Donald Hall, Essays After Eighty

This truly distinguished poet writes this thin volume of essays about life in his eighties. Life isn’t easy, we find, and yet his mind, as always, is alert and attentive. There is much in Hall’s life that is not to admire, as he readily admits. And looking back his has not always been a happy journey. But we admire him for his honesty, marvel at his tenacity, and revel in language that is true and authentic.
