Suntup Press - The World Doesn't End by Charles Simic
I’m looking forward to this one and thought I’d post about it here as I haven’t seen it mentioned. Suntup Press has announced a fine press limited edition of The World Doesn’t End
by Charles Simic, signed by the author.
By turns funny and poignant, whimsical and down-to-earth, The World Doesn’t End
by Charles Simic is a Pulitzer Prize-winning collection by a poet at the height of his powers. Simic masterfully constructs bizarre, unpredictable, and captivating visions in lyrical sentences that pile one incongruous turn upon another, building images that are full of surprise. Much like the river in one poem which flows backward, the power of Simic’s inner world derives from turning logic on its head and taking a look from another direction.
The signed limited edition of The World Doesn’t End
by Charles Simic is presented in two states: Lettered and Numbered. The editions measure 6” x 9” and feature four full-color images by Wendy Mark. Both editions are signed by Charles Simic and Wendy Mark.
