A welcome return to paperback: James Merrill’s most famous and celebrated work.
“An astonishing performance . . . As near to [a masterpiece] as anything that American poetry has produced in the last two or three decades.” —The New York Review of Books
“James Merrill has created a poem as central to our generation as The Waste Land was to the one before.” —The New Leader
“In turns comic, elegiac, and darkly prophetic, Sandover is as ambitious in scope as it is audacious in concept . . . combining an epic intent with dramatic and lyric meanings and means. The result may be the greatest long poem an American has yet produced.” —Newsweek
