"Melody's Fool" brings together the sonnets and songs of Jake Spatz, along with a generous handful of free-verse addresses and satirical pieces. Included here are the fan favorites "To a Nihilist," "Wanting Music" and "Piglet," along with 30 other remarkable pieces of verse. The volume concludes with the hilariously rambling fragment "Verses for 'Pirithous'," originally written for a burlesque show.
Crafted with the same attention to detail and expert formatting that readers have come to expect from Charles & Wonder, "Melody's Fool" presents the wide formal variety of Spatz's poetry with a great look even on small devices. Every line has been properly indented to portray the poet's intention clearly and accurately, and the text has been thoroughly edited for readability.
