Description: James Tate "never ceases to astonish, dismay, delight, confuse, tickle, and generally improve the quality of our lives", wrote John Ashbery. In his newest collection, Memoir of the Hawk, Tate delivers a strict poetic logic teeming with comic narratives as well as darker ones, with characters as fresh as a slap in the face or a sudden kiss. In "Endless Time" a donkey in a paddock hides an extraordinary secret life. And in the title poem a man is terrified as he watches a hawk sweep down and steal a baby from a stroller, only to have the mother tell him, "I know that bird, it's a good bird".
