Poetry. "Roger Mitchell's poems are superbly crafted--and at the same time always open to surprise and serendipity. The poems may begin in unassuming observation, but their ultimate aim is the clarity of thought that can only arise from a sensibility that is deeply self-aware but never self-important. These are wry, rueful, and subtly original poems--the work of a contemporary master."--David Wojahn.
