Selected Poems

Selected Poems

by Simon Pettet
     
 

Poetry. "Like Beethoven's Bagatelles, Simon Pettet's short poems have a great deal to say, and their seemingly modest dimensions help rather than hinder his saying it. An unorthodox lucidity reminiscent of Schuyler, a certain English dappleness and an oriental concision blend in poetry whose sweet, complex fragrance is Pettet's secret"-- John Ashbery
