"The Farther Shore is eloquent, accomplished, fully articulated poetry. ... Kane's poet voice is grave, gentle, perfectly modulated and almost infinitely sensitive and accurate."  Harold Bloom.

"Forty-two disturbingly quiet poems, mesmerizing in their opaqueness, about what it is like for us to live 'so far beneath the sky.' In Paul Kane's verse, a dark echo of Robert Frost is sounded in a thoroughly modern landscape."  Joseph Brodsky.

 


Paul Kane, a poet, teaches at Vassar College. He is the co-editor of the Library of America’s Ralph Waldo Emerson: Complete Poems and Translations, and editor of Poetry of the American Renaissance, published by Braziller.
