Postscripts by Daryl Hine
Postscripts is Daryl Hine's first new book of lyrics in thirteen years. It follows the publication of his long narrative poem In and Out (see back of jacket) and his translation Theocritus: Idylls and Epigrams. It perfectly represents the many facets of his poetic genius: classical learning, wit, an unrivaled sense of metrics, and how to apply them to the brilliant coneits that are his poems. Of his past work John Hollander has said, "There are very few poets as good as Daryl Hine, and almost none like him."
