About this title


Presents a new, intensely personal anthology of poetry that explores the rich complexities of language and the tender and powerful moments of everyday life. Reprint.

From the Back Cover:

"This book clearly demonstrates that Haxton is a poet of impressive technical and aesthetic sophistication. His poems have a shimmeringly lunar, susurrant beauty and an impressive range of literary and historical allusions." Christine Stenstrom, Library Journal

"Haxton has drawn together several styles of verse and several schools of thought. The result is a book that employs lyrical beauty, harsh realism, boyish romanticism and brushstrokes of regret in the service of a host of subjects, from flowers to love to the study of the planets."

Stan Friedman, The New York Times Book Review

Traveling Company (1989)

"The poems in Brooks Haxton's Traveling Company are extraordinary. I value their beauty and their strength, one by one, and their accumulating power to move their reader's own responding imagination. It is a pleasure to recommend this fine book." Eudora Welty

Dominion (1986)

"These are extraordinary poems, strikingly original, rich, comic, and beautiful in the use of language." Walker Percy
