Living in Paradise
New and Selected PoemsBook - 2001
After fifteen years of publishing silence, Pier Giorgio Di Cicco is back. Living in Paradise contains his best poetry from the seventies and eighties along with his first new poetry since he left the literary world to join a monastery. As Dennis Lee says in his penetrating afterword, 'It's a book we have sorely missed.' Readers will find generous selections from major works like Flying Deeper into the Century and Virgin Science, as well as from The Tough Romance, of which Lee says, 'There is nothing in our literature to match this sinewy lyric explosion, with its pyrotechnics, its philosophic edge, and its undertow of heartbreak.' With Living in Paradise, readers can rediscover a major poet, once again writing at the height of his powers.
