about

This bold, wide-ranging collection -- his sixth book of poems -- demonstrates the unmistakable lyricism, fierce observation, and force of feeling that have made Mark Doty's poems special to readers on both sides of the Atlantic.

The poems in Source deepen Doty's exploration of the paradox of selfhood. They offer a complex, boldly colored self-portrait; their muscular lines argue fiercely with the fact of limit; they pulse with the drama of perception and the quest to forge meaning.

Editorial Reviews

In SOURCE, as in his five previous collections, Mark Doty’s most representative poems are tender, intimate, open, and true. They have their roots in the essential dailiness of this life, with its ritual round of small duties and encounters; and they open out, beyond the years of dread and anguish that devastated his generation, into a world of embracing sympathy, camaraderie, and understanding. With his clarity of vision and great heart, Doty stands among us as an emblematic and shining presence. (Stanley Kunitz)
