Otherwise: New & Selected Poems
Poetry for the human experience
It was this anthology of poetry that transformed my mother from a woman who dislikes poetry to a woman who reads it every day. I read her one poem and got her hooked. Jane Kenyen speaks directly to her reader, using simple images and plain language, capturing experiences that often feel familiar and sometimes reminding us of their meaning and significance. This is not poetry that could be ...
Above the River: The Complete Poems
Farrar, Straus and Giroux
Universality in Regional Voice
This collection of Wright's work includes his experiments with formal blank verse, translations of German poets, experimental prose pieces, and characteristic free verse that made him one of America's strongest national poets with a regional identity. Wright's topics range from the pastoral landscape of people, wildlife, and industry near his Ohio hometown to the philosophical challenges of ...
To Read Literature
Donald Hall's Critical Analysis Masterpeice
Donald Hall takes his College and University Audience through all phases of the critical analysis process for Fiction, Poetry and Drama.

The Oxford Illustrated Book of American Children's Poems
Oxford University Press, USA
Great book of poetry your children will love
I bought this book to go with an American History cirriculum and we read a poem every couple of days. Under the author of each poem is the date in which they lived, so I can say stuff like, "oh look, this woman wrote this poem during the time when Abraham Lincoln was president" and it helps tie everything together for everyone. Also, the poems are great fun and not boring at all. It is a ...
Without a doubt the most perfect, most human example of poetry I have ever read. I could not make it through this very slim volume in a months time. I both ached for and feared the next page. I love my Wife more than I love my next breath. This is how that love feels. This is what it is like to live without.
A Beautiful, Comforting Story About a Family Working Together
This beautifully written story follows a year in the life of a 19th-Century New England family. It echoes the style of Donald Hall's poetic version of the story, which probably preceded this book. In the first scene, the Ox-Cart Man loads his cart with goods to drive into town: wool, knitted goods, woven flax, hand-whittled brooms, shingles, and so on. As he loads the cart, the narrator ...
I Am the Dog I Am the Cat
A Perfect Depiction of Dogs and Cats
I Am the Dog I Am the Cat doesn't tell a story - instead it tells about the characters of a cat and a dog. Anyone who has ever owned either will recognize the essence of the animals in Hall's excellent verse, while Moser's elegant illustrations capture the dog and the cat beautifully. I recommend this book to anyone who has ever had a pet or ever hopes to have one. Excellent for reading ...
The Best Day the Worst Day: Life with Jane Kenyon
Mariner Books, 2005
Heartbreaking, eloquent and real
Although this is so overtly a chronicle of losing a loved one, about the horrors of cancer and its various treatments, it is also a very real picture of what makes a good and lasting marriage. Although Hall and Kenyon knew the odds of their union lasting were very slim, given the 19-year age difference and her bipolar illness, they took the plunge, Hall noting that "all marriages start in ...
Florida Butterfly Caterpillars and Their Host Plants
MARC C. MINNO
JERRY F. BUTLER
University Press of Florida
Florida Butterfly Caterpillars and their host plants
Excellent book. My back yard garden is devoted to butterfly nectar and host plants and have found this book invaluable when I needed to identify a caterpillar that I had not seen before. Photographs of the caterpillar are opposite a sketch of the Florida peninsula that show the habitat range of that butterfly. Also photographs of host plants, their habitat and the larvae that eat them. This is ...
Literary and Cultural Theory: From Basic Principles to Advanced Applications
Donald E. Hall
Excellent resource for comparing different schools of literary criticism
This was a terrific book for students of literary criticism. I myself went to a university that was completely devoted to deconstructionism, except for the South American department, which was heavily Marxist. You could go there for years and never hear a word about any other kind of literary criticism. This book really enhanced my education--and no, I didn't order it for a class. I just ...
White Apples and the Taste of Stone: Selected Poems 1946-2006
Beauty and Power
I feel somewhat embarrassed to say that Donald Hall was not a poet I was familiar with until just recently. And what a great thing I have been missing. I realized that Donald Hall was in a very old anthology I have from 1963 called "The Modern Poets." There is a jaunty photo of him smoking a cigar. The Bio does not mention his wife Jane Kenyon. What a powerful effect these poems had on me. ...
Unpacking the Boxes: A Memoir of a Life in Poetry
Houghton Mifflin, 2008
A Memoir of Compelling Grace
Like many people who do not follow contemporary poetry, much less read it, I wasn't conscious of Donald Hall until I read a review of his Unpacking The Boxes in the New York Times. Immediately it went onto my "To Be Read" list, and I'm glad it did. What struck me beyond all else is Hall's balance as a person, and his willingness to write about himself honestly. In these days of so many ...
Breaking Through Depression: A Biblical and Medical Approach to Emotional Wholeness
Donald P. Hall
Harvest House Publishers
A MUST for pastors and churches
A GREAT BOOK THAT SHOULD BE IN EVERY CHURCH LIBRARY AND REQUIRED READING AT EVERY SEMINARY IT PROVIDES AN EXCELLENT LAYMAN"S EXPLANATION OF A COMPLEX MEDICAL CONDITION THAT AFFECTS SO MANY
Writing Well (9th Edition)
Excellent educational tool
I want to review this book even though I have a copy of the 1973 edition of this book only. Hall illuminates writing in a way that makes writing interesting. I've never considered myself a writer. Most of my educational as well as personal pursuits could be classified as "left-brained", and although I can appreciate good poetry and literature, I have maintained a disdain for attempting to produce ...
Hall's best book
I am a big fan of Donald Hall's writing, both poetry and prose. This is my favorite and the one that made me think the most. It allows one to put one's life in perspective, realize the importance of life and work. We all aren't as lucky as Hall has been to work at what we love, but the book makes you think about how work can become more worthwhile. Deep and enjoyable.
String Too Short to Be Saved (Nonpareil Books, No. 5)
David R Godine
A very poetic and wise account of a fading world that the author was lucky enough to be a part of. Quite moving in places, funny in others. A very satisfying book.
Claims for Poetry (Poets on Poetry)
University of Michigan Press
It was assigned as a textbook for class, but I've fallen in love with this book. It helps clarify my own opinions about poetry and writing in general. There's not a lot of poetry in it, but a lot of amazing opinions about it. Highly recommended reading.
Longman Higher Education
superb for writing courses
A Writer's Reader has always been my first choice as a text for beginning college writing courses because of its rich variety of form and content and the insightful and very readable commentary by Donald Hall. This new edition contains many recent additions by contemporary writers but also retains most of the classic essays that have been favorites of mine and so superbly illustrate the ...
