Distant Blue by Thomas Carper, recipient of the 2003 Richard Wilbur Award, is a remarkable collection of carefully crafted poems and beautifully rendered translations from authors such as Ronsard, Du Bellay and Akhmatova. The scope of the book is a powerful testimony to an author whose mind ranges from sublime metaphysical observations to unique perspectives on the minutiae of everyday life. Whether Carper is ruminating on checkout lines, flypaper, or the heights of Parnassus, his skill with line and form are always in evidence, moving the reader with strength and seeming ease through the rich landscape of his imagination.
