Blizzard of one : poems by Mark Strand( Book )

18 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 1,304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Strand's poems occupy a place that exists between abstraction and the sensuous particulars of experience. It is a place created by a voice that moves with unerring ease between the commonplace and the sublime. The poems are filled with "the weather of leavetaking," but they are also unexpectedly funny. The erasure of self and the depredations of time are seen as sources of sorrow, but also as grounds for celebration. This is one of the difficult truths these poems dramatize with stoicism and wit

The weather of words : poetic invention by Mark Strand( Book )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet, a collection of writings on the art and nature of poetry." "The pieces have a broad range and many levels. In one, we sit with the teenage Mark Strand while he reads for the first time a poem that truly amazes him: "You, Andrew Marvell" by Archibald MacLeish, in which night sweeps in an unstoppable but exhilarating circle around the earth toward the speaker standing at noon. The essay goes on to explicate the poem, but it also evokes, through its form and content, the poem's meaning - time's circular passage - with the young Strand first happening upon the poem, the older Strand seeing into it differently, but still amazed." "Among the other subjects Strand explores: the relationship between photographs and poems, the eternal nature of the lyric, the contemporary use of old forms, four American views of Parnassus, and an alphabet of poetic influences."--Jacket

New selected poems by Mark Strand( Book )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than twenty-five years after the appearance of his first Selected Poems, we at last have a magnificent new gathering of Mark Strand's work, one that spans and celebrates his entire remarkable career to date. From Sleeping with One Eye Open (1964) through the wonderful middle work that includes The Continuous Life (1990), and crowned by the Pulitzer Prize-winning Blizzard of One (1998) and his most recent collection, Man and Camel (2006), this book makes a crucial selection of Strand's always beautiful and by turns humorous and melancholy poems. Over the decades Strand's identity as a poet has remained firm: he is existential, playful, mysterious, a poet of simple words and sentences that somehow add up to powerful universal experiences. With his incantatory language and radiant, commanding imagery, he creates mythic scenes and vistas that, however otherworldly, are ultimately of this earth: their underlying subject the pain and pleasure of being mortal. Here is an essential compilation from one of the most beloved and honored American poets at work today, without which no modern poetry collection is complete
Animal logic by Richard Barnes( )

9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Barnes's camera freezes migrating starlings to reveal the visual poetry hidden inside their dense formations. His extraordinary photographs of birds' nests constructed from detritus - string, plastic, milkweed, tinsel, hair, dental floss, pine needles - sculpturally embody our often complicated relationship with nature." "Animal Logic presents more than 120 of Barnes's photographs and features texts by Jonathan Rosen of the New York Times and curator Susan Yelavich, which explore the themes that emerge from Barnes's unique body of work."--Jacket

Dark harbor : a poem by Mark Strand( Book )

14 editions published between 1993 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The poems in this book are easily recognizable as the work of one of our most interesting and influential poets, but there is an extra dimension justifying a claim for the whole as a unified poem. Each of the forty-five sections plays against the others, and although wide-ranging and with many moods and changes of tone, Dark Harbor is all of a piece."--Jacket
