Editorial Reviews

August Kleinzahler
For readers coming to Creeley's work for the first time, the format of a "Selected Poems" is the best way in, and this new Selected, supplanting a 1991 edition, is well chosen by Benjamin Friedlander. It includes a number of moving later poems not included in the earlier volume, many on the subject of aging, most notably the poem "When I Think" from Creeley's final collection, On Earth…[a] brilliant, essential volume.
—The New York Times
