Selected Poems

Theodore Zev Weiss

This new selection of poems by one of America's most distinguished and original writers recovers work that is immensely contemporary and at the same time reaches back to the roots of his remarkable generation of poets. In highly wrought and passionately felt lines, Weiss explores paradox, history, and love. His distinctive, idiosyncratic poems, noted for their syntactic compression, linguistic playfulness, and characteristic linking of intimate experience and historic incident, are a major accomplishment. This volume is the definitive selection of his work.
