Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I'm not big on reading poetry, especially 20th century works. I have to admit, though, that Creeley offers up some thoughtful, well-crafted poems. I would never have picked this book up had it not been assigned reading, but I found some jewels in it that I enjoyed.
I love Creeley. Plus, he's the one that first turned me on to Thelonious Monk. For which I love him all the more.Favorite poem: "I Know a Man."
