Blizzard of one : poems by Mark Strand ( Book )
13 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 1,287 libraries worldwide
Strand's poems occupy a place that exists between abstraction and the sensuous particulars of experience. It is a place created by a voice that moves with unerring ease between the commonplace and the sublime. The poems are filled with "the weather of leavetaking," but they are also unexpectedly funny. The erasure of self and the depredations of time are seen as sources of sorrow, but also as grounds for celebration. This is one of the difficult truths these poems dramatize with stoicism and wit.

The weather of words : poetic invention by Mark Strand ( Book )
7 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 701 libraries worldwide
"From the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet, a collection of writings on the art and nature of poetry." "The pieces have a broad range and many levels. In one, we sit with the teenage Mark Strand while he reads for the first time a poem that truly amazes him: "You, Andrew Marvell" by Archibald MacLeish, in which night sweeps in an unstoppable but exhilarating circle around the earth toward the speaker standing at noon. The essay goes on to explicate the poem, but it also evokes, through its form and content, the poem's meaning - time's circular passage - with the young Strand first happening upon the poem, the older Strand seeing into it differently, but still amazed." "Among the other subjects Strand explores: the relationship between photographs and poems, the eternal nature of the lyric, the contemporary use of old forms, four American views of Parnassus, and an alphabet of poetic influences."--BOOK JACKET.

Edward Hopper's paintings are icons of American culture.

Because of the familiarity of his subject matter, Hopper has been pigeon-holed both historically, as an American realist, and thematically, as an artist of alienation.

New selected poems by Mark Strand ( Book )
4 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 534 libraries worldwide
More than twenty-five years after the appearance of his first Selected Poems, we at last have a magnificent new gathering of Mark Strand's work, one that spans and celebrates his entire remarkable career to date. From Sleeping with One Eye Open (1964) through the wonderful middle work that includes The Continuous Life (1990), and crowned by the Pulitzer Prize<U+2013>winning Blizzard of One (1998) and his most recent collection, Man and Camel (2006), this book makes a crucial selection of Strand's always beautiful and by turns humorous and melancholy poems. Over the decades Strand's identity as a poet has remained firm: he is existential, playful, mysterious, a poet of simple words and sentences that somehow add up to powerful universal experiences. With his incantatory language and radiant, commanding imagery, he creates mythic scenes and vistas that, however otherworldly, are ultimately of this earth: their underlying subject the pain and pleasure of being mortal. Here is an essential compilation from one of the most beloved and honored American poets at work today, without which no modern poetry collection is complete.
