Synopsis
A volume in the Poets on Poetry series. Poets on Poetry collects critical works by contemporary poets, gathering together the articles, interviews, and book reviews by which they have articulated the poetics of a new generation.

An eclectic array of essays, reviews, and memoir by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Charles Simic

Memory Piano is the latest contribution to the Poets on Poetry series from the brilliant and prolific Charles Simic. The astute critical eye and engaging voice that have characterized his earlier essay collections are evident throughout this volume. Simic not only examines other writers' work but also explores the outer and inner reaches of the human condition.

Included here are penetrating essays on April Bernard, Robinson Jeffers, Donald Justice, Pablo Neruda, Gerald Stern, and Charles Wright, among others, in addition to Simic's musings on Eastern European poetry and politics and a memoir piece, "The Singing Simics."

Charles Simic is an acclaimed poet, novelist, essayist, and teacher. Winner of a MacArthur Fellowship and a Pulitzer Prize, he is the author of more than sixty books, as well as numerous translations. He is Professor of English at the University of New Hampshire, where he has taught since 1973.
