This book of Selected Poems is a fine addition which will help us understand where Hall was coming from. His poems after his wife's death are especially moving.
Donald Hall was an American master, one of the nation’s most beloved and accomplished poets. From the enduring My Son My Executioner to Names of Horses to Without, Donald Hall’s best poems deliver a banquet in the mouth (Charles Simic) and an aching elegance (Baltimore Sun). Here, in his eighties, having taken stock of the body of his work-rigorous, gorgeous verse that is the result of seventy years of ambition and pleasure -he strips it down. For the first-time reader or an old friend, these are, above all others, the poems to read, reread, and remember.
