Time and Materials: Poems 1997-2005: Robert Hass: Books

Robert Hass is one of those rare American poets who never fall back into formula, the familiar self-parodies that litter most poets' careers. His newest book, Time and Materials, is as rich and multi-layered as the others, and each poem has the feel of art newly minted. The intelligence of mind and heart and body, of keen observation and linguistic music, are everywhere present.
