Synopsis: If youth asks the mirror, "Am I the fairest?" then age, in Robert Creeley's skillful, ironic, and tender voice asks, "Do you remember me?" And the poems of LIFE & DEATH are the mirror's answers--a collage of recollection and salvage, a gathering-in before winter's night.

There is [in Creeley's work] precisely a soulful tenacity, a hybrid between devotion and obsession, that keeps him a major poet. -- Richard Silberg, Poetry Flash
