Synopsis
Galway Kinnell (b. 1927) is an American poet who won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1982 and split the National Book Award for Poetry with Charles Wright. From 1989 to 1993 he was poet laureate for the state of Vermont. An admitted follower of Walt Whitman, Kinnell rejects the idea of seeking fulfillment by escaping into the imaginary world. This book, published in 1960, is his first book of poems and is, by any standard, an exceptional first book of poems. Combining a quiet assurance of voice with a sustained beauty of line and image, Galway Kinnell has a rare ability to engage and satisfy our attention. And when he modulates from simple lyrics of remembered persons and places, into the major elegiac statement of "Freedom, New Hampshire", or into the terrifying but exultant apocalyptic vision of "The Supper After the Last", we find ourselves in the presence of the seriousness, the intensity, the high humor of enduring poetry.
