Rafbók.
The prize-winning poet’s collection of autobiographical poems is “the work of a master, all the more poignant for its frankness … in the face of tragedy” (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette).

One of America’s most celebrated poets, Donald Hall was at the height of his powers when he wrote The Old Life. Intimate, anecdotal and often funny, these autobiographical poems follow Hall from his boyhood to his developing acquaintance with fellow poets—including seniors like Robert Frost and contemporaries like Robert Bly. They chronicle Hall’s growing into manhood, fatherhood, grandfatherhood, and a happy second marriage.

In the final poem, “Without, ” Hall laments the illness of his late wife, Jane Kenyon.

“These autobiographical poems are free of self-pity, engagingly frank without being in any sense ‘confessional, ’ and often wildly comical … All are first-rate. ” —Minneapolis Star-Tribune
