Last PoemsLast Poems by Hayden Carruth

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


An amazing collection of a great poet. Following introductions by his friends, poets Brooks Haxton and Stephen Dobyns, the book gathers not just the prolific Carruth's last poems written before his death but also each poem that closed his previous collections. It's an interesting approach and it works well as Carruth grew over time while still touching on the same themes. As the book ends, he contemplates his own demise and the people he has loved over the years. Haunting and beautiful, this poetry collection is highly recommended.
