Book
The poems of Richard Howard are noted for their unique dramatic force and for preserving, in their graceful, exquisitely wrought lines, human utterance at its most urbane. Inner Voices, the first volume to draw together material from Howard's twelve books of poems, leaves no doubt as to why he has been called "a powerful presence in American poetry for 40 years" (The New York Times Book Review).

Praise for Inner Voices

"A long-awaited and meticulously chosen selection of the work of one of our few poetic masters." --John Hollander

"This volume . . . establishes [Howard] as Robert Browning's authentic heir at rendering the inner voices of the cultural past and present." --Harold Bloom

"Inner Voices is a wonder." --Anthony Hecht

"Howard's entire project is one of recovery, the exquisitely American need to create what Van Wyck Brooks called . . . a usable past . . . The very expanse of his sentences, their twist and torque, is an American dream of plentitude. --James Longenbach, Boston Review
