Description
The volume that brings together, for the first time, the complete works of one of the giants of American poetry.
Description
Merrill touched each of his subjects, whether worldly or spiritual, with silvery wit and metrical music. A bracing glass of ouzo, afternoons at the gym with a gay partner, conversations with deceased friends via the Ouija board, a midnight swim -- all were occasions for contemplation and high art.
Description
Here are all the poems -- from his earliest published collection, The Black Swan and Other Poems (1946), to his posthumous volume, A Scattering of Salts (1995) -- together with many that have never been previously collected.
Description
An essential addition to every shelf of 20-century poetry.
