The long-awaited fourth collection by one of America's foremost poets
O Lord of indirection and ellipses,ignore our prayers. Deliver us from distraction.Slow our heartbeat to a cricket's call. --from "Prophecy"
Pity the Beautiful is Dana Gioia's first new poetry book in over a decade. Its emotional revelations and careful construction are hard won, inventive, and resilient. These new poems show Gioia's craftsmanship at its finest, its most mature, as they make music, crack wise, remember the dead, and in a long, central poem even tell ghost stories.
