Description


Anselm Hollo hangs his poetic hat upon the sonnet, graciously inviting us into his conversation with poets and thinkers, both here and gone, on subjects that range from environmentalism to the WTO protests, from wars waged in Kosovo and Iraq to questions of creativity and mortality.

With trademark wit, acumen, and charm, Hollo's contribution to this multigenerational, international choir is one of the most important and enjoyable in contemporary letters.


Andrei Codrescu has said he awaits Hollo's new poems "with more eagerness than those of any other living poet," and Library Journal urges us not to "miss anything at all by this strong poet."
