Item description for Fearful Pleasures: The Complete Poems, 1959-2007 by Lewis Turco...

This is the long-awaited collection of Lewis Turco's poems, comprising a dozen books in one. Rhina P. Espaillat, poet, concludes her Foreword to the book with these words: "And how fortunate the reading public is to have this wealth of writing by one of the countrys most interesting poets now in one volume, not so much a book as a library of books, composed by the many persons who inhabit this haunted and perceptive poet! It belongs on the bookshelf of every reader willing to risk the joy and anguish of hearing the world, having it speak to him as vividly, ambiguously and honestly as it speaks to Lewis Turco."

Reviews - What do customers think about Fearful Pleasures: The Complete Poems, 1959-2007?

From The UConn Magazine, Vol. 8, No. 2, Summer 2007.  Jan 12, 2008
This is an unsigned review that I lifted from a magazine published by my Alma Mater, the University of Connecticut:

"Lewis Turco is a poet's poet. A respected teacher for nearly four decades at Cleveland State University and the State University of New York at Oswego, he wrote The Book of Forms: A Handbook of Poetics, which is known as the poet's Bible. His writing has been honored with the nation's most respected poetry awards. Fearful Pleasures brings together Turco's life's work of rich imagery, captured moments, melancholy thoughts, ghosts, cats, the rooms of a house and much more. In one of his more daring works, Turco takes phrases and entire lines from letters written by Emily Dickinson and weaves them together into poems. Through more than 600 pages, he still is offering lessons on poetry." Fearful Pleasures: The Complete Poems, 1959-2007Fearful Pleasures: Complete Poems, 1959-2006
