From the New World
Poems 1976-2014Book - 2015
An indispensable volume of poems, selected from almost four decades of work, that tracks the evolution of one of our most renowned contemporary poets, Pulitzer Prize-winner Jorie Graham. Much awaited and long needed, From the New World--a sequence of poems from Jorie Graham's prior eleven books--offers more than a retrospect of this major poet's work. This selection, including several revised and new poems, creates a startlingly fresh trajectory through books whose brilliance and far-reaching innovations have significantly influenced the landscape of contemporary poetry, both in the United States and abroad. Graham's unique achievement is surprisingly recast in this illuminating new book, in which the concerns of the later work are seen already urgently pressing in the earliest. From the New World--part spiritual autobiography, part survival manual--tracks what it is to attempt wakefulness in this moment of human history.
