Dara Wier: Selected Poems (Hardcover)
Author: Dara Wier
Publisher: Waves Books (2009)
Spanning 1977 to 2006, Selected Poems is a major retrospective that will stand as an indispensable record of turn-of-the-millennium poetry. The progression of Dara Wier’s poetry over the last thirty years mirrors—and simultaneously transcends—the evolution of American poetry, from the lyric poems of the Deep South to the complex intensity of poems in more recent volumes such as Remnants of Hannah and Reverse Rapture. Selected Poems confirms Dara Wier as one of contemporary poetry's most important and insistent voices.
