Collected Longer Poemsby Hayden Carruth
Synopses & Reviews
Winner of the Paterson Poetry Prize and companion to Collected Shorter Poems. Here is Carruth's longer narrative work and poems in sequence, including the epic on the nature of romance, The Sleeping Beauty.
Book News Annotation:
Inappropriately cast as a latter day Robert Frost, Carruth actually shares much more of the metaphysical vastness and unyielding intellectual rigor of Conrad Aiken. This is as great as it gets in our time.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
