Item Description...
Continued is a selection of poems by Piotr Sommer, spanning his career to date. A kind of poetic utterance, these "talk poems" are devoid of any singsong quality yet faithfully preserve all the melodies and rhythms of colloquial speech. Events and objects of ordinary, everyday life are related and described by the speaker in a deliberately deadpan manner. Yet a closer look at the language he uses, with all its ironic inflections and subtle "intermeanings," reveals that the poem's "message" should be identified more with the way it is spoken than with what it says. The poems in this volume were translated into English with the help of other notable poets, writers, and translators, including John Ashbery, D.J. Enright, and Douglas Dunn.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Short Poems, Very Moving  May 15, 2005
Sommer's poems prove that words - words! - can make you fall in love. I only wish I could turn my own day-to-day memories into such touching and wryly funny vignettes. The poems are short, and not intimidating, yet they go deep. Definitely worth reading, even if you usually don't read poetry.
