Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

During his last five years, MacLeish discussed his professional life as poet, playwright, lawyer, editor of Fortune, Librarian of Congress and Harvard professor. "These free-ranging memoirs reveal many hitherto undisclosed aspects of an eloquent, high-minded American," noted PW. Photos.

From Library Journal

During the last five years of his life MacLeish participated in this series of interviews tracing his career as poet, Librarian of Congress, statesman, and man of letters. He speaks candidly of his student years, his "expatriate period" in Paris, and his subsequent writing and teaching. The editors/interviewers have wisely asked only brief, perceptive questions, leaving the spotlight on the poet. His language is colloquial, and the range of his writing, experience, and acquaintances should prove fascinating to readers of 20th-century poetry, literature, and social history. Stephen H.

"Ten Windows" by Jane Hirshfield
Hirshfield explores how poetry’s world-making takes place: word by charged word. By expanding what is imaginable and sayable, Hirshfield proposes, poems expand what is possible. See more
