Red Hawk’s poetry has long been acclaimed by his fellow poets, Pulitzer Prize winners and National Book Award Finalists, for its gutsy honesty, plain language, and consummate skill.
Never is that poetic skill in rendering the truth more evident than in this, his fifth book of poetry. It has some of his best poems ever, including a group of sonnets on which he’s been working for thirty years. Now, in the words of Miller Williams and Coleman Barks, Red Hawk is the only American poet doing groundbreaking, award worthy work in the sonnet form popularized by Robert Frost and William Shakespeare.
