Evolution - the first all-new collection of poems by Eileen Myles since the selected volume I Must Be Living Twice - finds the celebrated writer at the forefront of American literature and culture, crafting radically introspective work in the characteristically exuberant style that the New York Times called 'one of the essential voices in American poetry.'

Following the critically acclaimed Afterglow (a dog memoir), the poet continues their lifelong inquiry into the mystery and miracle of human life, in its mutability and temporality. 'I suppose / I'm afraid / of forever,' Myles writes in 'Angel', and this existential restlessness pervades the collection. With incisive humour and heartfelt honesty, these poems reconcile the body's brevity in light of time's limitlessness, exemplified in the title piece, 'Evolution'.
