bruce Weigl( Book )

10 editions published between 1988 and 2001 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Song of Napalm is more than a collection of beautifully wrought, heart-wrenching and often very funny poems. It's a narrative, the story of an American's innocent's descent into hell and his excruciating return to life on the surface. Weigl may have written the best novel so far about the Vietnam War, and along the way a dozen truly memorable poems."'Russell Banks

Archeology of the circle : new and selected poems by Bruce Weigl( Book )

5 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Song of Napalm, Bruce Weigl established himself as a poet of incomparable power and lyric fury, whose work stands as an elegy to the countless lives dramatically altered by war. Archeology of the Circle brings together the major work of one of America's greatest poets. Collected here for the first time from eight volumes of poetry and spanning two decades, Archeology of the Circle also includes Weigl's most recent poems, which take a dramatic turn toward a hard-bitten and sensuous lyric. Out of the horror of individual experience, Bruce Weigl has fashioned poetry that offers solace to disillusionment and bears transcendent resonance for all of us. Archeology of the Circle illustrates Bruce Weigl's remarkable creative achievements and signifies his own personal and spiritual salvation through his writing

Sweet Lorain by Bruce Weigl( Book )

4 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As an elegist of the lives of those who have been changed by hardship and suffering - especially by war - Bruce Weigl has become one of the most admired American poets of his generation. In this, his seventh book of poems, Weigl returns not only to Vietnam but to the Lorain, Ohio, of his youth. In his continued quest for emotional and spiritual enlightenment, Weigl writes about the connections between his childhood in a working-class world and the powerful effects of the American war in Vietnam on all of us. With his characteristic fluidity of syntax and strong metaphor, Bruce Weigl has created in Sweet Lorain a description of living one life in two vastly different worlds
