Product description

Review

A lovely book, full of joy and wisdom.-The Baltimore Sun
Hirsch's contribution is significant, [grounded] in the obvious pleasure he has experienced through words. . . . Who could resist the wiles of this poetry-broker-a writer rapidly becoming the baby boomers' preeminent man of letters?-Detroit Free Press
Laudable . . . The answer Hirsch gives to the question of how to read a poem is: Ecstatically.-The Boston Book Review
