THE HOLYOKE was the first collection of poems by one of Americas distinctive voices in contemporary poetry. Here, Frank X. Gaspar establishes his landscape, his straightforward diction, his precise observation, and his loyalty to his roots-qualities never abandoned and developed throughout his later work.

As a whole, the book can be read as an elegy to a lost word-one peopled with fishermen and laborers and wives and mothers, all adhering, to one degree or another, to an Old-World Catholic way of life. The old ones, the velhos and velhas, still speak in the old tongue and dream of the green hills of their Azorean homeland. That world has largely vanished, but it is not completely lost, for the poet keeps it alive, first in memory and then in art.

THE HOLYOKE explores the small raptures and terrors, the jubiliations and laments, of a life both profoundly sensed and gracefully examined.
