Title

Summer Snow by Robert Hass

Dr. Brian Hendrickson, Writing Studies, Rhetoric, and Composition

Description

"Hass is a genius of subtlety, and this book is as much concerned with the artist's endless intellectual struggle with the limits and possibilities of representation as it is the limits and possibilities of living. The book pulls no punches, beginning with a series of meditations on death, which, as we are all experiencing right now, is not always so subtle at all. It is a book surreally suited for the moment, in which we are all so immersed that we desperately need the spaces that Hass' poems provide us to attune ourselves to the magnitude of this shared experience."
