Show and Tell
New and Selected Poems
Jim Daniels

The University of Wisconsin Press Poetry Series

Includes the "best of" the celebrated poet Jim Daniels

"Jim Daniels's work is strong, direct, with a contemporary validity."—Gwendolyn Brooks

"Show and Tell is a splendidly varied, rich and complex collection of poems, serious and wise, wry and often profound. Daniels's work has become both more experientially dramatic, and more poetically sure of itself. The voice in the poems retains its directness, its deceptive artlessness, but the conscience of the work and the generosity which informed it from the beginning have grown still more substantial."—C. K. Williams

"Jim Daniels is a poet of unique commitment and ability. He makes poetry an act of deep caring and recognition."—Robert Creeley
