More than fifty years of poems by the incomparable Jack Gilbert, from his Yale Younger Poets prize volume to glorious late poems, including a section of new and unpublished work. There is no one quite like Jack Gilbert in postwar American poetry. Turning away from the literary scene after garnering acclaim withViews of Jeopardy(1962), he escaped to Europe and lived apart from the literary establishment, honing his uniquely fierce, declarative style, with its surprising abundance of feeling. He reappeared in our midst withMonolithos(1982), and then went underground again untilThe Great Fires(1994), eventually followed byRefusing Heaven(2005), a multiple prize-winning volume of surpassing joy and sorrow, and the elegiacThe Dance Most of All(2009). Now, for the first time, we have all of his work in one essential volume: testament to a stunning career, and to his place at the forefront of poetic achievement in our time.

Jack Gilbert was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on February 17, 1925. He received a bachelor's degree in English from the University of Pittsburgh in 1954 and a master's from San Francisco State in 1963. He also attended Jack Spicer's Magic Poetry Workshop. His first collection of poetry, Views of Jeopardy, won the 1961 Yale Younger Poets Prize and was published in 1962. His other works include Monolithos, which won the Stanley Kunitz Prize and the American Poetry Review Prize; The Dance Most of All; Transgressions: Selected Poems; Refusing Heaven, which won the National Book Critics Circle Award; and The Great Fires: Poems 1982-1992. He died after developing pneumonia on November 13, 2012 at the age of 87.
