Hard Night by Christian Wiman
Book DescriptionMake no mistake: Christian Wiman's poetic endeavors are ambitious. From the personal lyrics of solitude and loss to "Being Serious," the long poem that concludes "Hard Night," his poems examine emotions clearly, without sentimentality. A profound reverence for form and passion for poetry are evident in these artfully shaped poems that contain and find meaning in the unwieldy and inexplicable. Just as he is doing as the new editor of "Poetry," Wiman makes intellectually and emotionally engaged writing accessible to an expanding audience of readers.Christian Wiman is the author of two books and a widely published essayist and critic. He lives in Chicago, where he is editor of "Poetry" magazine.
