15 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 871 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
Where water comes together with other water : poems by Raymond Carver( Book )

16 editions published between 1985 and 1986 in English and Undetermined and held by 809 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Raymond Carver, acclaimed as "one of the true contemporary masters" of the short story, demonstrates, in this first major collection of his poems, his talents in this form. Drawing poetic effects from the commonplace, Carver's poems bring us back to the "real world" more forcibly than his stories because we generally expect poetry to transport us to realms beyond the ordinary. While his diction is prose-like, some of his poems are marked by painful intensity and others by graceful and exuberant language. As Jonathan Yardley puts it, his "eye is so clear, it almost breaks your heart." ISBN 0-394-54470-6 : $13.95
