Item description for Work Life: New Poems by Paul Kane...
"Always an elegist, in the Vergilian mode, Kane touches greatness here in the beautiful poignance of 'Third Parent,' a farewell to his late mother-in-law. Only a handful of American poems in the last few decades perform the work of mourning so eloquently. Kane is a meditative poet resigned to a kind of faithless faith that longs for a transcendence not available to it."-Harold Bloom
Paul Kane writes poems of heartbreaking beauty. Cerebral and emotional in equal measure, Work Life contains his most personal lyrics.
A recipient of Fulbright, Guggenheim, and National Endowment for the Humanities fellowships, Paul Kane teaches at Vassar College.
