Crossing Borders

Poetryby Peter Scott

Crossing Borders presents the shorter work of acclaimed poet Peter Dale Scott. Scott––who can “achieve the quiet authority of the best later Williams” (London Times Literary Supplement) and who is renowned for his two epic, book-length poems Coming to Jakarta and Listening to the Candle––appears here on an inviting new scale. Whether considering nature, death, love, memory, or the classical Chinese masters, each of the fifty-six poems of Crossing Borders yields large pleasures within a small compass. This selected volume presents new dimensions of a poet “capable of true invention,” as Thom Gunn has remarked, “[and] of interest to all who read poetry”
