Periplum and Other Poems by Peter Gizzi

Book Description

Periplum and other poems brings together Peter Gizzi's celebrated and influential first book, out of print for nearly a decade, with 60 pages of early and uncollected work, including the long poem "Music for Films." This new edition functions as a collected poems of Gizzi's work from 1987 to 1992. John Ashbery hailed Gizzi as "the most exciting poet to come along in quite a while." The vibrancy and immediacy of Gizzi's poems constitute 21st-century lyricism at its best, a richly complex music engaged with the crucial questions of and around contemporary culture. Michael Boughn wrote in the Poetry Project Newsletter that "Periplum reveals and shatters an unspeakably fragile world ...emerging with a new knowing, a knowing that matters, as in matters of life and death." His poems achieve a delicate balance of emotional and intellectual richness and the sense of poetry itself as a primary ground of human experience.
