School of the Arts : Poems
With School of the Arts, Mark Doty's darkly graceful seventh collection, the poet reinvents his own voice at midlife, finding his way through a troubled passage. At once witty and disconsolate -- formally inventive, acutely attentive, insistently alive -- this is a book of fierce vulnerability that explores the ways in which we are educated by the implacable powers of time and desire in a world that constantly renews itself.

Memorable, essential, big hearted, joyous in music ... this is the finest book of poems by one of our finest poets. --Alan Shapiro"
