Not yet rated | write a review

Throughout his career A.M. Klein struggled to define for himself the role of the poet in the contemporary world. Deeply rooted in the traditions of Judaism, and at the same time powerfully attracted by the freedom and scope of international modernism, he sought to reconcile past and present, community and creative individuality. Whether or not he finally achieved his own high aims, it was, in his own words, ''something merely to entertain them.'' The result was a body of work immensely rich and varied in tone, language, cultural resonance.

This collection of eighty-four poems offers a representative sampling of Klein''s finest poetry, while taking into account the changing critical discourse of the last fifty years. Anyone interested in experiencing the full range of Klein''s poetic achievement, or in understanding the complex nature of the poet, need look no further than this eminently readable volume.
