In the literary world James Laughlin is best known as the publisher of New Direction Books. But he has also been a dedicated poet. His work is both modern -- rich in technical experiment -- and ancient -- grounded in the Greek and Latin poets. He is the youngest and most modern poet now writing in the United States. His work is notable for its range of subject matter, the originality of his invention, his restoration of the classical tradition, his wordplay, his satire, and the intensity of his love poems. This volume collects Laughlin's poems from 1935 to 1993.
