Left Coast Writers®: David Hathwell - The Power of Telling (San Francisco Ferry Building Store)

In The Power of the Telling, his shining collection, David Hathwell gathers his previously published poems together with new poems, enhancing the luster of the whole with illuminating commentaries.

Hathwell's finely crafted poems have won wide acclaim. Richard Wilbur, twice winner of the Pulitzer Prize, praised the leading poem in Muses as "concretely evocative, with a clear flow of argument, and a seriousness that allows itself to be locally playful." California poet laureate Dana Gioia commended Hathwell for "writing with quiet intensity about significant things." These qualities distinguish Hathwell's poems overall.

Hathwell has published two prior collections, Muses and Between Dog and Wolf.
