The author, a poet, short story writer, critic and novelist, has been called the most metaphysical, the most learned, and the most modern of poets. With writing that reflects an intense interest in psychological, philosophical, and scientific issues, he remains a unique influence upon modern writers and critics today. In his lifetime, he received many awards including the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1930 and the National Book Award for Poetry in 1954. He served as the Consultant in Poetry at the Library of Congress from 1950-1952. This collection contains his own choice of the best and most representative of his poems, spanning more than forty years of his work.

This indispensable volume, which includes the classic stories?Silent Snow, Secret Snow? and?Mr. Arcularis,? is a testament to the dazzling artistry of one of the twentieth century's most influential writers A young woman passes through the countryside to visit her dying grandmother for a final time. A cabbie, exhausted from a long day's work, fights to get an intoxicated woman out of his taxi. A man on his way to a bachelor party tries to come to grips with the brutishness that lies within every gentleman--and finds that Bacardi cocktails do nothing to help. A master craftsman whose poetry and prose offer profound insight into the riddle of consciousness, Conrad Aiken thrills, disturbs, and inspires in all forty-one of these astute and eloquent tales

16 editions published in 1957 in English and Undetermined and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the curtain rises Mr. Arcularis lies on the operating table in a surgical amphitheater, surrounded by doctors and nurses and watched by unseen medical students. Then Mr. Arcularis drifts into his ether dream, a strange, cold, ocean voyage which makes up the heart of the play. Finally in the growing chill and the gradual slowing of the ships engines the scene returns to the operating room and the death of Mr. Arcularis. --Harvard Crimson 3/01/1957
