Relations : selected poems, 1950-1985 by Philip Booth( Book )

6 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a collection of more than 150 poems selected from a writing life of 35 years. Booth is one of the few poets writing out of a New England background who has evolved his own terse Yankee idiom without sounding or imitating Robert Frost. He writes about the human condition in our century, our relations to our fellow beings, and about Maine landscapes and seascapes. Always sensitive to weather and the particularity of physical objects, he shows how this real world becomes his dream world. In the earlier poems Booth used rhyme extensively, but in his later work it is less frequent. The volume includes an elegy for Booth's long-time summer neighbor, Robert Lowell, and 31 previously uncollectd poems. ISBN 0-14-058560-5 (pbk.): $12.95
