A new collection of verse by the rock-and-roll music performer offers insight into the metaphorical, emotional, and sensual elements of her life that shaped her music and literary career.

Blackwell North Amer

Auguries of Innocence is the first book of poetry from Patti Smith in more than a decade. It marks a major accomplishment from a poet and performer who has inscribed her vision of our world in powerful anthems, ballads, and lyrics. In this intimate and searing collection of poems, Smith joins in that great tradition of troubadours, journeymen, wordsmiths, and artists who respond to the world around them in fresh and original language. Her influences are eclectic and striking: Blake, Rimbaud, Picasso, Arbus, and Johnny Appleseed. Smith is an American original; her poems are oracles for our times.

I am such an admirer of all of Patti Smith's work, but I am especially drawb to her poetry. My favorite is the Woolgathers but this is very, very, very good! I've ordered it so I can reread anytime I want or need to hear her voice.
