Format: Paperback
A collection of relatively short poems, and each and every one of them tell of such a genuine, deep feeling you wouldn't believe possible on a printed page. I sincerely recommend this to everyone who has ever been in love! Beautiful!!

A wonderful book of short, tender and witty poems. Poignant enough to be extremely moving but sharp and humorous enough not to be cloyingly sentimental.

A Great American Poet 30 May 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
James Laughlin was no less than a great American poet. Sometimes overlooked because of those he published, (a suggestion from Ezra Pound, while he attended the Ezuversity in Italy) William Carlos Williams helped devise his own meter and voice. What we have is truly an American voice that can be compared to the great Roman poet Catullus. This collection is some of his finer poetry, and quite a pleasure to read.
