With passion and pathos and great good humor—in poems that could only be written by a mature poet at the height of his powers—Carruth speaks with intimate and urgent clarity of love late in life. In heart-rending poems he addresses his daughter’s struggle against cancer, as well as the loves, friendships, and social concerns of a lifetime.
