About this title


Poems deal with later life, a family member's struggle against cancer, lifetime friendships, and social concerns


Adrienne Rich has called Hayden Carruth "a part of our country's poetic treasure," and his other admirers include Galway Kinnell and Wendell Berry. A poet's poet, Carruth spins simple lines full of possible meanings, lines that stick in the reader's mind a long time. In "Particularity," for instance, Carruth writes of "this invisible / hereness where I am . . . the center / of mystery." Juxtaposing the mysterious with the tangible, Carruth is writing better than ever.
