"Perhaps the greatest English language poem of this century" (The New York Times)-finally in paperback! Jack Kerouac called Robert Lax "one of the great original voices of our times...a Pilgrim in search of beautiful innocence, writing lovingly, finding it, simply, in his own way." Though many hold him to be one of the greatest American poets of the 20th century, Lax maintained a low profile, living and writing in seclusion on the Greek island of Patmos. In Circus Days and Nights, Lax's three great long poems on the circus-"Circus of the Sun," "Mogador's Book," and "Sunset City"-are collected together for the first time, placing this early masterwork in the position within American literature that it so richly deserves.
