A NEW YORK REVIEW E-BOOK ORIGINAL As former U.S. poet laureate Charles Simic has said, the secret to our identities lies not in grand events, but in the parentheses between events--and in these brief essays, we get a taste of this great poet's parenthetical observations and recollections. He takes us from his rattling house on a stormy New Hampshire... more...
- Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 1994; US$ 10.95
Simic puts chirping birds, sex, and happiness into a world of broken windows, shivering trees, soldiers, lone dogs, the homeless of the city, and a God still making up his mind. ?Provocative...a tantalizing, beautiful fusion of visions? (Bloomsbury Review). more...
- Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 1986; US$ 10.95
Whether he draws for inspiration on American blues, Serbian folktales, or Greek myths, Simic's words have a way of their own. Each of these forty-four poems is a powerful mixture of concrete images. Each records the reality and myth of the world around us-and in us. "Short, perfectly shaped, Simic's poems float past like feathers, turning one way,... more...
- Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 1992; US$ 10.95
In this volume, Simic fills the wee hours of his poetry with angels and pigs, riddles and cemeteries. His is a rich, haunted world of East European memory and american present-a world of his own creation, one always full of luminous surprise. ?Simic writes so simply that his words fall like drops of water, but they ripple outward to evoke an ominous... more...
- Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 1990; US$ 10.95
Loneliness, loss, sadness, and mystery mark this wonderful volume of forty-nine poems by Charles Simic, winner of the 1990 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry and praised as ?one of the truly imaginative writers of our time? by the Los Angeles Times. more...
- Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 2000; US$ 13.95
In this new collection of sixty-two poems Charles Simic paints exquisite and shattering word pictures that lend meaning to a chaotic world populated by insects, bridal veils, pallbearers, TV sets, parrots, and a finely detailed dragonfly. Suffused with hope yet unafraid to mock his own credulity, Simic's searing metaphors unite the solemn with the... more...
- Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 1996; US$ 14.95
Hamlet?s ghost wandering the halls of a Vegas motel, a street corner ventriloquist using passersby as dummies, and Jesus panhandling in a weed-infested Eden are just a few of the startling conceits Simic unleashes in this collection. ?Few contemporary poets have been as influential-or inimitable-as Charles Simic? (New York Times Book Review). more...
- Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 2006; US$ 12.99
Charles Simic has been widely celebrated for his brilliant poetic imagery; his social, political, and moral alertness; his uncanny ability to make the ordinary extraordinary; and not least, the sardonic humor all his own. Gathering much of his material from the seemingly mundane minutiae of contemporary American culture, Simic matches meditations... more...
- Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 1989; US$ 13.95
In this collection, winner of the 1990 Pulitzer Prize, Charles Simic puns, pulls pranks. He can be jazzy and streetwise. Or cloak himself in antiquity. Simic has new eyes, and in these wonderful poems and poems-in-prose he lets the reader see through them. more...
