All of Us: The Collected Poems

Descriere: Although he won his greatest acclaim as a writer of short stories, Raymond Carver began his career as a poet, and he continued to write poetry up until his death in 1988. With this stunningly rich collection the full extent of his achievement is finally evident. The more than 300 poems in All of Us possess all the virtues of Carver’s fiction: a keen attention to the physical world; an uncanny ability to compress vast feeling into discreet moments; a voice of conversational intimacy; and an unstinting sympathy for "all of us, all of us, all of us / … / immortal souls".This edition brings together, in order of their publication, all the poems of Carver’s four previous books, along with those posthumously published in No Heroics, Please. It also contains bibliographical and textual notes on individual poems; a chronology of Carver’s life and work; and a moving introduction by Carver’s widow, the poet Tess Gallagher.
