Robert Hayden (1913-1980), the first African-American to be appointed Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress-a position now titled U.S. Poet Laureate-stands out among twentieth-century American poets, not just for his many literary accomplishments but also for the strong vision of faith that illuminates so much of his work. Collected in this definitive edition are well-known poems such as "Those Winter Sundays" and "The Whipping," along with other equally moving poems including "Aunt Jemima of the Ocean Waves," which depicts a conversation with a woman from a Coney Island sideshow, and "Belsen, Day of Liberation," dedicated to Rosey Pool, the Dutch teacher of Anne Frank and the first translator of her famous diary. "Hayden was a remembrancer, a poet of faith and superb execution, and one of the best teachers by example one can find in the poetry of the twentieth century, or in any age."-Michael S. Harper
