This is the definitive edition of the work of one of America's greatest poets, increasingly recognised as one of the greatest English-language poets of the twentieth century, loved by poets and readers alike. Bishop's poems combine humour 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. This new edition -- edited by Saskia Hamilton -- offers readers the opportunity to take in, entire, one of the great careers in twentieth-century poetry.
