This superb Pulitzer Prize#150;winning collection gives voice to failure with a wry, deft touch from one of this country's most engaging and uncompromising poets. In Failure, Philip Schultz evokes the pleasures of family,marriage, beaches, and dogs; New York City in the 1970s; revolutions both interior and exterior; and the terrors of 9/11 with a compassion that demonstrates he is a master of the bittersweet and fierce, the wondrous and direct, and the brilliantly provocative. Filled with poems of "heartbreaking tenderness that [go] beyond mere pity" (Gerald Stern), Failure is a collection to savor from this major American poet.

Mr. Scultz hits the nail on the head about failure. He also offers a portrait of mental illness, despair and acceptance of the failures and shortcomings inherent in being human.

I found his poetry beautiful and easy to read. Dog lovers will appreciate his reverence and appreciation of his and others canine companions :)
