Ron Padgett: Collected Poems (Hardcover)
Author: Ron Padgett
Publisher: Coffee House Press (2013)
Gathering the work of more than fifty years, Ron Padgett's Collected Poems is the record of one of the most dynamic careers in twentieth-century American poetry. Padgett's poems reverberate with his reading and friendships, from Andrew Marvell to Woody Guthrie and Kenneth Koch. Wry, insightful, and direct, they offer readers the rewards of his endless curiosity and generous spirit.
“Ron Padgett makes the most quiet and sensible of feelings a provocatively persistent wonder.”
