American melancholy : poems

Oates, Joyce Carol, 1938-2023
Books
A new collection of poetry from an American literary legend, her first in twenty-five years. Joyce Carol Oates is one of our most insightful observers of the human heart and mind, and, with her acute social consciousness, one of the most insistent and inspired witnesses of a shared American history. She has always been a faithful writer of poetry. 'American Melancholy' showcases some of her finest work of the last few decades. Covering subjects big and small, and written in an immediate and engaging style, this collection touches on both the personal and political. Loss, love, and memory are investigated, along with the upheavals of our modern age, the reality of our current predicaments, and the ravages of poverty, racism, and social unrest.
