Classics, Essays by Rachel Hadas

In this engrossing collection of essays, Rachel Hadas describes a life immersed in the mind, a life of books and of history: "A mind is like that, too. Books and attention, books as attention, conversation, books as conversation--endless attention and attentiveness are required." Hadas ranges widely in her subjects, exploring autobiography, poetry ancient and contemporary, the craft of writing, and the discipline of criticism.

"Exquisite, polished, cerebral, and yet filled with womanly, workaday reflections, Hadas' work reminds us that poetry is both celebration and a craft to be honed carefully."--Library Journal
