Description

Richard Eberhart--one of America's most respected and acclaimed poets--has won praise from fellow poets as various as Robert Penn Warren, Dame Edith Sitwell, Philip Booth, and Daniel Hoffman. The literary world has celebrated his poetry--which assumes a variety of forms ranging from romantic description to allegory--for its profundity and humanity. Centering on his summers spent in Maine, Eberhart's new collection responds to the question, "Are you going to Maine?," asked in the poem entitled, "Going to Maine." His premise that "Going to Maine is a state of mind" reverberates throughout the collection. Whether describing an old pine tree facing Penobscot Bay, wild swans on Inchiquin Lake, or a loon's cry, in verse marked by intensity, honesty, and precise diction, Eberhart answers the initial question with a resounding, "Yes, we are going, we are going, Yes, we are going to Maine."show more
