Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hass links the poetic elements of the work song, the spiritual, of rhythm & blues and rap, and of poems written in Yiddish, in Chinese, and in Spanish. He hears the silence of the haiku in what becomes the spare and modernist. Through his gift for such brilliant connections, Hass presents nothing less than a working anthology of the New American canon.

Synopsis:

Former Poet Laureate Robert Hass 1979's Praise, the writers second volume of poetry.
