Summer Snow: New Poems

Robert Hass (Author)


A major collection of entirely new poems from the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award-winning author of Time and Materials and The Apple Trees at Olema

A new volume of poetry from Robert Hass is always an event. In Summer Snow, his first collection of poems since 2010, Hass further affirms his position as one of our most highly regarded living poets. Hass's trademark careful attention to the natural world, his subtle humor, and the delicate but wide-ranging eye he casts on the human experience are fully on display in his masterful collection. Touching on subjects including the poignancy of loss, the serene and resonant beauty of nature, and the mutability of desire, Hass exhibits his virtuosic abilities, expansive intellect, and tremendous readability in one of his most ambitious and formally brilliant collections to date.

"Hass personalizes everything, warms everything up. He's an open book; but he's also someone whom readers should, in every sense of the phrase, keep their eye on."--New Yorker
"It all sounds like mastery, like singular virtuosity attained on a very popular instrument -- common American speech."--New York Times Book Review
