Mark Strand

Pulitzer Prize winner Mark Strand gives us a poem in 45 sections that — despite its wide range and shifting mood and tone — is all of a piece. Here Strand speaks candidly to the reader, conversing, offering urban wit and surrealist digressions that draw on our innermost sensations and the outermost reaches of our reality. A timeless pursuit of timeless questions, Dark Harbor centres on uncertainty and the known, family and isolation, the possible and the real. The poems in this book are easily recognizable as the world of one of our most interesting and influential poets. (From Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group
