Titel: Lifelines: Selected Poems 1950-1999
Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: With an economy of line and focus on nature that has deep roots in the New England traditions of Thoreau and Robert Frost, Philip Booth writes poetry that evokes crystalline images of sea, woods, and fields and explores the timeless themes of love, uncertainty, and responsibility. With many of Booth's early works now out of print, Lifelines presents a unique opportunity to become reacquainted with one of the major voices in contemporary American poetry.

Inhaltsangabe: In the long shadow of Robert Frost--at whose feet he literally sat as a student--Philip Booth's voice speaks from a deep-rooted sense of place and of how one lives and finds oneself among others, and otherness. As Anthony Hecht wrote, "Booth has carefully mastered and cultivated a poetry of fierce and terrible calm. It represents a devotion of years, a self-mastering valor, and honesty that only the finest poet dares. He writes with all of New England's eloquent spareness and self-effacing courage." Lifelines knits together resonances from fifty years of writing--not least, his love of Thoreau--and includes a significant number of new, previously unpublished poems. From lyrics of sea, woods, and fields to lines on love, uncertainty, and responsibility, this is a monumental opus from "a master of descriptive metaphor, one of the best" ( St. Louis Post-Dispatch).
"Anyone who cares about poetry knows his work . . . his allegiance to the real, his swerving toward the philosophical, his refusal to back away from the edge . . . [his] subtle, refined portraits." -- The New York Times Book Review
"Booth's work assumes a remarkable weight." -- American Poetry Review
