Staff Reviews

One of the most powerful books in recent years, Peace is the latest from one of our greatest contemporary poets.

— From John


Peace is haunted by personal and political history—by figures of Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Thoreau–by current senators and dead musicians, by speech and painting, by extraordinary and ordinary lives. Written as though at the threshold of a continual co-presence and comingling of peace and war, Peace moves just beyond outrage and anger to bring the reader to revelations and shifts of consciousness, to possible visions and sightings in the shattered yards of the global dream.
