A new collection of poems focused on the poem as structure, poem as house, by award winning poet, Robert Kelly.
This book reflects a year or so of Robert Kelly’s “concentration on the poem as structure, poem as house. Stanza is the key; it means ‘room’ in Italian, each stanza different in shape and function, like the rooms in a house-every room in the house is, must be, different: The kitchen is not the bedroom. So, stanzas serve varied functions, welcome differing guests of meaning and music.” — Robert Kelly
