Item Description...
With that three-line epigraph, David Ignatow declares the thrust and purpose of his compelling new book. Unlike his previous work, which was written largely in reaction to the world about him--the urban landscape with its clamor and violence and business pressures--these new poems turn inward. They explore and confirm the individual in his never ending search for awareness and realization: a process in which conflict, love, sorrow, and insight in the end come together into a precarious balance that is its own form of peace.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Rescue the Dead - Confessional masterpiece  Mar 21, 2001
David Ignatow was probably one of the most accomplished, yet unrecognized American poets of the twentieth century. During the course of his career, he was awarded the Bollingen prize by Yale and the Bollingen Foundation, as well as two Guggenheim fellowships. He was the editor of a number of literary reviews, and was a past president of the elite Poet's Society of America. His work spread over 50 years, and throughout his career he focused on the motif of death, dying, and life, and how they relate to existence. His poetic style is that of a storyteller: in his poetry the sentence has much greater significance than the line, and this becomes immediately apparent especially in this collection because he segments it into sections, complete with prologue. While I am not wholly familiar with other collections of the author's, I was almost disappointed with this anthology. Even though it contains fantastic poetry that is all centered around common themes, some of his poems in this work are too similar to other poems in the same collection to make them stand out. That is not to say, however, that it lacks any real gems: my favorites are the beautiful title poem "Rescue the Dead," the metaphysical study "An Ontology," and the comic "Love in a Zoo."
