Of No Country I Know by David Ferry

Book Description

David Ferry's "Of No Country I Know: New and Selected Poems and Translations" provides a wonderful gathering of the work of one of the great American poetic voices of the twentieth century. It brings together his new poems and translations, collected here for the first time; his books "Strangers" and "Dwelling Places" in their entirety; selections from his first book, "On the Way to the Island"; and selections from his celebrated translations of the Babylonian epic "Gilgamesh," the "Odes of Horace," and of Virgil's "Eclogues." This is Ferry's fullest and most resonant book, demonstrating the depth and breadth of forty years of a life in poetry. "Though Ferry is perhaps best known for his eloquent translations of Horace and Virgil, "Of No Country I Know" demonstrates that he deserves acclaim for his own poetry as well." Carmela Ciuraru, "New York Times Book Review""

Bewilderment by David Ferry Bewilderment, Paperback (September 2012)

The author has fully realized both the potential for vocal expressiveness in his phrasing and the way his phrasing plays against - and with - his genius for metrical variation, thus becoming an amazingly flexible instrument of psychological and spiritual inquiry and which gives him access to an immense variety of feeling.
