Product description


With unerring artistry, Len Krisak's poems in Say What You Will extend an invitation with enormous erudition, sure, but equally with wit and charm, solemnity and grace, in this exquisite book.

-Greg Williamson, author of A Most Marvelous Piece of Luck

In Len Krisak's Say What You Will, a voice comes to us from out of the Midwest, by way of ancient Italy. A formidable translator of Vergil and Horace, Krisak is attuned to echoes lingering in those gorgeous classical ruins that will outlast our century's bravest new structures. He's also attuned to the here-and-now in all its incongruities, a place where (in Krisak's hands) Chinese takeout turns out to rhyme with stakeout.

These are footloose poems, happily ambling here and there, so the reader is hardly surprised if on one page you're in Russia and in another you're contemplating the Boston subway, or if one of Vermeer's silent beauties winds up beside the silent film star Louise Brooks.

Say What You Will is a smart and kindly book.

-Brad Leithauser, 2020 Able Muse Book Award judge, author of Rhyme's Rooms

Readers should welcome Say What You Will, the newest book of accessible but challenging poems by Len Krisak. His subjects range from high culture to pop culture, and his well-crafted translations range from the ancient Greeks to Montale. This is one of the best collections of poetry in this pandemic year.

-A. M. Juster, author of Wonder and Wrath
