Collected Poems of Jack Gilbert Cover Image
$30.00
ISBN: 9780375711763
Availability: Backordered
Published: Knopf - September 2nd, 2014

At turns ecstatic and at turns elegiac, these poems are an invitation into Gilbert's personal history which was defined by both exploration and isolation. Each of these poems is, like a single day, its own strange and incomprehensible bundle of events. An extremely satisfying and memorable read.
