From Homer to Heaney poetry has been an ever present part of the literary landscape. Deftly crafting language that resonates with the eye and ear to express the range of human feelings, hopes, and emotions can make those otherwise intangibles very concrete for the reader and listener. From simple rhyme to hypnotic rhythms a good poem promotes wonderful wordsmithing while doling out a dose of wisdom. Check out local poet Samuel Hazo and let him draw you into his world of words and rhythms!

And the time is: poems, 1958-2013

Pittsburgh poet and Professor Samuel Hazo has published more than 30 books throughout his writing career. This volume collects poems related to themes all of us can relate to: love, family, and aging.
