about

Comprised of ironic, unsentimental poems on subjects of everyday life, Poems is the 57th volume of the Yale Series of Younger Poets.
 
The first of seven books of poetry published during Dugan’s lifetime, Poems examines the unusual details of everyday subjects, including waterfalls, house plants, love, war, religion, and the Irish. Explorations inevitably arouse feelings of alienation, defeat, despair, and disenchantment. The poems are also marked by casual humor, mockery, and satire, which produce some of its strongest effects. The tone and style on display in this first book characterize all of Dugan’s subsequent poetry.
Alan Dugan (1923–2003) was an American poet. Poems, his first publication, won the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry. His last book, Poems Seven: New and Complete Poetry; won the National Book Award and the Lannan Literary Award.
