About this item

"Merwin's masterfully refined, meditative poems stem from his dwelling mindfully in one beloved place and handling words as though they are seeds, flowers, stones, and water ... Merwin has attained a transcendent and transformative elevation of beaming perception, exquisite balance, and clarifying beauty." - Booklist, starred review of The Moon before Morning"In his personal anonymity, his strict individuated manner, his defense of the earth, and his heartache at time's passing, Merwin has become instantly recognizable on the page." - Helen Vendler, The New York Review of Books"W.S.
