About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: Travels: Poems.

Publisher: Knopf, New York

Publication Date: 1993

Edition: First Printing of the First Edition.


A tight copy Fine in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. This copy is signed by Merwin. Merwin Employing a casually somber prosody of forward-falling lines and parachuted beginnings, and unified by what Elizabeth Bishop called "Questions of Travel," these poems unwind in long sentences reflecting long ideas. If the universe can be glimpsed in a grain of sand, then to Merwin a life of travel can be evoked by a single question. Thelong poems in this collection illustrate Merwin's theme of renewal through danger, while shorter poems find him overcoming fears of becoming lost or regretting culpability in the many ways we poison the earth. Sonorous as Poe, restless as Bruce Chatwin, Merwin offers new ways of seeing our vulnerable relations with each other and the world. Bookseller Inventory # 23806
