Summary

August Kleinzahler has earned admiration for his musical, precise poems that are grounded in the people, places and language among which he has lived. Snow Approaching On The Hudson is a collection of poetry that moves back and forth across the country and abroad, and through the realm of dreams, past and present, and inner and outer landscapes. The haunting, shifting atmosphere Kleinzahler creates is peopled by characters intimate, historical and imaginary.

Kleinzahler’s signature rhythmic propulsion serves as the engine for his newest collection, and his always-masterful free verse conveys a life thoroughly lived and brilliantly perceived.
