For over half a century, David Ignatow has crafted spare, plain, haunting poetry of working life, urban images, and dark humor. The poetic heir of Whitman and William Carlos Williams, Ignatow is characteristically concerned with human mortality and human alienation in the world: the world as it is, defined by suffering and despair, yet at crucial times redeemed by cosmic vision and shared lives. The collection is organized by decade and by collections: Poems of the 1930's (from Poems 1934-1969); Poems of the 1940's (from Poems 1934-1969 and Poems 1948); Poems of the 1950's (from Poems 1934-1969 and The Gentle Weight Lifter); Poems of the 1960's (from Poems 1934-1969, , Figures of the Human, and Rescue Dead); Poems from the 1970's (Facing the Tree and Tread the Dark); Poems frrom the 1980's (New and Collected Poems, Whisper to the Earth and Leave the Door Open); Poems of the 1990's (Shadowing the Ground, Despite the Plainness of the Day: Love Poems).
