Life Supports: New and Collected Poems

William Bronk

Bronk’s “rare gift” as an essay in the Voice Literary Supplement recently argued, “is the ability to float difficult truths on fleeting snatches of spoken breath”. Bronk, according to Compound Eye, “is one of America’s greatest living poets”. According to poet and critic Michael Heller, he is “one of our modern masters”. The new edition of Life Supports makes available once again one of the principal literary works of our time.
