The first collection of poems by Robert Hass, one of contemporary American poetry’s most celebrated and widely read voices, and the 68th volume of the Yale Series of Younger Poets
The winning volume in the 1972 Yale Series of Younger Poets competition is a collection of richly anecdotal, lyric poems. Robert Hass writes about the California coast, about birds, fish, books, friends, present sensations, and the impingements of the past upon the present. Running through the book is a core of love poems, mainly domestic, which muse on the natural order that the affections try to establish even within the wilderness of history and political violence.
Robert Hass is a professor of English at the University of California at Berkeley and former poet laureate of the United States. An award-winning author, his other books of poetry include Time and Materials, SunUnder Wood, and Praise. His books of essays include Twentieth Century Pleasures: Prose on Poetry.
