Centennial celebration sale for Robert Lax

November 30th marks the centennial of poet Robert Lax's birthday. To celebrate, we're offering a 40% discount on his most recent selected, Poems (1962-1997). The sale ends on Friday, December 4th.

Poems (1962-1997) gathers 35 years of Robert Lax’s work, rarely published and largely composed in solitude on the island of Patmos. Compiled and edited by the poet’s former assistant John Beer, this selection reflects–through meditative sequences in striking vertical columns–Lax’s rigorous attention to the world around him, and his relentless aspiration to new ways of writing. The New York Times called Lax one of "America's greatest experimental poets, a true minimalist who can weave awesome poems from remarkably few words."
