BeschreibungOf the early work of Allen Grossman, the late Robert Fitzgerald once wrote: "At times they seem poems of great age, poems at the world's verge, at the verge of time." Of the later work, Jorie Graham observed: "In (his) marriage of means -- part almanac, part allegory, part advice column, obituary page, hymnal, epic drama -- from the bottom reaches of the underworld, to the elevations from which one need cry out to be heard -- Grossman invents such peace as Poetry can invent." In Sweet Youth, the younger poet and the older one meet at an eternal moment and a dialogue in poetry ensues, as the Allen Grossman of 2001 and the Allen Grossman of nearly fifty years earlier respond to one another's words.
