The Selected Poems of Donald Hall
by Donald Hall




Overview -
"The hard-won achievement of a lifetime." -- Wall Street Journal

"When I was twelve I wrote my first poem, and by fourteen I decided that's what I'd do my whole life. I don't regret it." -- from the afterword by Donald Hall

Donald Hall was an American master, one of the nation's most beloved and accomplished poets. 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.

The Selected Poems of Donald Hall reflects the poet's handpicked, concise selection, showcasing work rich with humor and Eros and "a kind of simplicity that succeeds in engaging the reader in the first few lines" (Billy Collins).

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). For the first-time reader or an old friend, these are, above all others, the poems to read, reread, and remember.
