9780002710435: A New Path to the Waterfall

Poetry was as important to Raymond Carver as his short stories and this collection sounds a key-note of enjoyment in the present rather than regret for the past. In the introduction, his widow gives a moving account of his last days, his love of Chekhov and the poems of Czeslaw Milosz.

From Library Journal:

Though Carver is generally acknowledged to be a master of the short story, his first published work was poetry, and this collection, his last work, was completed shortly before his untimely death. His poetry is as recognizably his own as his stories and like them evokes depths of meaning beneath a surface simplicity. In her moving introduction, Carver's widow, writer Tess Gallagher, notes how often a particular poem calls to mind a corresponding story, and the reverse is also true. Indeed, to know Carver by his prose is to know him only partially. Master at illuminating those often mundane moments that starkly dramatize entire lives, Carver was also master at creating mood, and many of these poems have a striking lyrical intensity, especially when Carver unflinchingly faces death while celebrating life. A coda to a remarkable literary career.
