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.
- Charles Michaud, Turner Free Lib., Randolph, Mass.

Book Description ATLANTIC BOOKS, United Kingdom, 1994. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. Raymond Carver, author of Where I m Calling From, is widely considered one of the great short story writers of our time. A New Path to the Waterfall was Carver s last book, and shows a writer telling the truth as best as he knows how in the time left to him. The sixty-odd poems in this collection are linked by Carver with selections from other writers, most notably Chekhov, whose work was an inspiration and a guide, and by the cumulative force of the life and death questions he poses in them. As Rilke s Letters to a Young Poet guided countless readers discovering their true love and work, Carver s book will guide those in the process of celebrating a limited life and mourning the inescapable end of it. A New Path to the Waterfall is an essential book for those who admire Carver s work, and testament to the transcendent strength of the human spirit. In her introductory essay, Tess Gallagher, Carver s companion and fellow writer, lays out the circumstances of their last years together with matter-of-fact grace.
