A new collection of poems musing on mortality and love from one of the most enduring poets of our time.

"Hazo speaks in these poems with impressive clarity, honesty, intelligence and courage. By turns philosophical and political, Hazo does not suffer fools gladly. . . . Here is a poet who understands not only language, but silence. We would do well to listen to the words and silences of Samuel Hazo."—Martín Espada, award-winning poet and author of Vivas to Those Who Have Failed: Poems

"These poems are engaging, personally warm, and stylistically poised, cultured and full of concern for family and friends. The candid voice of a man preoccupied with mortality and delighted with the details of a life among those he loves is an exemplary pleasure."—Brooks Haxton, author of They Lift Their Wings to Cry

Praise for Like a Man Gone Mad
"This is poetry of maturity, of wisdom. . . . A beautiful book— distilled from years and years of living and writing."—Adam Zagajewski, author of Without End: New and Selected Poems

"Hazo’s poems advance with wit, irony, and insightful commentary on many subjects, aphoristic thinking a key trait of his signature."—The Hudson Review
