Few American readers seem to be aware that Hermann Hesse, author of the epic novels Steppenwolf and Siddhartha, among many others, also wrote poetry, the best of which the poet James Wright has translated and included in this book. This is a special volume'filled with short, direct poems about love, death, loneliness, the seasons'that is imbued with some of the imagery and feeling of Hesse's novels but that has a clarity and resonance all its own, a sense of longing for love and for home that is both deceptively simple and deeply moving

In this final collection, which was left virtually complete at the time of his death, James Wright returns with haunting insistence to the themes that have become hallmarks of one of the enduring poetic voices of our time: the evocation of the author's Ohio childhood and youth; the intense, minute observation of the daily life of the classic culture of Italy, that any modern American poet has achieved.--Jacket blurb

From the publisher. Leslie Marmon Silko and James Wright met only twice. Their first encounter was brief, at a writers' conference in Michigan. Their correspondence began three years later, after Wright wrote to Silko praising her book Ceremony.
