Product Description

Review

& nbsp; " One of the richest imaginations around . . . the affectionate humor with which Mr. Collins regards his surroundings amounts to a powerful kind of love, a reverence of the moment. "
--Washington Post

" Billy Collins can be downright funny; he's a parodist, a feigning trickster, an ironic, entertaining magician-as-hero. . . . Without question, Collins writes with verve, gumption and deep intelligence. Not many poets can infuse humor with such serious knowledge; not many can range so far& nbsp; throughout& nbsp; history and look so freshly into the future. Not many can please so thoroughly and still manage to chide, prod, urge, criticize, and teach. "
--Poetry Magazine

"Collins is jazzman and Buddhist, charmer and prince."

"--Booklist"

"Billy Collins's poetry is widely accessible. He writes in an original way about all manner of ordinary things and situations with both humor and a surprising contemplative twist."

--James H. Billington, Librarian of Congress announcing the appointment of Billy Collins as Poet Laureate

Billy Collins can be downright funny; he s a parodist, a feigning trickster, an ironic, entertaining magician-as-hero. . . . Without question, Collins writes with verve, gumption and deep intelligence. Not many poets can infuse humor with such serious knowledge; not many can range so far throughout history and look so freshly into the future. Not many can please so thoroughly and still manage to chide, prod, urge, criticize, and teach.
