By Billy Collins
This special, limited edition celebrates Billy Collins’s years as U.S. Poet Laureate. Questions About Angels–one of the books that helped establish and secure his reputation and popularity during the 1990s–is remarkable for its wry, inquisitive voice and its sheer imaginative range.
Edward Hirsch selected this classic book for the National Poetry Series, and each of Collins’s poems–from his meditation on forgetfulness to his musings on the behavior of angels–is an exploration of imaginative possibilities. Whether reading him for the first time or the fiftieth, this collector’s edition is a must-have for anyone interested in the poet the New York Times calls simply “the real thing.”
