The life of images

by Charles Simic | 23 March 2015
Synopsis
A collection of new and selected essays by the Pulitzer Prize-winner and former Poet Laureate. In addition to being one of America's most famous and commended poets, Charles Simic is a prolific and talented essayist. The Life of Images brings together his best prose work written over twenty-five years. A blend of the straightforward, the wry, and the hopeful, the essays in The Life of Images explore subjects ranging from literary criticism to philosophy, photography to Simic's childhood in a war-torn country. Culled from five collections, each work demonstrates the qualities that make Simic's poetry so brilliant yet accessible. Whether he is revealing the influence of literature on his childhood development, pondering the relationship between food and comfort, or elegizing the pull to return to a homeland that no longer exists, the legendary poet shares his distinctive take on the world and offers an intimate look into his remarkable mind.
