About The Book
Praise for John Haines
« A writer of rare vision and poetic eloquence. »
— Robert Michael Pyle, New York Times Book Review
« Haines has always written with a beautiful ear. His early work distinguished itself by combining lucid images from the natural world with a dreamy inwardness. An imagination of solitude inhabited a solitary landscape; if the sensibility relished an ascetic purity, the body presented itself in the mouth’s pleasure of vowel and in the eye’s exactness. The later work … retains these qualities — sense and imagination — while it adds more of the world and more of Haines’ rigorous intelligence. He writes with a hard instrument on a hard surface, making no disposable verses. »
— Donald Hall, The Nation
« His poems require concentration, rereading, and knowledge beyond what they impart, but the extra effort is richly, religiously rewarded. »
— Ray Olson, Booklist
« If one views Haines’ poetic development as a journey from the specific geography of the Alaskan wilderness to the uncharted places of the spirit, then that journey is now complete. »
— Dana Gioia
