Summary
"Robert Pinsky's poems have long been celebrated for their imaginative abundance, the uniqueness of their music, their originality and audacity. Gulf Music is his most daring, most politically inpassioned book. In the first line, political prisoners are studying in their cells. In the last line, an oracle is lost. Between this labor of knowledge and this chasm of forgetfulness, between the political and the personal, from the Persian Gulf to the Gulf of Mexico, Pinsky has created a poetic universe that encompasses the fanatical, the cultural, the tribal, the national, and the spiritual."--BOOK JACKET
