Memory Piano is another in the ""Poets on Poetry"" series from the brilliant and prolific Charles Simic. In all of his books, Simic examines not only other writers' works with an engaging and critical eye; he also breaks new boundaries in his exploration of the outer and inner reaches of the human condition. Included here are penetrating essays on April Bernard, Robinson Jeffers, Donald Justice, Pablo Neruda, Gerald Stern, Richard Wilson, and Charles Wright, among others, as well as Simic's musings on Eastern European poetry and politics, and a memoir piece, ""The Singing Simics.
