New and Selected Poems, 1962–2012

E-book

This retrospective collection by the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet contains “some of the strangest, most opalescent poems of the past half-century” (Boston Globe).

Over the course of his long career, former United States Poet Laureate Charles Simic has been celebrated for his brilliant and innovative imagery, his sardonic wit, and a voice all his own. In this new volume, he distills his life’s work, combining for the first time the best of his early poems with his later works—including nearly three dozen revisions—along with seventeen new, never-before-published poems.

Simic’s body of work draws inspiration from a range of topics, from the inscrutability of ordinary life to American blues; from folktales to marriage and war. Consistently exciting and unexpected, the nearly four hundred poems in this volume represent the best of one of America’s most distinguished and original poets.

    Henrik Karlsson

    "Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

    Birgitta Johansson

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."

    Birgitta Lindh

    "Jag och min man delar familjeabonnemanget och har haft Storytel i 5-6 år. Vi är så nöjda med både appen och Readern. Här finns ett stort bokutbud som passar oss båda!"
