The Rescued Year: Poems.
by [Poetry] Stafford, William.

Publisher Information:
Harper & Row,, New York:: 1981..

A Fine copy in a Near Fine price-clipped dust jacket. In "The Rescued Year" Stafford deepens both his technique and his autobiographical associations, especially in the twenty memory-pieces of the opening section. Here the influence of Life Studies is evident, . A calm austerity, careful naturalistic details, muted rhymes and flexible cadences singularly express a subdued moral pathos, an intermingling of past and present, a commentary on one's allegiances, hopes, doubts, defeats. Symbolist strains, as well as social and political attitudes, inform the book as a whole; but it is the recurring imagery of seasons, landscapes, and particular people which best signify Stafford's instinctively humane temperament, the genuineness of his concerns, the lovely integrity of his lines.
