From the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet, a haunting collection of poems, graced by his dark humor and wit as he comes closer to the end of his writing life.In these riveting poems, Wright declares, "I've said all that / I had to say. / In writing. / I signed my name. / It's death's move." As he faces cancer, the poet finds a new elation and clarity on the page, handing over for our examination the ruinously flawed yet kneeling-in-gratitude self he has become. "F" stands both for Franz, the poet/persona who represents all of us on our baffling lifelong journeys, and for the alphabet, the beautiful utility of our symbols. From "Entries of the Cell," the long central poem that details the loneliness of the single soul, to short narrative prose poems and traditional lyrics, Wright revels in the compensatory power of language as he observes the daylight headlights following a hearse, or the wind, "blessing one by one the unlighted buds of the backbent peach tree's unnoticed return." He is at his best in this ravishing collection of next-to-last work.
