I reread "Mr. Cogito" recently, and I realized that, as all good poetry, it has not aged. Mr. Cogito is an Everyman, and he offers companionship to readers regardless of their location in time and geography. His self-restraint is an admirable and comforting response to the bewildering abundance of contemporary culture, and his modesty and penchant for contemplation reassure us that "looking out for number one" is not the most important thing in life. Truly a timeless book of poetry.

Format: Paperback
This slim volume contains some of Herbert's best known poems. It is mainly a sequence of autobiographical poems touching on many aspects of Herbert's life. There are a few non-autobiographical poems and some short prose pieces. Ably translated or perhaps re-imagined by John and Bogdana Carpenter, these poems are distinguished by economical language and striking imagery. The best poems are wonderful and the cumulative impact of the sequence is remarkable.
