More Winnowed Fragments
Poetry. Simon Pettet is among his generation's most highly regarded poets. Known to his peers as one of few whose control of the language is flawless, he is a master of his craft. MORE WINNOWED FRAGMENTS, Pettet's first book in a decade, is among the most important books of poetry of our time. "[Pettet] lives as though life were its own pleasure, which it is and must obviously be. He sounds those same simplicities of profound music Blake also knew. He moves with a deft and practiced quiet. `It is as though he were telling us/ that this small space/ contains the pattern for/ all eternity.' He speaks the truth"--Robert Creeley. Simon Pettet was born in England but has made his home on Manhattan's Lower East Side for the past three decades.
