Book Awards

  • Winner of Pulitzer Prize Poetry Category 1978.

Book Description

The former Poet Laureate of the United States, Nemerov gives us a lucid and precise twist on the commonplaces of everyday life. "Howard Nemerov is a witty, urbane, thoughtful poet, grounded in the classics, a master of the craft. It is refreshing to read his work..."--Minneapolis Tribune "The world causes in Nemerov a mingled revulsion and love, and a hopeless hope is the most attractive quality in his poems, which slowly turn obverse to reverse, seeing the permanence of change, the vices of virtue, the evanescence of solidities and the errors of truth."--Helen Vendler, New York Times Book Review

Poetic Diction by Howard Nemerov Poetic Diction, Paperback (March 1978)

This study asks why we call a given grouping of words "poetry" and why these arouse "aesthetic imagination". It explores concerns fundamental to the understanding and appreciation of poetry, including the nature of metaphor, the difference between verse and prose, and the essence of meaning.
