What We Will Give Each Other
- PoemsSidney Hall Jr.
The poems of What We Will Give Each Other use clear, logical language, and a classical artistry to explore profound ideas and emotions. In this they validate a remark made by Valéry: "There is nothing so mysterious as clarity."
David Baker says, "Guided sometimes by an Oriental compression and serenity, sometimes by a Classical irony and learnedness, and nearly always by the practicality and patience of New England ruralism, the poems of What We Will Give Each Other accrue into a book of surprising depth, variety, and passion."
This limited edition original paperback, beautifully designed and printed on fine papers is an example of the kind of book a small publisher can do best. It is a pleasure to hold, and also makes a perfect gift.
