50 Years of Books to Remember: Best Words Best Order: Poets with passion and polish
Annotation:Precise and elegant poetry about the current problems facing man in the sixties. (Two of Lowell's finest books of poetry were combined and published in 1967 with a new title - Life Studies, and For the Union Dead.)
Annotation:A major American poet's own selection of her work which serves not only as a retrospective, but also as "the graph of a process still going on."
