Description: Robert Pinsky's third volume of poems, History of My Heart (first published in 1984), is an ideal introduction to the work of this vital and original American poet. Several of the poems in the book are among Pinsky's most powerful.

In the title poem, a skein of childhood recollections unwinds to reveal the way the heart grows into desire, "yearning further into giving itself into the air". "The Figured Wheel", the poem that opens the book, offers a striking image for the workings of Pinsky's poetry and for those of art in general. Elizabeth Frank remarked in The Nation that the "bizarre juggernaut of the title rolls unstoppably over the world, gathering all times, places, persons, mythologies, religions and literatures into its gorgeous hangings and inscriptions, which add up to nothing less than the human race's whole inheritance of metaphor".
