Synopsis

“Kooser is straightforward, possesses an American essence, is humble, gritty, ironic and has a gift for detail and a deceptive simplicity.”—Seattle Post-Intelligencer

This signed, limited edition celebrates the Pulitzer Prize-winning collection by former Poet Laureate Ted Kooser.

Delights and Shadows is one of the best-selling poetry books in America, and Ted Kooser—editor of the weekly column “American Life in Poetry”—is a beloved poet. While serving as poet laureate, he stated, “I hope to interest more people in poetry. I hope to perform a service as a poet, giving people something they can use.” Kooser certainly succeeded.

While Delights and Shadows has been lavishly reviewed in major media throughout the country, reader responses about the book have poured into Copper Canyon Press. A reader from rural New York wrote, “Kooser’s tenth book of poems is a work of profound insight into the core of human existence and feeling.” Another from Virginia wrote, “An instantly attractive collection by a poet unknown to me, who sees remarkable things in everyday objects. Today I ordered five more of his previous books at a local store.”

Ted Kooser, author of thirteen books of poetry and nonfiction, is the former poet laureate of the United States. He lives in Nebraska.
