Description: This new, compactSelected Poemsoffers for the first time a balanced survey of Robert Creeley's entire sixty years of poetic accomplishment. It showcases the works that made him one of the most beloved and significant writers of the past century while inviting a new recognition of his enduring commitments, fluency, and power. As If As if a feeling, come from nought, Suspended time in fascinated concentration, So that all the world therein became Of that necessity its own reward- I lifted to mind a piece Of bright blue air and then another. Then clouds in fluffy subtance floated by. Below I felt a lake of azure waited. I cried, Here, here I am-the only place I'll ever be ... Whether it made a common sense or found a world, Years flood their gate, the company dispersed. This person still is me.
