This book is the exploration by a distinguished American poet and critic of his own lifelong fascination with the work of Edgar Allan Poe. Unlike any other book on Poe, this is for the countless scores of readers who have Poe under their skins, who have grown up knowing "The Raven," "Annabel Lee," "The Gold Bug," "The Murders in the Rue Morgue," "The fall of the House of Usher"--And who have never been able to escape from their spell. -- From cover

Beyond silence : selected shorter poems, 1948-2003 by Daniel Hoffman( Book )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 478 libraries worldwide
Accepting an award for poetry from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, Daniel Hoffman wrote, "Amid private sufferings and outrage at the brutalities of public life, it is gaiety that sustains us, and love, and the imagination's power to create from both deprivation and delight." This collection embodies those emotions and that imaginative power. Hoffman's verse has always exulted in the resources of language, as sensuous in sound as in response to the natural world. Beyond Silence, to be published on Hoffman's eightieth birthday, presents his shorter poems culled from eight previous collections, plus several new poems. Here, rather than in chronological order, they appear thematically and invite the reader to partake of the pleasures that characterize this distinguished poet's verse: "clarity, grace where desired, accuracy of visual detail and dialogue, and a formal mastery so deft that playfulness comes easily" (Fred Chappell)

The whole nine yards : longer poems by Daniel Hoffman( Book )
6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 196 libraries worldwide
"The Whole Nine Yards offers poems spanning the career of former Poet Laureate Daniel Hoffman. These explore violence and transcendence in realistic, gothic, and comic modes, as they tell of war, cold war, domestic violence, bureaucratic oppression, and a compassionate rescue at sea. Searching and lyrical suites celebrate the births of children, recoup a year in wartime France, and meditate on life and death, the seen and the unseen. Hoffman aims to share the pleasures of dramatizing language, theme, and form in dimensions new to his work. The result is a compelling collection from a distinguished poet."--BOOK JACKET
