5.0 out of 5 stars Honest, touching, humerous and informative 13 Jun. 1996
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Charles Simic is a poet whose work has many levels;mythic,funny,philosophical. He travels in cities, in vast landscapes and through the cosmos. This book of essays and memoires exemplifies his easy manner which takes the reader on a journey through poetry and through the formative moments in Simic's life. The tone is conversational, deeply moving in parts, helped along by Simic's wit and his way of seeing the world. He has the capacity to make us wonder at the universe while simulatneously questioning the foolishness of humanity in history. This book is well worth reading for those who enjoy his poetry, those who write poetry and those of us who share his passioninate love of life
