Early in his career, Robert Creeley believed that his greatest contribution to literature would be in prose. Although he has since established himself as one of the most influential poets of the twentieth century, his remarkable body of prose work--instilled with a deep understanding of language and narrative form--remains an essential part of his oeuvre. In addition to his first book of short stories The Gold Diggers, a novel The Island, a radio play Listen, and Mabel: A Story, this omnibus edition includes two previously uncollected stories.
