James Merrill Poems Hardback
Part of the Everyman's Library POCKET POETS series
James Merrill once called his poetic works 'chronicles of love and loss', and in twenty books written over four decades he used the details of his life - comic and haunting, exotic and domestic - to shape a compelling, sometimes intensely moving, personal portrait.
Sophisticated, witty and ironic, his poetry also engages passionately with topical issues - war, terrorism, political corruption, AIDS, climate change and the destruction of nature.
An admirer of Wallace Stevens, Elizabeth Bishop and W.
H. Auden, Merrill, like them, has left a legacy that will speak to readers for years to come.
