Item Description...
For some forty years, Nathaniel Tarn has been celebrated as an extraordinary figure in American writing. His work in a variety of scholarly and literary genres has ranged from Maya ritual to Jewish mysticism, the monasteries of Burma to the arctic seas of Alaska. One of the founders of ethnopoetics, he has brought to poetry an almost limitless range of interests and a remarkable dexterity in both open and closed forms. As Eliot Weinberger has written, "What holds it together is Tarn's ecstatic vision, his continuing enthusiasm for the stuff of the world."

A major innovator in American poetry and ethnopoetics  Nov 11, 2002
Founding Editor of Cape Editions and the Cape Goliard Press, Nathaniel Tarn has published more than twenty-five books and his writings have ben translated into over a dozen languages. Selected Poems: 1950-2000 is a 347 page retrospective compilation of his verse drawing from his Random House, Penguin, New Directions, and Black Sparrow anthologies and collections, as well as from more limited and small press editions which are mostly out of print. A major innovator in American poetry and ethnopoetics, Selected Poems: 1950-2000 documents Nathaniel Tarn as a major American poet and a welcome addition to any personal or academic poetry collection. The Curtains: The leaves are coming down/the walls of my life/are not more solid//I hear the leaves coming down/at night they make the noise of footsteps/or the kisses of children/they fall like a curtain/between the leaves/bits of a sky we try to remember//"There was in that man/had he been left unshaken by his stars/a happy disposition"//On the other side of the curtain/the fathomless country lies about us/the farms/sitting like loaves among the fields/the animals/at home in their own breaths/needing no byres/and birds never a roost//We have seen it/we know it by heart/men of no season//I shall build on nothing/on nothing build my house/out of the iron nail remorselessly/hammered into the ground of this dead year//the nail so bald so cold/out of humiliation and the grinding feet/on nothing build my house/and when the leaves are fallen/and hammering is done/the curtains of the house will have been hung//Through which we glimpse/the place we shall inhabit/full void that memory
