“Return to the City of White Donkeys: Poems,” a new collection of poems by English professor James Tate, was published last month by Ecco Press.

The volume is the 13th book of poems penned by Tate, who won the Pulitzer Prize and the William Carlos Williams Award for his 1991 work, “Selected Poems,” and the National Book Award for “Worshipful Company of Fletchers,” published in 1994.

A member of the faculty since 1971, Tate’s other honors include the Wallace Stevens award from the Academy of American Poets and fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. Earlier this year, he was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters.

“Return to the City of White Donkeys” is available in hardcover for $24.95.
