Most widely held works by Robert Creeley
The collected poems of Robert Creeley, 1945-1975 by Robert Creeley( Book )
14 editions published between 1982 and 2008 in English and held by 1,805 libraries worldwide
This definitive collection showcases thirty years of work by one of the most significant American poets of the twentieth century, bringing together verse that originally appeared in eight acclaimed books of poetry ranging from "Hello: A Journal" (1978) to "Life & Death" (1998) and "If I were writing this" (2003). Robert Creeley, who was involved with the publication of this volume before his death in 2005, helped define an emerging counter-tradition to the prevailing literary establishment - the new postwar poetry originating with Ezra Pound, William Carlos Williams, and Louis Zukofsky and expanding through the lives and works of Charles Olson, Robert Duncan, Allen Ginsberg, Denise Levertov, and others. "The Collected Poems of Robert Creeley", 1975-2005 will stand together with "The Collected Poems of Robert Creeley", 1975-2000 as essential reading for anyone interested in twentieth-century American poetry

On earth : last poems and an essay by Robert Creeley( Book )
9 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 687 libraries worldwide
Robert Creeley, one of the most significant American poets of the twentieth-century, helped define an emerging counter-tradition to the prevailing literary establishment--a postwar poetry originating with Ezra Pound, William Carlos Williams, and Louis Zukofsky. When Creeley died in March 2005, he was working on what was to be his final book of poetry. In addition to more than thirty new poems, many touching on the twin themes of memory and presence, this moving collection includes the text of the last paper Creeley gave--an essay exploring the late verse of Walt Whitman. Together, the essay and the poems are a retrospective on aging and the resilience of memory that includes tender elegies to old friends, the settling of old scores, and reflective poems on mortality and its influence on his craft. On Earth reminds us what has made Robert Creeley one of the most affectionately regarded poets of our time.--From publisher description
Echoes by Robert Creeley( Book )
10 editions published between 1982 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 668 libraries worldwide
In his new collection of poems, Robert Creeley continues to explore the limits and resonances, public and personal, of age. Indeed, the title itself, Echoes, recurs throughout his poetry of the last two decades. Thus "Sonnets" speaks out against the waste of human violence and dogmatism ("Come round again the banal/belligerence almost a/flatulent echo of times"), while the book's closing sequence, "Roman Sketchbook," contemplates with wit and affection the measure of one's literal body in echoing time and place. Creeley as ever articulates the givens of life, its daily fact and possibility, with careful, concise invention. What wind's echo, uplifted spirit? Archaic feelings flood the body. Ah! accomplished

Life & death by Robert Creeley( Book )
6 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 575 libraries worldwide
If youth asks the mirror, "Am I the fairest?" then age, in Robert Creeley's voice asks, "Do you remember me?" And the poems of Life & Death are the mirror's answers: a collage of recollection and salvage, a gathering-in before winter's night. The first section, "Histoire de Florida," is a partial autobiography at a specific time and place. It captures the poet in an engaged and highly compacted moment that deliberately echoes Wallace Stevens's "The Anecdote of the Jar" - a reverberation from the poet's youth. The second section, "Old Poems, Etc.," contains classic reflections - from the doggerel humor of "'Present (Present)'" to parody of early Metaphysical models like George Herbert in "Echo's Arrow." The capstone of this section is the sustained "The Dogs of Auckland," which focuses impressions from an extended time spent in that city and becomes a resume of age and its effects, made vividly objective by the contrasting culture of New Zealand. Artists have always proved decisive company for the poet, and the third section contains the texts of three collaborations with the painter Francesco Clemente
