The collected poems of John Ciardi by John Ciardi( Book )

7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 754 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his biography of Ciardi, Edward Cifelli says this poet is one best remembered and understood as writing in a special class of American poets, including contemporaries like Robert Lowell, Elizabeth Bishop, Richard Wilbur, and Randall Jarrell. This collection finally demonstrates the scope and wealth of his contribution to that era. Further, it shows how, while always experimenting in form and meter and perfectly matching his structures to his subject matter, Ciardi resolutely held to an aesthetic that kept his poetry' free of the wavering fashions that dominated American poetry in the latter half of the twentieth century In The Collected Poems of John Ciardi, editor Edward Cifelli has gathered for us a "total poem" that is a powerful revelation of the career of a great American poet

John Ciardi : a biography by Edward M Cifelli( Book )

7 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this study of Ciardi's life, Edward Cifelli has captured all the deep concern, passion, and thoughtfulness that marked Ciardi's long career in American letters. With care and penetrating detail, Cifelli evokes Ciardi's early childhood in Boston, his Italian heritage, his service as a gunner on a B-29 during World War II, and his years teaching at Harvard and Rutgers. Illuminated here are Ciardi's widely read contributions as an editor of Saturday Review and World magazines, as well as his tireless effort to bring an awareness and love of language and poetry to America through radio, television, the lecture circuit, and his twenty-six years on the staff of the famous Bread Loaf Writers' Conference, a gathering he directed for seventeen years
