A Swallow Press Book

Selected Poems

By Lucien Stryk

“[Lucien Stryk] is an American master, guiding us easily again and again to the ordinary world we tend to look past and wherein is lodged the undiscovered unity of all things.”

Anthony Piccione, Chicago Review

“This is a complete volume, one in which the poet exhibits major talents…. Poems gives us not only Stryk the poet but also Stryk the father, soldier, scholar, traveler and lover in this shimmering, unaffected affair with words. In American poetry, we have not heard from such a Renaissance man in a long time.”

G. E. Murray, Chicago Daily News

Lucien Stryk’s poetry is spare and quiet, but intensely powerful. Selected Poems brings together nearly all his published work, including all the poems from Notes for a Guidebook, The Pit and Other Poems, and Awakening, as well as new and previously uncollected poems.

Lucien Stryk is the prize–winning author and editor of more than two dozen volumes of poetry, translations, and edited collections.
