Item Description...
A collection of poems compiled by the author on his eightieth birthday reflect his unchanging theme of the wonders, difficulties, and pains of living fully in the world

Publishers Description
For over half a century, David Ignatow has crafted spare, plain, haunting poetry pf working life, urban images, and dark humor. The poetic heir of Whitman and William Carlos Williams, Ignatow is characteristically concerned with human mortality and human alienation in the world: the world as it is, defined by suffering and despair, yet at crucial times redeemed by cosmic vision and shared lives. His development as a poet is chronicled in Against the Evidence, title of the poem in part quoted above and meant by Ignatow as the metaphor for the whole body of his work.

Where his previous collections have been organized thematically, Ignatow here arranges his poems "according to the decade in which they were written...returning each to its chronological order." Against the Evidence charts the evolution of his themes from the earliest origin in the Thirties to their present extraordinary manifestation in a variety of poetic forms and modes.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Unsung hero of modern poetry  Sep 22, 2006
It is difficult to articulate the beauty of David Ignatow's poetry. Readers that find themselves running between the romanticisism and stark realism at a steady pace will find themselves quite at home in Ignatow's stark, moving style. For my part, Ignatow quickly became a favorite of mine, utterly altering my perspective on the possible success of modern poetry. This is his finest compilation.
