Inhaltsangabe: The Man with Night Sweats is a haunting depiction of a world ravaged by illness that is part elegy for those who have been lost and part evocation of the changes that await those who survive. It is also one of the few works of literature that have fully met both the aesthetic and the moral challenges that the AIDS epidemic poses. The nobility and sobriety of Thom Gunn?s forms enhance and underscore the gravity and pathos of his subjects. The results have the cathartic and healing power of great art.
This volume?a contemporary classic by "one of the most singular and compelling poets in English [of] the past half-century" ( Times Literary Supplement)?contains poems written in response to the AIDS crisis. Originally published in 1992, it was Thom Gunn's first book of verse in ten years.
