"No practicing poet has more talent than Robert Hass."– "The Atlantic Monthly""Sun Under Wood is Hass at his best. It is a book to reread, always with the lucky sense of walking through a meadow with a friend, deep in the best kind of exchange."– "Los Angeles Times"The poems in Hass's fourth collection -artfully assembled from prose, epigram, conversation, and free verse–prove both meditative and emotional. Hass is able to aestheticize loss without succumbing to either nostalgia or self-consciousness.... His new poems are plangent and ecstatic." – "The New Yorker"
