Finalist, 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry Throughout his award-winning career, Bruce Weigl has proven himself to be a poet of extraordinary emotional acuity and consummate craftsmanship. In "The Abundance of Nothing," these qualities are on full display, animating and informing poems that combine rich, metaphoric imagery with direct, powerful language. Deftly weaving history and everyday experience, Weigl transports readers from the front lines of the Vietnam War and all the tangled cultural and emotional scenes of that time to the slow winds of the American Midwest that softly ease the voice of the veteran returning home. Though the poems struggle with themes of mortality and illness, violence and forgiveness, the poet s voice never wavers in its meditative calm, poise, and compassion. Elegiac yet agile, ethereal yet embodied, "The Abundance of Nothing" is a work of searching openness, generous insight, and remarkable grace."
