Description

Why I Haven't Written takes Phil Hall back to Ontario roots in family immediate and extended, and on again into the larger world. In his beautifully-controlled poems, he catches much of a life in nodes of consequence-often painful for the poet, but not for the reader. The life may have seemed ill-fitting to the one who blundered or was buffeted through much of it, but in the long run it made him compassionate and observant.
