Overview:Walking Toward the Sun - In 1936, twenty-year-old Edward Weismiller became the youngest poet to win the prestigious Yale Series of Younger Poets prize. Today, more than sixty years later, he retains that distinction. Yale University Press here reintroduces Edward Weismiller-now the oldest living Younger Poet-with the publication of his latest book of poetry. Weismiller's is "a talent that has kept faith with itself and its sources," says W. S. Merwin, current judge of the Younger Poets Series.In Walking Toward the Sun, youthful lyricism has given way to plainness of speech-even spareness. These poems are honest and unflinching, always striking in their prosody. They will remind some readers of Yeats, for they convey nobility in the face of old age, infirmity, and disappointment. Weismiller sings powerfully about a world of loss, but he is never grim or despairing. The poet in old age remains hopeful, open to possibility, and always aware of beauty in the smallest places.
