Read full description of the books:
Anche se sono stati i racconti a renderlo celebre, Raymond Carver ha sempre alternato alla prosa la poesia, con risultati di uguale perfezione. «A volte le poesie di Carver funzionano come racconti, con tutti i loro elementi compressi ma intatti nella brevità dei versi. Altre volte si esprime in pura forma lirica, con parole piene di desiderio e sensibilità come quelle di un autore giovanissimo, ma in versi che possiedono l'incisività, la solidità e l'ironia che si guadagna a caro prezzo con l'esperienza» (Los Angeles Times).
Le poesie qui raccolte costituiscono un'autobiografia letteraria insieme intima e universale, una dichiarazione d'amore rivolta alla vita e al lavoro di scrittore.

Read information about the authorCarver was born into a poverty-stricken family at the tail-end of the Depression. The son of a violent alcoholic, he married at 19, started a series of menial jobs and his own career of 'full-time drinking as a serious pursuit', a career that would eventually kill him. Constantly struggling to support his wife and family, Carver enrolled in a writing programme under author John Gardner in 1958. He saw this opportunity as a turning point.
Rejecting the more experimental fiction of the 60s and 70s, he pioneered a precisionist realism reinventing the American short story during the eighties, heading the line of so-called 'dirty realists' or 'K-mart realists'. Set in trailer parks and shopping malls, they are stories of banal lives that turn on a seemingly insignificant detail. Carver writes with meticulous economy, suddenly bringing a life into focus in a similar way to the paintings of Edward Hopper. As well as being a master of the short story, he was an accomplished poet publishing several highly acclaimed volumes.
After the 'line of demarcation' in Carver's life - 2 June 1977, the day he stopped drinking - his stories become increasingly more redemptive and expansive. Alcohol had eventually shattered his health, his work and his family - his first marriage effectively ending in 1978. He finally married his long-term parter Tess Gallagher (they met ten years earlier at a writers' conference in Dallas) in Reno less than two months before he eventually lost his fight with cancer.
