Love About Love
C.K. Williams

In Love About Love, C.K. Williams has created a wholly new context for poems written over a lifetime. Culled from all of his previous collections, the poems have been reorganized by the author, sometimes radically, into a sequence that throws startling fresh light on them. With characteristic intensity and directness, Williams explores the many faces of his subject—passion, affection, sexuality, loneliness, jealousy, loss—in poems remarkable for their range and ingenuity. What emerges is a complex and surprising self-portrait-as-lover from earliest childhood longings to the hindsight of mature experience. Love About Love is an unsentimental and unsparing self-assessment by a poet writing at the height of his powers, a vital study of the evolution of a consciousness that is truth-telling, passionate, and profound.
