Try at Speech: New and Selected Poems by Brand: Triquarterly
Product Description
Winner, 1997 National Book Award for Poetry

A contemporary of Berryman, Bishop, and Lowell, William Meredith shared neither the bohemian excesses of the Beats nor the exhibitionist excesses of the "confessional" poets. Rather, he was known as a poet whose unadorned, formal verse marked him as a singular voice. Effort at Speech, the definitive collection of Meredith's life work, contains poems chosen by the author from throughout his career, as well as several new works and an essay by Michael Collier placing Meredith in his times.
Amazon.com Review
The New York Times Book Review wrote that William Meredith's poetry "suggests that we can recognize the hardest truths about ourselves and still live in the world." This collection, a summing up of Meredith's best writing over several decades, won the National Book Award, and is the sort of book readers will return to again and again for its considerable virtues: attention to craft, the ring of truth, and clarity in a world of muddle. Here's one favorite poem, titled "A Major Work": "Poems are hard to read / Pictures are hard to see / Music is hard to hear / And people are hard to love / But whether from brute need / Or divine energy / At last mind eye and ear / and the great sloth heart will move."
Product Description
Gathers together a half-century of prose pieces written by this esteemed poet
