Overview

Sun Under Wood extends and deepens Hass’s ongoing explorations of nature and human history, solitude and the bonds of children, parents, and lovers. 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.”

"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"
