Editors Note A collection of writings by America's new poet laureate brings together his essays on Eagle Pond Farm, including his observations on rural life in New Hampshire and the changes in nature throughout the year, which previously appeared in Seasons at Eagle Pond and Here at Eagle Pond, the poem "Daylilies on the Hill," and several previously uncollected pieces. Original.
Editors Note 1 This original paperback brings together for the first time all of Donald Hall's writing on Eagle Pond Farm, his ancestral home in New Hampshire, where he visited his grandparents as a young boy and then lived with his wife, the poet Jane Kenyon, until her death. It includes the entire, previously published Seasons at Eagle Pond and Here at Eagle Pond; the poem "Daylilies on the Hill" from The Painted Bed; and several uncollected pieces. In these tender essays, Hall tells of the joys and quiddities of life on the farm, the pleasures and discomforts of a world in which the year has four seasons -- maple sugar, blackfly, Red Sox, and winter. Lyrical, comic, and elegaic, they sing of a landscape and culture that are disappearing under the assault of change.
