9780062399205: Dome of the Hidden Pavilion: New Poems

The seventeenth book of verse from one of America's finest and most acclaimed contemporary poets--winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award.

Capturing his inimitable voice--provocative, amusing, understated, and riotous all at once--the poems in Dome of the Hidden Pavilion demonstrate James Tate at his finest. Innovative and fresh, they range in subject from a talking blob to a sobering reminiscence of a war and its aftereffects.

Though they are diverse in scope, a theme of dialogue and communication--and often miscommunication--links these poems. Accessible yet subtly surrealist, filled with dark wit, dry humor, and a deceptive simplicity, Dome of the Hidden Pavilion confirms Tate's continuing relevance as one of the most celebrated American poets of the modern age.

Review:

"Dome" is Tate at his restless, relentless best - leaving many questions unanswered, and no answer unquestioned. --Boston Globe"

The rare American poet who managed to make poems that were at once fanciful and grave, mundane and transcendent. . . . His work is singular in American poetry for marrying goofball humor and childish jouissance to a lyricism that never seems cheap or self-serious-an unusual achievement. --New York Times Book Review"
