Feel Free: Poems

Nick Laird (Author)
Available

Description

Feel Free, the fourth collection from acclaimed poet Nick Laird, effortlessly marries the acoustic expansiveness of Whitman or Ashbery with the lyricism of Laird's forebears Heaney, MacNeice, and Yeats. With characteristic variety, invention, and wit, Laird explores the patterns of freedom and constraint--the family, the impress of history, the body itself--and how we might transcend them. Always daring, always renewing, Feel Free is Laird's most remarkable work to date.
