Abstract:

With his two previous books, a generous Selected Poems and The Vigil, C.K. Williams received major acclaim, including the PEN/Voelcker Award and the prestigious Berlin Prize. Repair represents an extraordinary outpouring of new work: nearly fifty poems, many of them in couplets and quatrains, together with a number of generous longer poems. His subjects, again, are love, death, the secrets kept among intimates, the waywardness of thought, and the violence and metaphoric power of the natural world. A long poem about the sixties, "King", broods over the mixed motives and misunderstandings of the period; the final poem defines, and in its way celebrates, the "invisible mending" of time and attentiveness to the thing itself.
