M and Other Poems

John Peck

John Peck is a member of the remarkable generation of poets, including Robert Hass, Robert Pinsky, and James McMichael, who studied with Yvor Winters at Stanford in the 1960s. His recent work expresses a sharp sense of vulnerability and of the tenacity of human life, both natural and moral.

Reviews
"Peck has established himself . . . as a major poet, opening up territory no one else has attempted."
--Clive Wilmer, Times Literary Supplement
"The gift for making language itself into feeling rather than merely feeling's vehicle is just that, a gift. Peck has it." --Poetry
"Peck is one of the best poets in the country, and M is his masterpiece." --Notre Dame Review

"Peck's densely allusive and highly cerebral work rewards the rigorous reading that it demands." --Publishers Weekly
