Kindest Regards: New and Selected Poems
Ted Kooser

Four decades of poetry―and a generous selection of new work―make up this extraordinary collection by Pulitzer Prize winner Ted Kooser. Firmly rooted in the landscapes of the Midwest, Kooser’s poetry succeeds in finding the emotional resonances within the ordinary. Kooser’s language of quiet intensity trains itself on the intricacies of human relationships, as well as the animals and objects that make up our days. As Poetry magazine said of his work, “Kooser documents the dignities, habits, and small griefs of daily life, our hunger for connection, our struggle to find balance.”

For Kindest Regards: New and Selected Poems, Ted Kooser

“As Kooser records everyday pleasures and griefs, he remembers those he will never see again and underscores the deep need we all have for connection, moments of respite and the abiding sense that our ordinary moments matter” —Elizabeth Lund, The Washington Post

“Reading Ted Kooser’s poetry is like wearing a favorite pair of gloves. They are so warm and comforting that you cannot weather the world without them. They hold memories of everything touched, held, and hugged; they hold memories of home.” —Andrew Jarvis, The New York Journal of Books

“Nothing escapes him; everything is illuminated.” ―Library Journal

“This generous selection of new and selected poems makes it clear for the first time that Kooser’s great gift isn’t for turning language to a camera eye, but rather the way he inscribes the tiniest bit of warmth into each one of his poems.” —Lit Hub

“Kooser’s greatest assets have long been his generous eye and his way with understatement, two qualities abundantly present in this book of new and selected poems” —Jacob Bernstein, The New York Times


“Will one day rank alongside of Edgar Lee Masters, Robert Frost, and William Carlos Williams.” ―Minneapolis Tribune

“Kooser’s poems, the best of which have been gathered in his new retrospective, Kindest Regards, answer that cultural condescension by being mildly subversive, unveiling literary vignettes where, at first glance, it does seem that not much of anything is going on. Yet not far beneath the surface of the narrative, something profound inevitably glows” —The Christian Science Monitor

“Kooser’s ability to discover the smallest detail and render it remarkable is a rare gift.” The Bloomsbury Review

“Uninterested in cynicism, Kooser has been sentimental without becoming saccharine. He is one of our best poets, and not simply because his style widens the reach of the art form” —National Review

"Kindest Regards is a quiet masterpiece..." —Poet Lore
