From the publisher
The seventeenth book of verse from one of America's finest and most acclaimed contemporary poets-winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award.Capturing his inimitable voice-provocative, amusing, understated, and riotous all at once-the poems in Dome of the Hidden Pavilion demonstrate James Tate at his finest. Innovative and fresh, they range in subject from a talking blob to a sobering reminiscence of a war and its aftereffects.Though they are diverse in scope, a theme of dialogue and communication-and often miscommunication-links these poems. Accessible yet subtly surrealist, filled with dark wit, dry humor, and a deceptive simplicity, Dome of the Hidden Pavilion confirms Tate's continuing relevance as one of the most celebrated American poets of the modern age.
