Download E-books 31 Letters and 13 Dreams: Poems PDF

By Richard Hugo

Richard Hugo, whom Carolyn Kizer has called" essentially the most passionate, vigorous, and sincere poets living," right here bargains a rare choice of new poems, each a "letter" or a "dream." either letters and goals are designated manifestations of alone-ness; Hugo's exact senses of alone-ness, of locations, and of different individuals are the forces in the back of his distinctively American and more and more authoritative poetic voice. each one letter is written from a selected position that Hugo has made his personal (a "triggering town," as he has known as it in other places) to a chum, a fellow poet, an previous love. We learn over the poet's shoulder because the city triggers the mind's eye, the friendship is re-opened, the poet's selfhood is explored and illuminated. The "dreams" ensue by surprise (as goals do) one of the letters; their haunting pictures provide extra intensity to the poet's exploration. Are we overhearing them? who's the "you" that desires?
