Sleeping It Off in Rapid City: Poems, New and Selected

August Kleinzahler

Language: English

Pages: 68

ISBN: 0374531730

Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub


The first broad retrospective of August Kleinzahler's career, Sleeping It Off in Rapid City gathers poems from his major works along with a rich portion of new poems that visit different voice registers, experiment with form and length, and confirm Kleinzahler as among the most inventive and brilliant poets of our time.

Travel--actual and imaginary--remains a passion and inspiration, and in these pages the poet also finds "This sanctified ground / Here, yes, here / The dead solid center of the universe / At the heart of the heart of America."
