Very Good In Worn Dustjacket. hardcover. keywords: Poetry America. inventory # 18321. FROM THE PUBLISHER-THE SALT GARDEN (1955) marks a shift in the tone, style, and themes of Nemerov's poetry. Although his earlier poems were often abstract, esoteric, formal, and derivative of the works of such poets as T. S. Eliot, W. H. Auden, and Wallace Stevens, the poems in this volume are less rigid, impersonal, and bitter; they explore such subjects as perception, nature, and the duality of man. With this volume, Nemerov reached what many critics consider his poetic maturity; THE SALT GARDEN was also the first verse collection to bring Nemerov widespread critical and popular attention. Howard Nemerov (1920-1991) was an American poet, critic, novelist, short story writer, nonfiction writer, essayist, editor, and playwright. Nemerov is known for a diverse body of poetry that has been praised for its technical excellence, intelligence, and wit. Writing verse in a variety of forms and styles-including lyrical, narrative, and meditative-Nemerov examined religious, philosophical, scientific, and existential concerns. Although Nemerov frequently has been labeled an academic poet because of his detached stance, his firm grounding in formal verse, and the moralistic tone of some of his work, he often incorporated irony, satire, and colloquial language into his works. In addition to winning numerous prizes for his verse, including the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award for THE COLLECTED POEMS OF HOWARD NEMEROV (1977), Nemerov was appointed poet laureate of the United States in 1988.
