Poetry. CALLER AND OTHER PIECES is Raworth's first collection since his COLLECTED POEMS of 2003. Comprised of 14 pieces with the long poem "Caller" at its center, this book evinces a striking formal and tonal variety--from the classic Raworth Rhythmic and roving perceptual matrix, to the comedic one-liner, to the parodic end-rhyme, the visual, and even a bit of nouveau-zaum. CALLER AND OTHER PIECES again demonstrates that Tom Raworth's accomplishment is essential to the poetry of our time.
