A former Poet Laureate of the United States, Robert Pinsky was born and raised in Long Branch, New Jersey. In addition to his books of poetry andThe Inferno of Dante, he has written prose works, including The Life of David andThe Sounds of Poetry.
Intense verbal music with a jazz feeling; invention against the grain of expectation; intelligence racing among materials with the variety of a busy streetthese have been the qualities of Robert Pinskys work since his first book,Sadness and Happiness (1975), celebrated for setting a new direction in American poetry. At that time, responding to a question about that book, Pinsky said: I would like to write a poetry which could contain every kind of thing, while keeping all the excitement of poetry.
That ambition was realized in a new way with each of his books, including the book-length personal monologueAn Explanation of America; the transformed autobiography of History of My Heart; the bestselling translationThe Inferno of Dante; and, most recently, the savage, inventive Gulf Music. That variety and renewal are represented in this brilliantly chosen volume.
