The former Poet Laureate of the United States, Nemerov gives us a lucid and precise twist on the commonplaces of everyday life.

The Collected Poems of Howard Nemerovwon both the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize in 1978.

Howard Nemerov is a witty, urbane, thoughtful poet, grounded in the classics, a master of the craft. It is refreshing to read his work. . . . —Minneapolis Tribune

The world causes in Nemerov a mingled revulsion and love, and a hopeless hope is the most attractive quality in his poems, which slowly turn obverse to reverse, seeing the permanence of change, the vices of virtue, the evanescence of solidities and the errors of truth. —Helen Vendler,New York Times Book Review
