Funny by Jennifer Michael Hecht

Book Description

Winner of the 2005 Felix Pollak Prize in Poetry, selected by Billy Collins, a tour de force, "Funny" is a masterpiece of poetic, as well as philosophic and comic, invention. It creates a musing world where the issues are philosophical but the focus is always on people, on our most private ways of balancing our accounts. The poems are psychological; tender and humane, and somehow ruthless. This is poetry that swarms with ideas, that revels in rhythmic intricacy and literary references, but is also clear as a bell and tells marvelous stories.
