Collected Poems.
by [Poetry] Roethke, Theodore.

Publisher Information:
Doubleday,, New York:: 1961..

A Fine copy in a Near Fine unclipped dust jacket with some light edgewear to the spine. Roethke is regarded as one of the most accomplished and influential poets of his generation. His work is characterized by its introspection, rhythm and natural imagery. He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for poetry in 1954 for his book The Waking, and he won the annual National Book Award for Poetry twice, in 1959 for Words for the Wind[3] and posthumously in 1965 for The Far Field. The reviewer for the Sewanee Review wrote: "Roethke: Collected Poems is a major book of poetry. It reveals the full extent of Roethke's achievement: his ability to perceive reality in terms of the tensions between inner and outer worlds, and to find a meaningful system of metaphor with which to communicate this perception... He is one of our finest poets, a human poet in a world that threatens to turn man into an object."
