I'm glad this poet came my way (through a third hand recommendation). I'm not always thrilled with mainstream academic poets, but there is a heart felt authenticity in much of what Hirsch writes, and a few gems scattered throughout this collection, e.g., "... Because it is dusk, Yes,/ dusk with its desperate colors of erasure."
