Unending Blues: Poems

Charles Simic (Author)
Available

Description

Whether he draws for inspiration on American blues, Serbian folktales, or Greek myths, Simic's words have a way of their own. Each of these forty-four poems is a powerful mixture of concrete images. Each records the reality and myth of the world around us-and in us. Short, perfectly shaped, Simic's poems float past like feathers, turning one way, then another (Village Voice).
