This is the definitive edition of the work of one of America's greatest poets, increasingly recognized as one of the greatest English-language poets of the twentieth century, loved by readers and poets alike. Bishop's poems combine humor and sadness, pain and acceptance, and observe nature and lives in perfect miniaturist close-up. The themes central to her poetry are geography and landscape - from New England, where she grew up, to Brazil and Florida, where she later lived - human connection with the natural world, questions of knowledge and perception, and the ability or inability of form to control chaos.
