  • Blackbird and Wolfby Henri Cole

    Farrar, Straus and Giroux 2014; US$ 13.99

    I don't want words to sever me from reality. I don't want to need them.

    Farrar, Straus and Giroux 2014; US$ 12.99

    "To write what is human, not escapist," is Henri Cole's endeavor. In The Visible Man he pursues his aim by folding autobiography and memory into the thirty severe and fiercely truthful lyrics--poems presenting a constant tension between classical repose and the friction of life--that make up this exuberant book. This work, wrote Harold Bloom, "persuades... more...
