About Book

A Poetry Book Society recommendation

Arranged in three parts - the first concerning other people's lives, the second autobiographical, the third to do with the poet's travels in Mexico - Corona, Corona displays to the full Michael Hofmann's gift for compressed and vividly pointed reportage. It offers some of the boldest, frankest and most searching poetry of our time.
