Aimless Love: New and Selected Poems by Billy Collins

Aimless Love is the first compilation to come from the two-term U.S. poet laureate in 12 years. Combining more than 50 new poems with poems from four previous books, this collection is a wonderful addition for any Billy Collins fan, and is sure to win him new fans as well. Touching on the themes of time passing, love, loss, and the importance (and paradoxes that come with) language itself, this collection does a marvelous job of being both accessible and imaginative. There is an almost guiding quality to the poems in this book—as if the reader is receiving advice to questions that arise as life progresses—and yet Collins’ playfulness dances with depth. (Don't miss our special offsite event with Billy Collins on November 8th - details here.)
