ALL YOU WHO SLEEP TONIGHT

By (author)VIKRAM SETH

 805

Vikram Seth’s novel in verse, The Golden Gate, was hailed by Gore Vidal as “the Great California Novel” and by the New Republic as “a tour de force of the transcendence of the mere tour de force.” Now he brings his romance with the English language, his effortless access to the deepest reservoirs of feeling, and his ability to light up the plain surfaces of everyday life to this stunning collection of poems.

In All You Who Sleep Tonight Seth delves into the varieties of love — love lost, remembered, and deferred. He evokes the unspeakable ironies of Auschwitz and the light-blasted streets of Hiroshima. He conducts the reader through Lion Grove in Suzhou, China, and across the Golden Gate Bridge on its fiftieth anniversary. Throughout, he displays the lyricism and attentiveness that distinguish the best poets of every era.
