    (New York Review Book Classics). In the most sustained literary response thus far to Joseph Cornell's boxes, montages, and films, the acclaimed contemporary American poet Charles Simic reflects on the art of the homegrown American surrealist. In a work that is in various degrees biography, criticism, and sheer poetry, Simic composes/assembles a collection of crystalline paragraphs - irreplaceable miniatures - telling the story of Cornell's life and illuminating the hermetic mysteries of his extraordinary boxes, objects in which private obsessions are alchemically transformed into enduring works of art. 'As lucid and shadowy as the imagination it celebrates.' Illus., color photos. 88p.

    Mattia Pascal endures a life of drudgery in a provincial town. Then, providentially, he discovers that he has been declared dead. Realizing he has a chance to start over, to do it right this time, he moves to a new city, adopts a new name, and a new course of life - only to find that this new existence is as insufferable as the old one. But when he returns to the world he left behind, it's too late: his job is gone, his wife has remarried. Mattia Pascal's fate is to live on as the ghost of the man he was.

    Whether he draws for inspiration on American blues, folktales, or Greek myths, Simic's words have a hang-time of their own. In these forty-four poems, the poet valorizes language, sending word value up the charts of sheer invention that spans the real world and that of dreams. Simic leaves the mysteries of the word intact but remarkably transformed, naming moments, feelings, expressions from the inside-out.
