Bink Noll: Selected Poems
“Full of astonishingly good poems which tease or surprise us into meditations" – Robert Towers
For those few who remember Bink Noll, he remains the Vermeer of American poetry, with a delicacy of hand and eye that again and again presents us with domestic perceptions that have what Melville called “the shock of recognition”. In a voice that is rich and accomplished, Noll offers us lessons in alertness that are, unlike most lessons, delightful.
"This collection is a wonderful tribute to a unique and unjustly neglected voice. Bink Noll has that rare gift of making the ordinary extraordinary. In his poetry, the domestic detail becomes touchingly relevant to us all." Adam Feinstein, translator & biographer of Pablo Neruda
