"One of the great original voices of our times--a pilgrim in search of beautiful innocence."--Jack Kerouac

"Robert Lax's poems [prove] yet again that the gift to be simple is the gift to be free, that less is more, and that least may sometimes be most."--John Ashbery

"Poems (1962-1997)" gathers thirty-five years of Robert Lax's work, rarely published and largely composed in solitude on the island of Patmos. Compiled and edited by the poet's former assistant John Beer, this selection reflects--through meditative sequences in striking vertical columns--Lax's rigorous attention to the world around him, and his relentless aspiration to new ways of writing.
