The sure trajectory of Price's development as a poet is traced from the "inexplicable elation" of his adolescent discovery of Emily Dickinson, to a lengthy immersion in John Milton's "polyphonic language, with its ready access to the eloquence of plain speech," to the four-stress rhythm of the Anglo-Saxons and Coleridge on which his work often continues to depend - that rhythm being "closely allied to the wary economy and dignity of those kinds of speech that, in my lifetime, have been most concerned for lucid and memorable communication." Those familiar with Price's earlier work will welcome having in one volume such vivid contributions as "The Annual Heron" (from Vital Provisions), "House Snake" (The Laws of Ice) and "An Afterlife, 1953 - 1988" (The Use of Fire). All will be introduced for the first time to his latest poems from the journal called "Days and Nights." This notebook was begun in the early 1980s, shortly before Price was diagnosed with a grave illness; and the entries continue in the second of three parts of The Unaccountable Worth of the World, many of them contending with the death of friends - "the Dying Belt, as my father called it."

The Collected Poems - used book

ISBN: 0684860023

ID: 4177196

Since the 1950s, Reynolds Price has garnered literary fame for his fiction, plays, memoirs, and poems. Collected Poems brings together all of his published work as well as new poems from a journal titled "Day and Nights." Begun while Price was struggling with spinal cancer, this work, which is notably different in form and tone from earlier poems, is from a meditation on death and dying that is remarkable in its evenhanded emotions and lack of easy sentiment. Even with this weighty subject matter, Price makes words sing; we are moved again and again to celebrate life and the endless ability of art to counteract the harm that comes to us in the world of the flesh. anthologies,contemporary,literature and fiction,poetry Poetry, Scribner

Title:

The Collected Poems

ISBN:

The definitive anthology of Reynolds Price's accomplishments in poetry over four decades, "The Collected Poems" opens with a preface that discusses his beginnings, guides, and methods; it then includes his first three collections in their entirety -- "Vital Provisions, The Laws of Ice, " and "The Use of Fire" -- and adds a new volume, "The Unaccountable Worth of the World, " eighty-five more recent poems that offer striking departures as they continue to embody Price's close attention to the exterior and the interior worlds of a lengthening and unexpectedly complex life. "The Collected Poems" reveals, throughout, the accumulated variety of Reynolds Price's years as a poet -- the thematic breadth, formal steadiness, narrative vitality, and intense lyricism that have marked his work from the start. It is a landmark in a creative life that now includes more than thirty books -- poems, novels, plays, essays, translations -- and in the span of contemporary American verse.
