From 1956 till his death in 1999, William Bronk published thirty books of poetry and essays. Bronk returned again and again to a fundamental assertion that what is real--the world, truth, and ourselves--remains beyond the grasp of language and knowledge. Consequently, the world that we inhabit is a fiction of our own construction. Winner of the American Book Award for his collected poems, he is considered one of the foremost poets of his time. THE BODY OF THIS LIFE is an outstanding collection of essays and memoirs about his work by poets and scholars including Edward Foster, Burt Kimmelman, Robert Bertholf, and David Clippenger.
