about

Robert Hass is the author of two earlier collections of poems, Field Guide and Praise, and a book of essays, Twentieth Century Pleasures. He has also collaborated with Czeslaw Milosz on the translation of his poems, most recently Collected Poems. His many honors include a John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur fellowship and the 1984 National Book Critics Circle Award in criticism. He has taught for many years at St. Mary’s College of California and is currently a professor of English at the University of California, Berkeley.

"Human Wishes takes Hass's poetry to a level of tenderness that few of his contemporaries have reached.... It would not surprise me if he turned out to be one of our major poets, for he has all the requisites: intelligence, depth, musicality, sweep, intimacy, humor, observation, learning, and above all, compassion." (The Boston Globe)
