Essential for all readers of progressive American poetry, this collection encompasses the exhilaration and joy, the madness and sorrow of the last forty years with a lyric intensity that, in the words of the poet Robert Creeley, offers a "wry and securing truth." A generous selection from the poet's career, Light and Shade is a major release from one of the country's most influential poets and critics.
