More About Delights & Shadows by Ted Kooser
 
 
 
Overview
Ted Kooser is a master of metaphor, a poet who deftly connects disparate elements of the world and communicates with absolute precision. Critics call him a "haiku-like imagist" and his poems have been compared to Chekov's short stories. In "Delights and Shadows," Kooser draws inspiration from the overlooked details of daily life. Quotidian objects like a pegboard, creamed corn and a forgotten salesman's trophy help reveal the remarkable in what before was a merely ordinary world.

"Kooser documents the dignities, habits and small griefs of daily life, our hunger for connection, our struggle to find balance."-"Poetry"

Ted Kooser is the author of eight collections of poems and a prose memoir. He lives on a small farm in rural Nebraska.
