Here his passion for apprehending experience with language - for creating experience with language - finds supple form in poems that embrace all that is alive and full of joy. Yet Hass's most seductive and indelible lyrics reside in an exquisitely fragile moment: there is a dark undercurrent rising in this text, an increasingly acute sense of mortality in a world "so full of pain it must sometimes make a kind of singing."+-+2319655335118916ocn000666818book19710.37Hass, RobertField guide+-+7881255585324117812ocn009853393book19840.35Hass, RobertTwentieth century pleasures : prose on poetryCriticism, interpretation, etcA selection of essays written during the last five years on the importance and vitality of poetry+-+K48065533510124ocn026673886book19930.16Into the garden : a wedding anthology : poetry and prose on love and marriage+-+64197451559693ocn037213602book19980.20Hass, RobertPoet's choice : poems for everyday lifeCriticism, interpretation, etcA collection of poems selected by Robert Hass during his tenure as U.S. Poet Laureate to appear in a syndicated newspaper column designed to introduce a poem a week to readers across the country+-+211065533588311ocn004037052book19790.35Hass, RobertPraisePoetry+-+57976553358349ocn018072333book19890.33Hass, RobertHuman wishes+-+47676553357351ocn800030713book20130.20The best of the best American poetry100 poems selected by Robert Pinsky that represent each volume in The best American poetry series7222ocn317919840book20100.21Constantine, Peter (EDT)/ Hadas, Rachel (EDT)/ Keeley, Edmund (EDT)/ Van Dyck, Karen (EDT)The Greek poets : Homer to the presentAn extensive volume of Greek poetry includes more than one thousand entries spanning three millennia and many diverse traditions, in an anthology that includes works by such classic and modern writers as Sappho, Pindar, and Seferis+-+28351584856848ocn031657838book19950.31Miłosz, CzesławFacing the river : new poemsA poet of immense moral authority, in these later poems, the poems of old age, of a long look back at the catastrophic upheavals of the twentieth century, Milosz writes with amazing clarity and a precise vision.

The bucket was required for the horses to drink from. I traveled through a country of hilts and pine groves that gave way to stretches of forest, where tangles of smoke hovered over the roofs of houses, as if they were on fire, for they were chimneyless cabins; I crossed districts of fields and lakes. It was so interesting to be moving, to give the horses their reins, and wait till, in the next valley, a village slowly appeared, or a park with the white spot of a manor inside it. And always we were barked at by a dog, assiduous in its duty. That was the beginning of the century; this is its end. I have been thinking not only of the people who lived there once but also of the generations of dogs accompanying them in their everyday bustle, and one night -- I don't know where it came from -- in a predawn sleep, that funny and tender phrase composed itself: a road-side dog+-+547607928562612ocn806296065book20110.26Hass, RobertWhat light can do : essays on art, imagination, and the natural worldCriticism, interpretation, etc"[A] collection of essays on writers, place, poetry, and photography--with accompanying photos throughout"--Flap p. 1 of dust jacket+-+87487461555724ocn061130847book20060.24Miłosz, CzesławSelected poems, 1931-2004PoetrySelected Poems: 1931-2004 celebrates Czeslaw Milosz's lifetime of poetry. Widely regarded as one of the greatest poets of our time, Milosz is a master of expression and probing inquiry. Life opened for Czeslaw Milosz at a crossroads of civilizations in northeastern Europe. This was less a melting pot than a torrent of languages and ideas, where old folk traditions met Catholic, Protestant, Judaic, and Orthodox rites. What unfolded next around him was a century of catastrophe and madness: two world wars, revolutions, invasions, and the murder of tens of millions, all set to a cacophony of hymns, gunfire, national anthems, and dazzling lies. In the thick of this upheaval, wide awake and in awe of living, dodging shrapnel, imprisonment, and despair, Milosz tried to understand both history and the moment, with humble respect for the suffering of each individual. He read voraciously in many languages and wrote masterful poetry that, even in translation, is infused with a tireless spirit and a penetrating insight into fundamental human dilemmas and the staggering yet simple truth that to exist on the earth is beyond any power to name. Unflinching, outspoken, timeless, and unsentimental, Milosz digs through the rubble of the past, forging a vision--and a warning--that encompasses both pain and joy. His intellectual life, writes Seamus Heaney, could be viewed as a long single combat with shape-shifting untruth. --HarperCollins Publishers / Ecco Press+-+221336515520201ocn032201913book19950.21Moyers, Bill DThe language of life : a festival of poetsCriticism, interpretation, etcPoetryInterviewsPresents the author's interviews with contemporary poets from diverse racial, ethnic, and religious backgrounds discussing their work, lives, and creativity.

Gardner approaches their poetry in light of philosopher Stanley Cavell's remarkably similar engagement with the issues of skepticism and linguistic finitude. The skeptic's refusal to settle for anything less than perfect knowledge of the world, Cavell maintains, amounts to a refusal to accept the fact of human finitude, Gardner argues that both Cavell and the poets he discusses reject skepticism's world-erasing conclusions but nonetheless honor the truth about the limits of knowledge the skepticism keeps alive."--Jacket+-+7126778535552ocn173257088visu20060.37American poet laureatesInterviewsThe U.S. Poet Laureate has a unique opportunity to shape America's literary terrain by fostering public appreciation of poetry and by continuing to produce his or her own work.

The thesis is a study of four poems in which domestic spaces are the foremost setting. Within this setting, the tasks of poetry in terms of the principles of witness, owed response, and transformation as well as the use of various combinations of form were studied. Hass was found to be original in his use of form, specifically as it pertained to the witness of issues pertinent in intimate situations and spaces. Robert Hass has been a proponent of writing poetry easily accessible to most readers in terms of personal relevance while retaining sophistication of subject matter and literary reference.
