Description
"Over the course of his work-more than twenty books in total-Charles Wright has built zone of the truly distinctive bodies of poetry created in the second half of the twentieth centuryy (David Young, Contemporary Poets). Oblivion Banjo, a capacious new selection spanning his decades-long career, showcases the central themes of Wright's poetry: zlanguage, landscape, and the idea of God.y No matter the precise subject of each poem, on display here is a vast and rich interior life, a mind wrestling with the tenuous relationship between the ways we describe the world and its reality. The recipient of almost every honor in poetry-the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award, and the Bollingen Prize, to name a few-and a former poet laureate of the United States, Wright is an essential voice in American letters. Oblivion Banjo is the perfect distillation of his inimitable career-for devout fans and newcomers alike."--Publisher's website.
