Read full description of the books Laugh at the End of the World: Collected Comic Poems, 1969-1999:Bill Knott, said Marvin Bell, "can sing like an open-throated nightingale or twist the neck of syntax until it turns blue". Laugh at the End of the World is Knott at his best, a collection of three decades of comic poems showcasing his versatility and iconoclastic wit. Moving between free verse and rhyme, Knott's poems are propelled by startling syntax, irreverent observations and original language: "The Daily Rounds"
so that all who approach me
can see themselves
and respond appropriately
