Selected Poems, 1928-1958

Excerpt

Well over a third of this selection consists of recent poems that have not previously appeared in book form. The earlier poems reprinted here have been, in some instances, slightly revised. Rather than follow a chronological order I have arranged the poems in groups that bear some relevance to the themes, the arguments, that have preoccupied me since I began to write.

Certain of the new poems appeared originally in Poetry, New World Writing, The Nation, The New Republic, The Saturday Review, Partisan Review, The Hudson Review, Avon Book of Modern Writing, and Botteghe Oscure. The poems "The Waltzer in the House" and "Foreign Affairs" appeared originally in The New Yorker.
