New York: Harper & Row, 1984. Hardcover. First U.S. edition. 125. A fine book in a near fine dust jacket. A review copy with publisher's material and author photograph laid into the book. Critics frequently call Hughes one of the best poets of his generation, and one of the twentieth century's greatest writers. The 47 poems here are about fishing and rivers, but so much more. Said Faber, his English publisher: "Inspired by Hughes's love of fishing and by his environmental activism, the poems are a deftly and passionately attentive chronicle of change over the course of the seasons."
