Samuel Hazo's voice is distinctive in contemporary American poetry. In some sixty years of writing, he has produced thirty collections praised by critics and fellow poets. In The Feast of Icarus, this master of the lyric turns to prose poems as he surveys his life and art. In more than a hundred brief blocks of type - each alive with sensation and good sense - Hazo gives voice to a whole life, with all its ordinary love, labor, desire, and grief.
