more details :

"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.

Robert Lax (1915-2000) published dozens of volumes of poetry and prose with small presses and worked as an editor for the "New Yorker," "Jubilee," and "PAX." From 1962 to the end of his life, he made his home in the Greek islands.

John Beer is the author of "The Waste Land and Other Poems" (Canarium, 2010), which won the Norma Farber First Book Award from the Poetry Society of America. For two years in the late 1990s, he served as literary assistant to Robert Lax. He currently lives and teaches in Oregon.
