Again, I'm guilty of carrying this large-large collection around in my (just as large) bag.
Creeley was a prolific writer in his time. There's a story: His collection called, Parts, was distributed to soldiers stationed during the war. They soon discovered it was a book of poems, not about mechanical parts.
Why read Creeley: I said so.
This book was just released and it gathers together all Creeley's later work. It's a great addition to the first collected poems (1945-1975) and they both form an incredible and yet somehow modest body of work from one of this country's great poets.

I appreciate how honest Creeley is, but I don't think he's a really great poet. He's also very prolific, which I appreciate.
Your Creeley collection is not complete without this. One of the most influential poets of our era.
Robert Creeley taught me a new way of hearing a poem. For him: gratitude.

Capen Professor of Poetry and the Humanities at State University of New York at Buffalo, and lived ...more
