This is an extraordinary memoir from one of our most celebrated poets. ""The Bread of Time"" is an amalgam of celebration and quest. In this memoir, Philip Levine celebrates the poets who were his teachers - particularly John Berryman and Yvor Winters, writers whose lives and work, he believes, have been misunderstood and misinterpreted. In the process of writing this account of his childhood and young manhood in Detroit and of his middle and later years in California and Spain, Levine came to realize that he was also engaged in a quest, striving to discover ""how I am."" The resulting work provides a double-edged revelation of the way writers grow. Witty and elegantly rendered in a prose that is as characteristically Levine's as his verse, this is superb - and essential - reading for anyone interested in contemporary poetry and poets.
