Tell Me Again How The White Heron Rises .....
Poetry by Hayden Carruth
Tell Me Again How the White Heron Rises and Flies Across the Nacreous River at Twilight Toward the Distant Islands is Hayden Carruth’s fourth book of poetry with New Directions. This is a full and rich collection which has been separated into two parts. Part one offers a varied wealth of poems, remarkable as always for their meditative powers and for their “principled alertness…” (NYTBR). The seccond part is one long poem, “Mother,” a work of fierce emotion addressing the long life and slow torturous death of Carruth’s own mother.
