Description:

Awarded the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry for 1995, Philip Levine goes from strength to strength, having received the National Book Ward for Poetry for his earlier book What Work Is. This is the first paperback edition of this text, about which Harold Bloom said, "The controlled pathos of every poem in the volume is immense, and gives me a new sense of Levine."

As a poet, Levine has been preoccupied with domestic and modern urban life, loneliness, and love. His poetry is somber, reflective, and restrained; his language simple and direct. His take on the modern world is dark and unsentimental. Born in Detroit, Levine has taught writing at a number of universities, including Berkeley, Princeton, and Columbia. Levine was appointed the Library of Congress 18th Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry for 2011-2012.
