Selected Poems, 1969-1981

This generous selection from six previous books, with several uncollected poems, shows the consistency of [Shelton's] career and displays a pictorial gift that is truly remarkable: flowing through line after line, seemingly inexhaustible streams of images build an intelligible surrealistic vision, evoking emotional states with great subtlety.

Shelton assembles the best of his previous work together with a selection of new poems.

240 Pages, 5.5 x 8 in.
