Now in paperback, a major career retrospective by the California Poet Laureate, Dana Gioia
"So much of what we live goes on inside "
"The diaries of grief, the tongue-tied aches"
"Of unacknowledged love are no less real"
"For having passed unsaid. What we conceal"
"Is always more than what we dare confide."
"Think of the letters that we write our dead."

from Unsaid

Dana Gioia has long been celebrated as a poet of sharp intelligence and brooding emotion with an ingenious command of his craft. "99 Poems: New & Selected" gathers for the first time work from across his career, including many remarkable new poems. Gioia has not arranged this selection chronologically but instead has organized it by theme in seven sections: Mystery, Place, Remembrance, Imagination, Stories, Songs, and Love. The result is a book that reveals and renews the pleasures, consolations, and sense of wonder that poetry bestows.
