Ultramarine by Raymond Carver( Book )

10 editions published between 1986 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 866 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mr. Carver is heir to that most appealing American poetic voice, the lyricism of Theodore Roethke and James Wright... this book is a treasure, one to return to. No one's brevity is as rich, as complete, as Raymond Carver's." --New York Times Book Review "Carver's gifts as a storyteller shine through his poetry... Sometimes a Carver poem also works as a short story, with all its elements--character, diction, place, event--compressed intact into the brevity of verse. And sometimes Carver delivers the goods in pure lyrical form, in words as full of yearning and sensibility as those of a very young man, but poems possessing the hard-won qualities of focus, stillness and irony only rewarded by experience." --Los Angeles Times
