Read full description of the books:

In his eighteenth collection, Charles Simic, the superb poet of the vaguely ominous sound and the disturbing, potentially significant image, moves closer to the dark heart of history and human behavior.

Simic understands the strange interplay between ordinary life and extremes, between reality and imagination, and he writes with absolute purity about those contradictory but simultaneous states of being or feeling: "Everything about you / My life, is both / Make-believe and real."

A profoundly important poet for our time, and a stunning book.

SECRET HISTORY

Of the light in my room:

Its mood swings,

Dark-morning glooms,

Summer ecstasies.

 

Spider on the wall,

Lamp burning late,

Shoes left by the bed,

I'm your humble scribe.

 

Dust balls, simple souls

Conferring in the corner.

The pearl earring she lost,

Still to be found.

 

Silence of falling snow,

Night vanishing without trace,

Only to return.

I'm your humble scribe.
