About this title


Poems deal with dreams, the ocean, the seasons, stone-cutters, builders, treasure, myths, death, children, animals, and history

From Library Journal:

Here is a wide and perhaps timely selection focusing on Jeffers's shorter poems but including a few of the longer poems. As critics have tended to focus on Jeffers's narrative poems, this collection offers a fresh opportunity to reevaluate the shorter poems while reminding us that Jeffers's work must be read in opposition to such modernists as Pound and Eliot. But the most valuable feature of this work is Robert Hass's extensive and probing introduction, which summarizes Jeffers's personal life and explores various pivotal points in his writing career: "there was the leapto the wholeness of things . . . into the permanence and superb indifference of nature."
