"Auguries of Innocence" is the first book of poetry from Patti Smith in more than a decade. It marks a major accomplishment from a poet and performer who has inscribed her vision of our world in powerful anthems, ballads, and lyrics. In this intimate and searing collection of poems, Smith joins in that great tradition of troubadours, journeymen, wordsmiths, and artists who respond to the world around them in fresh and original language. Her influences are eclectic and striking: Blake, Rimbaud, Picasso, Arbus, and Johnny Appleseed. Smith is an American original; her poems are oracles for our times.
"The incendiary rock star mellows."--The Oregonian (Portland) "30 years after Horses, Smith's light is still burning bright."--San Francisco Chronicle "[A] hidden jewel...Among her best."--Library Journal
