Barbara Guest. Collected Poems. 2008. 512 pp.

I ordered this last summer and it has finally come out. I'm about halfway through it. Wow. We have this and the Spicer collected coming out all at once. Wesleyan is becoming the publisher of poetry.

This is a great collected, because it includes prose works too, like her series of cinema vignettes. Now I feel my collection of rare Guest books is less valuable. Still, some works are diminished here without their visual analogues (stripped tales, musicality.)
