The collected works of Adrienne Rich, whose poetry is “distinguished by an unswerving progressive vision and a dazzling, empathic ferocity” (New York Times). Adrienne Rich was the singular voice of her generation and one of our most important American poets. She brought discussions of gender, race, and class to the forefront of poetical discourse, pushing formal boundaries and consistently examining both self and society. This collected volume traces the evolution of her poetry, from her earliest work, which was formally exact and decorous, to her later work, which became increasingly radical in both its free-verse form and feminist and political content. The entire body of her poetry is on display in this vast volume, including the National Book Award–winning Diving Into the Wreck and her prize-winning Atlas of the Difficult World. The Collected Poems of Adrienne Rich gathers and memorializes all of her boldly political, formally ambitious, thoughtful, and lucid work, the whole of which makes her one of the most prolific and influential poets of our time.

Life through My Glasses, a new collection of poems by Herbert Siegel, combines two additional art forms for added dimension and meaning, resulting in a unique approach, more functional than poetic icons of earlier eras. This, his fourth collection, presents a contemporaneously written continuum of life ensconced in many forms of poetry, including universal observations of nature, ancient storytellers, gastronomy, and biographies - usually ending with a touch of sardonic humor. "...Siegel's book contains poetry written in various formats. He experiments with the Japanese haiku, senryu, and tanka and masterfully constructs a triptych with the title piece in the collection. The bulk of his work, though, is in the style of rhymed verse popularized by poets such as Edgar Guest...True to the definition of a poet laureate, he is also unafraid to comment on current events and political figures in his verse. Yet like most accomplished poets he is a keen observer of the natural world and prone to introspection and philosophy. It is evident that some of the pieces in this collection were written merely to amuse the author and his readers, but a few such as "Pay Me No Mind” border on the sublime." ---The US Review of Books "Life Through My Glasses" is a winner of the coveted GOLD SEAL AWARD OF LITERARY EXCELLENCE. ---Trafford Publishing "Life through My Glasses is beautiful ... an intriguing form combining poems in an unusual shape, comparing life and nature ... nature and resurrection ... life immortal. I cannot add or take away from this masterpiece." ---Yvonne Byrd, 2006 Senior Poet Laureate of Texas "Life through My Glasses reads beautifully, Herb. It's a grand finale for your book ... a masterpiece." ---Dr. Kim Gorman, University of Kentucky, University of Houston "I have to say I feel enriched and inspired having read through your work. Thank you so much!" ---Andrea Strudensky, DLitt, Faculty, Vanier College, Montreal, Quebec Herbert Siegel, PhD, has been a CEO of major public companies and the recipient of numerous professional certifications, awards, and publications. He also holds degrees in business and international law. Previous collections include Poems From My Drawer (2007) and Poems For The Universe (2009). His recent awards, among others, include 2009 New York State Senior Poet Laureate; the Ellen La Forge Foundation Poetry Prize, published by Grolier of Cambridge; Sketchbook; the Voice of the Bards; and the 2010 Award of Excellence from the Poetry Institute of Canada.

The landmark collected work of one of the greatest poets of the 20th century How splendid and impressive to have a complete, clear, and unobstructed view of Denise Levertov at last. Covering more than six decades and including, chronologically, every poem she ever published, Levertov’s Collected Poems presents her marvelous, ground breaking work in full. Born in England, Denise Levertov emigrated in 1948 to the United States, where she was acclaimed by Kenneth Rexroth in the New York Times as “the most subtly skillful poet of her generation, the most profound, the most modest, the most moving.” A staunch antiwar activist and environmentalist, and the winner of the Robert Frost Medal, the Shelley Memorial Award, and the Lannan Prize, Denise Levertov inspired generations of writers. New Directions is proud to publish this landmark collected poems of one of the greatest poets of the twentieth century.
