About this Item

Manila envelope glued to FFE, "Withdrawn" stamp inside front board, and marks to both pastedowns where DJ was "unglued." The DJ itself, which is NOT price clipped, shows no signs of damage save a small spine label, which could probably be removed. We thus conclude DJ was placed in an earlier protector before being glued down. (It is now free.) No. 68 in the Yale Series of Younger Poets, though rear DJ flap lists only to Michael Casey's "Obscenities," which is Volume 67. Book square and tight, would grade "very good" save for the library trappings. 73 pp. Reduced from $152. Bookseller Inventory # 001841

About this title

Synopsis:

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, presents 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. 
Stanley Kunitz, the judge of the competition, calls this year’s selection a big, strong-hearted, earthy book, in the America epic tradition of Whitman and Neruda. Hass is a wonderfully informed young man, a waking history, with abounding affection for the natural universe, including some humans, and with an imagination that spans the whole continent, from Buffalo to the Pacific.”
