Item description for Dumb Luck (American Poets Continuum) by Sam Hamill...

Influenced by the Chinese and Japanese masters, Hamill's Dumb Luck affirms his ability to give us back the world and all its vicissitudes. Here you will find Zen fables, elegies and haiku, bluesy riffs, and poems that celebrate births, marriages, the liberating exile of the poet, as well as verses that present the dumb luck that has peppered the poet's life.

Sam Hamill is the author of a dozen volumes of original poetry, as well as three collections of essays. He is the Founding Editor of Copper Canyon Press, director of the Port Townsend Writers' Conference, and contributing editor at The American Poetry Review.

More About Sam Hamill

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Sam Hamill is the author of more than a dozen collections of poetry, including Destination Zero: Poems 1970- 1995 (1995), DUMB LUCK (2002), Almost Paradise: New and Selected Poems and Translations (2005), and Measured by Stone (2007). Influenced by Ezra Pound, William Carlos Williams, Kenneth Rexroth, Denise Levertov, and Hayden Carruth, Hamill "presents a model of honest, consistent, undisguised political engagement: he articulates not only a vision of peace with justice, not only his relish for work to achieve that vision, but his sense of the role that poetry can play," as Publishers Weekly noted in its review of Measured by Stone. Hamill has also published several collections of essays and numerous translations. With Bill O'Daly and Tree Swenson, he co-founded the all-poetry Copper Canyon Press in Denver, Colorado. Copper Canyon later joined with the nonprofit arts organization Centrum in Port Townsend, Washington. Hamill was editor-printer for the press from 1972 until 2004.

Sam Hamill currently resides in Port Townsend, in the state of Washington.

Reviews - What do customers think about Dumb Luck (American Poets Continuum)?

Wonderful poetry!  Apr 2, 2004
Hamill's poetry is accessible and breathtaking at the same time. There are poets I admire, and there are poets that I enjoy reading. Hamill is both. This volume was the first of his that I inhaled, and I felt like dancing after every poem. Recommended.
