In this collection of memories about fathers, 118 of our finest American poets -- both daughters & sons, some famous, others less well known -- pay eloquent homage to their fathers & the broader concept of fatherhood. Whether writing of fathers who were heroes or antiheroes, defenders or pacifists, those who went away suddenly or those who reappeared after a long period of time, the poets here cast the net wide to harvest the infinite variety of the father-&-child relationship. This moving anthology presents poems full of humor, heartbreak, tragedy, & forgiveness. Poets include Ray Carver, Gwendolyn Brooks, Rita Dove, Louise Gluck, Don Justice, Maxine Kumin, & Robert Bly.
