Westerly free pdf A young soldier dons Napoleon's hat. An out-of-work man wanders Berlin, dreaming he is Peter the Great. The famous exile Dante finally returns to his native city to "hang his crown of laurels up". Familial and historical apparitions haunt this dazzling collection of poems by Will Schutt, the 2012 recipient of the prestigious Yale Series of Younger Poets award. Schutt's poems probe a vast emotional geography, and he expands their scope with elegant translations of works by some of Italy's most prominent twentieth-century poets. Contest judge Carl Phillips calls Schutt's debut volume "a book of uncommon wisdom", and he finds in the poems "Not only beauty, but a persuasive insight into what I call the lived life, the one that risks knowing what's difficult, despite the sorrow that so often follows the knowing".

About Will Schutt
