Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award in poetry, this serious, ambitious, and graceful book-length poem is the masterwork of one of America's foremost contemporary poets.

Review:

"Though at times esoteric because of its form and the intricacy and spontaneity of Hall's thought processes, the poem maintains a remarkable clarity and elegance of language as vivid, concrete details are interspersed with a stream of consciousness." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

Hall celebrates his sixtieth birthday with the most powerful poem he has ever written, a book-length work that evokes the kind of public power associated with Hall's teacher Archibald MacLeish.
