Sun under wood : new poems by Robert Hass( Book )

22 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sun Under Wood extends and deepens Hass's ongoing explorations of nature and human history, solitude and the bonds of children, parents, and lovers. Here his passion for apprehending experience with language - for creating experience with language - finds supple form in poems that embrace all that is alive and full of joy. Yet Hass's most seductive and indelible lyrics reside in an exquisitely fragile moment: there is a dark undercurrent rising in this text, an increasingly acute sense of mortality in a world "so full of pain it must sometimes make a kind of singing."

Facing the river : new poems by Czesław Miłosz( Book )

12 editions published between 1995 and 2000 in English and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A poet of immense moral authority, in these later poems, the poems of old age, of a long look back at the catastrophic upheavals of the twentieth century, Milosz writes with amazing clarity and a precise vision. Despite the preponderance of his themes, he writes with the lightness of touch found only in the great masters. Using his own translations and those of Robert Hass, with whom he has worked closely, this volume achieves the one task that seems necessary and at the same time impossible - to invent a language comprehensible "to both the living and the dead."

A testament to how science and the arts can join forces to educate and inspire, it ends in a passionate plea for conservation of all the planet's species
