Description


* Winner of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize in Poetry *

The long-awaited third poetry book by Vijay Seshadri, "one of the most respected poets working in America today" ("Time Out New York")

Vijay Seshadri's new poetry is assured and expert, his line as canny as ever. In an array of poetic forms from the rhyming lyric to the philosophical meditation to the prose essay, "3 Sections" confronts perplexing divisions of contemporary life--a wayward history, an indeterminate future, and a present condition of wanting to outthink time. This is an extraordinary book, witty and vivacious, by one of America's best poets.

About the Author


Vijay Seshadri was born in India and came to America at age five. He grew up in Columbus, Ohio. His work has appeared in the "Threepenny Review," the "New Yorker," "Shenandoah," "Antaeus," and "AGNI,"

Praise For…


Praise for 3 Sections:  "An extraordinarily naked modern consciousness, an intensely experienced dislocation, a beautiful intelligence: Seshadri's poetry is exhilarating." —Jonathan Franzen "[A] compelling collection of poems that examine human consciousness, from birth to dementia, in a voice that is by turns witty and grave, compassionate and remorseless." —Pulitzer Prize Judges' Citation "Confront[s] contemporary dilemmas with caustic humor." —The New Yorker "Deft yet direct, often funny and yet alert to existential quandaries, this third outing . . . could be the most versatile, as well as one of the most successful, volumes this year." —Publishers Weekly, starred review "[Seshadri] is so talented, so able, and writes with such panache." —Booklist "Anyone concerned about the state of American poetry should put aside his or her thesis notes and pick up a copy of 3 Sections. . . . Mr.Seshadri is talented and assured enough to lay his self-consciousness bare on the page with a generous, fluid, avuncular wit reminiscent of W.H. Auden." —The American Reader "Truly original. . . . [Seshadri] attempts the impossible and succeeds. . . . I read it twice; it was worth it." —Washington Independent Review of Books
