The poems of Mark Strand -- 1999 Pulitzer-Prize winning poet as well as respected painter -- occupy a space between abstraction and the sensuous particulars of experience. One of the true contemporary masters of the art and craft of poetry, his voice moves with perfect ease between the sublime and the commonplace. His most recent book, Chicken, Shadow, Moon & More, testifies not only to his poetic gifts but to his artistic talents as well -- the poems are accompanied by facing illustrations, in two-color throughout. When Mark Strand was asked to describe Chicken, Shadow, Moon & More, he replied: "This book is composed of lists. Each list is built upon the repeated use of a single word. Each can be read in part or in its entirety. Each has a different tone, a different feel. Some of the lists seem close to being poetry, others closer to being prose. Sometimes sense matters, sometimes it doesn't. These lists are as easy to read upon falling asleep as they are upon waking". When Strand was asked to be more specific, he refused. Hour, a poem from this collection, was featured in the millennial edition of The New Yorker.
