Selected Poems, 1945-2005 (Edited by Benjamin Friedlander)

Berkeley, CA: University of California Press, 2008. First Trade Softcover Edition. Softcover. "The evolutions of Creeley's later practice exemplify the dynamic character of his writing overall: even at those moments when he seems most decisively to set aside or move beyond qualities or concerns of his earlier work, readers can discover points of continuity, so that even his radical shifts become part of a larger pattern of coherence and variation." Such is true when considering this essential selected poems from Creeley, a penetrating collection of original verses from a bonified American 20th century master. As Clark Coolidge has said: "Such resolve. Such heart. And an ear to reckon with. No truly further American poem without his." (Introduction & back cover). Book in fine condition with only moderate rubbing to front, back covers; slight shelf-wear to all fine-edges of same; price tag from Ann Arbor's legendary Shaman Drum bookshop at bottom right corner of back cover; slight outward bend of front cover. Fine. [Item #2806]
