Poetry. "'Heart' and 'Earth,' the obvious scenery as Simon's I-liner trips us through the decades, sometimes blind-embossing a snapshot, sometimes looking at himself observing it, sometimes spattering it.with apposite allusion. Take the ride and enjoy the scene"--Tom Raworth. "In these mostly unabashedly lyrical poems Simon Pettet flaunts his proud independence of current poetic fashions, like a dragonfly shimmering and hovering"--Gerrit Lansing. "The complete works so far of contemporary American and British poetry's most meticulous craftsperson. We dig the purity, dogged love, and artistic devotion of this rare personage. A highly recommended volume"--Alice Notley. "I highly recommend Simon Pettet's new collected, HEARTH. His poetry is always insightful, ardent, playful, right on the spot, and ahead of the current"--Joanne Kyger.
