Editorial Reviews

Review

"[F]or a small number of readers Peck will always matter tremendously. Be one of them." -- Robert Archambeau, Notre Dame Review


"[T]he best poet of my generation . . . as indifferent to academic fashions as he is to those of the poetry market." -- Clive Wilmer


"The poems are so...outstandingly beautiful that the desire to 'understand' [places] second to the straightforward need to read on." -- Patrick McGuinness

Book Description

A selection of poems by a contemporary master

John Peck's poems draw on both modernist and traditional resources, quarrying in the large gaps among contemporary readers of poetry. This definitive collection makes available difficult-to-find works by a remarkable, thoroughly original American poet. Peck's poems continue to attract a discerning, loyal audience of readers up to the challenge of confronting his astonishing range and ambitions.
