Description
 
The lifes work of "one of the true master poets of his generation,"* whose poetry helped shape the consciousness of an age

For Galway Kinnell, it was "the poets job to figure out whats happening within oneself, to figure out the connection between the self and the world, and to get it down in words that have a lasting shape, that have a chance of lasting." This comprehensive volume includes "The Avenue Bearing the Initial of Christ into the New World," Kinnells stunning poem of immigrant life on the Lower East Side of New York, the incantatory book-length poem The Book of Nightmares, the searing evocation of Hiroshima in "The Fundamental Project of Technology," the iconic themes of his middle years--eros, family, the natural world ("After Making Love We Hear Footsteps," "The Bear," "Saint Francis and the Sow," "Blackberry Eating")--and the unflinchingly introspective work of his later years. Spanning six decades, this is the essential collection for old and new devotees of "a poet of the rarest ability . . . who can flesh out music, raise the spirits, and break the heart."**
