Description: Summer Lake beautifully coherent compilation of Huddle's best poetry to date, chronicles one late-twentieth-century American life, disclosing the anthropology of the human spirit. The collection opens with a plainness of language and form born of the poet's native Blue Ridge Mountains and builds to an amalgamation of free and formal variety, including sonnets and a lengthy poem in terza rima. It pauses over vivid childhood moments, visits the wounds from a "Tour of Duty" in Vietnam, and enters into that passage of deep adulthood during which one's parents fall ill and die. These are ordinary life events, rendered with uncanny penetration and at times open, even angry, despair. When all is said and done, though, the last two lines of the book recall "my mother cooking supper / my father whistling as he walked home from work."
