Book Title: Winter Stars

Author: Larry Levis

Book Description:

Larry Levis' poetry—and this book in particular—has provided me, from early on in my work with poetry, with an awareness of just how much language can do in the hands of a master. The way in which both the structures and the forms of his poems enhance—and sometimes challenge—the meaning contained in the syntax of the sentences contained within the structures and forms of the poems continues to teach me about what is possible in the art of poetry. Larry Levis is one of the most important poets of the latter half of the twentieth century. A poet we lost much too soon.
