About This Item

New York: Random House, 2002. Hardcover. Very good/very good. 120p. 3rd printing. Signed by poet on title page. Cover edges lightly sunned. Collins served as United States Poet Laureate from 2001 to 2003 and New York State Poet Laureate from 2004 to 2006. Jacket design by Allison Saltzman. (8-1/2"x5-5/8")


Nine Horses, Billy Collins's first book of new poems since Picnic, Lightning in 1998, is the latest curve in the phenomenal trajectory of this poet's career. Already in his forties when he debuted with a full-length book, The Apple That Astonished Paris, Collins has become the first poet since Robert Frost to combine high critical acclaim with broad popular appeal. And, as if to crown this success, he was appointed Poet Laureate of the United States for 2001--2002, and reappointed for 2002--2003. What accounts for this remarkable achievement is the poems themselves, quiet meditations grounded in everyday life that ascend effortlessly into eye-opening imaginative realms. These new poems, in which Collins continues his delicate negotiations between the clear and the mysterious, the comic and the elegiac, are sure to sustain and increase his audience of avid readers.From the Hardcover edition.
