Nightworks: poems, 1962-2000
During the past forty years Marvin Bell has been one of poetry's true innovators. With each book his writing seems in constant motion, always developing ideas and exploring new literary territory. His voice changes not to fit current literary fashion, but to serve his art, to serve the wide--and often entertaining--range of subjects and ideas at the heart of his poems.
"Nightworks" is a refreshing retrospective on the distinguished poet and educator's work. It collects poems from a dozen previous books--together with forty-two new poems--and makes available poems from volumes long out of print, including groundbreaking books such as "The Escape Into You" and National Book Award finalist "Stars Which See, Stars Which Do Not See." It amply demonstrates why Bell's poetic voice has been continually praised for its lucidity and eloquence, and has been rightly characterized as ambitious without pretension.
"You are not beautiful, exactly.
"One of our finest and most acclaimed poets."--"Booklist"
Marvin Bell's poetry has appeared in scores of anthologies and in magazines such as "The New Yorker" and "Atlantic Monthly." He has lectured and read at universities in 45 states and territories, is the recipient of the Lamont Award and teaches in the Iowa Writer's Workshop.
