Description
In this first full-length volume of poems in a decade by the former poet laureate of the United States, Donald Hall picks out iconic objects of deep memory in sharp detail—a cowbell, a white stone perfectly round, a three-legged milking stool—to anchor his rich meditations on time and mortality. Hall reveals a fierce, pitiless poignancy as his own life's end comes into view, yet The Back Chamber is far from being death-haunted; it is in fact lively, irreverent, erotic, hilarious, ironic, and sly, full of the life-affirming energy that has made him one of America's most popular and enduring poets.

"Donald Hall's The Back Chamber: Poems arrives like a sudden cloudburst and shower of cooling rain.... A former U.S. poet laureate, Hall has always had this elemental power—to vividly evoke his particular New England climate and geography so that it can't be mistaken for any other—but what is more unexpected in this new collection of poems, his 16th, is passion."—LATimes
