Merwin is the most influential American poet of the last half-century--an artist who has transfigured and reinvigorated the vision of poetry for our time. Migration: New and Selected Poems is that case. This 540-page distillation--selected by Merwin from fifteen diverse volumes--is a gathering of the best poems from a profound body of work, accented by a selection of distinctive new poems.As an undergraduate at Princeton University, Merwin was advised by John Berryman to "get down on your knees and pray to the muse every day." Migration represents the bounty of those prayers.
