He is also one of the most sophisticated. Like William Carlos Williams, he honed his writing to a controlled and direct language. His intellectual complexity matches Wallace Stevens, his polymath erudition Ezra Pound. He is first among our nature poets. His love poems and erotic lyrics are unsurpassed. Rexroth'snbsp;Selected Poemsnbsp;brings together in a single volume a representative sampling of sixty years' work. Here are substantial passages from his longer poems:nbsp;The Homestead Called Damascus(1920-1925), begun while the poet was in his teens; the cubistnbsp;Prolegomenon to a Theodicynbsp;(1925-1927); the philosophical masterpiecenbsp;The Phoenix and the Tortoisenbsp;(1940-1944) andnbsp;The Dragon and the Unicornnbsp;(1944-1950); and the meditativenbsp;The Heart's Garden, The Garden's Heartnbsp;(1967). The shorter poems were originally gathered innbsp;In What Hournbsp;(1940),nbsp;The Art of Wordly Wisdomnbsp;(1949),The Signature of All Thingsnbsp;(1950),nbsp;In Defense of the Earthnbsp;(1956),nbsp;Natural Numbers(1964),nbsp;New Poemsnbsp;(1974), andnbsp;The Morning Starnbsp;(1979).
