"Over the course of nineteen collections of poems, Charles Wright has built 'one of the truly distinctive bodies of poetry created in the second half of the twentieth century'"(David Young, Contemporary Poets). Bye-and-Bye, which brings together selections from Wright's more recent work--including the entirety of Littlefoot, Wright's moving, book-length meditation on mortality--showcases the themes and images that have defined his mature work: the true affinity between writer and subject, human and nature; the tenuous relationship between description and actuality; and the search for a truth that transcends change and death. Bye-and-Bye is a wonderful introduction to the late work of one of America's finest and best-loved poets"--Provided by publisher. "A selection of the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet's best mature work"--Provided by publisher.
