This book is the exploration by a distinguished American poet and critic of his own lifelong fascination with the work of Edgar Allan Poe. Unlike any other book on Poe, this is for the countless scores of readers who have Poe under their skins, who have grown up knowing "The Raven," "Annabel Lee," "The Gold Bug," "The Murders in the Rue Morgue," "The fall of the House of Usher"--And who have never been able to escape from their spell. -- From cover

Beyond silence : selected shorter poems, 1948-2003 by Daniel Hoffman( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Accepting an award for poetry from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, Daniel Hoffman wrote, "Amid private sufferings and outrage at the brutalities of public life, it is gaiety that sustains us, and love, and the imagination's power to create from both deprivation and delight." This collection embodies those emotions and that imaginative power. Hoffman's verse has always exulted in the resources of language, as sensuous in sound as in response to the natural world. Beyond Silence, to be published on Hoffman's eightieth birthday, presents his shorter poems culled from eight previous collections, plus several new poems. Here, rather than in chronological order, they appear thematically and invite the reader to partake of the pleasures that characterize this distinguished poet's verse: "clarity, grace where desired, accuracy of visual detail and dialogue, and a formal mastery so deft that playfulness comes easily" (Fred Chappell)
