St. John's work has been distinguished by its intimacy and subtlety, an urgent sensibility and a true ear.--W. S. Merwin

Expressive, gestural, and image-laden, St. John's lines fairly hum with the pleasure of their making.--The New Yorker

Like the films of Godard and Rohmer, David St. John's poems evoke cryptic encounters in an ultramodern, often European setting.--John Ashbery

David St. John has been considered one of the most accomplished and innovative of all American poets. Here he gathers poems that first appeared in limited edition chapbooks and uncollected work. Spanning twenty-five years, the work refects the progression of a major voice in American letters.
