Now in paperback, a major career retrospective by the California Poet Laureate, Dana Gioia.

So much of what we live goes on inside

The diaries of grief, the tongue-tied aches

Of unacknowledged love are no less real

For having passed unsaid.

What we conceal Is always more than what we dare confide. 

Of the letters that we write our dead.

--from "Unsaid"

Dana Gioia has long been celebrated as a poet of sharp intelligence and brooding emotion with an ingenious command of his craft. 99 Poems: New & Selected gathers for the first time work from across his career, including many remarkable new poems. Gioia has not arranged this selection chronologically but instead has organized it by theme in seven sections: Mystery, Place, Remembrance, Imagination, Stories, Songs, and Love. The result is a book that reveals and renews the pleasures, consolations, and sense of wonder that poetry bestows. This description may be from another edition of this product.
