More Things in Heaven: New and Selected Poems (Hardcover)


Available to Ship - Est. Delivery in 8-13 Business Days
With formal grace and dexterity, David Yezzi's More Things in Heaven draws from his four previous volumes and includes seventeen new poems that explore art and friendship, marriage and family, and a renewal through poetry that his careful craftmanship makes possible. Here you will find compressed lyrics as well as longer, blank-verse narratives reminiscent of Robert Frost or Anthony Hecht. As Yezzi memorializes a host of relations and experience with humor and humanity, we are reminded of Shakespeare not only in the title of this volume, but also in the sheer range of characters - friends, family, poets, fellow citizens - given life in these poems.
