Poetry. Charles North's poetry has received numerous honors, including two NEA grants and four Fund for Poetry Awards. In his new collection CANDENZA, he displays all the qualities that made the Washington Post call him "one of the most memorable contemporary poeets. "In CANDENZA, he moves in, around, and about everyday life with an improvisatory elan that soon becomes an almost familiar tune, sung to the friend you become every time you lend an ear. The direction is true North; the vintage just right"—Charles Bernstein.
