Memoir of the Hawk, Tate's first collection of poetry since 1997, includes 172 new poems that fuel his reputation as a virtuoso master of language. They also further refine the distinct voice he established early in his career with his brilliantly constructed treatment of imaginative, surreal situations and bring this voice to a new level. At times acerbic, and always irrepressibly comic, Tate's poems challenge the words from which they are carved and constantly reinvent our relationship to language. --HarperCollins Publishers / Ecco Press
