"Samuel Hazo’s poems combine reality with imagination and grace. The combination produces both comprehension and wisdom."—Ralph Nader
In this work, Hazo casts his eye back upon a career devoted to poetry. With works that are arranged loosely under the themes of love, family, and aging, this volume affirms Hazo’s status as one of the most compelling and enduring poets of his generation. Poems appearing in this collection include works which have appeared in the Hudson Review, Prairie Schooner, the New York Times, and the Saturday Review.
Samuel Hazo is the director of the International Poetry Forum in Pittsburgh, where he is also McAnulty Distinguished Professor of English Emeritus at Duquesne University. His books include The Song of the Horse, Just Once, Stills, and This Part of the World. Among his translations are Adonis’s The Pages of Day and Night and Nadia Tueni’s Lebanon: Poems of Love and War.
