Inner Voices: Selected Poems, 1963-2003
|Publisher:||Farrar, Straus and Giroux|
The poems of Pulitzer Prize-winner Richard Howard are noted for their unique dramatic force and for preserving, in their graceful, exquisitely wrought lines, human utterance at its most urbane. Here, in the first volume to draw together material from Howard’s twelve books of poems, readers can fully appreciate the erudite nuances of his lyric poetry and the superb human and historical bravura of his dramatic monologues and imagined conversations among famous figures. Inner Voices leaves no doubt as to why Howard has been “a powerful presence in American poetry for 40 years” (The New York Times Book Review).
