About the Author

Robert Wrigley has become one of his generation's most accomplished poets, renowned for his irony, power, and lucid style and for his ability to fuse narrative and lyrical impulses. Like its namesake-Robert Burton's seventeenth-century examination of human thought's and emotions-Wrigley's new mostrar mais collection means to examine our world through the lens or melancholia. From imagined memorials to the war dead to insomniac chickens; from Descartes' lost daughter to a dreaming tree; from King Kong to Rush Limbaugh; and from Anna Karenina to a man named Lucy Doolin (short for Lucifer), these are poems that elegize and celebrate that most beautiful, exasperating, joyous, miserable, and perfectly imperfect of all creatures-the human being. mostrar menos

Conhecimento Comum



I didn't like this collection as well as "Anato." my of Melancholy and Other Poems." Still good poetry, but it didn't grab me as well, and one too many of them seemed to involve entrails or feces. I realize both are facts of life in the animal world, but they didn't strike me as the best fodder for poesy.

Wrigley's poetry is full of rich imagery, much of it from nature, and he combines this with a subtle wit.
