"Mr. Carver is heir to that most appealing American poetic voice, the lyricism of Theodore Roethke and James Wright... this book is a treasure, one to return to. No one's brevity is as rich, as complete, as Raymond Carver's." --New York Times Book Review "Carver's gifts as a storyteller shine through his poetry... Sometimes a Carver poem also works as a short story, with all its elements--character, diction, place, event--compressed intact into the brevity of verse. And sometimes Carver delivers the goods in pure lyrical form, in words as full of yearning and sensibility as those of a very young man, but poems possessing the hard-won qualities of focus, stillness and irony only rewarded by experience." --Los Angeles Times
