As editor Mark Goldstein writes in the preface, “[Hall is] a prismatic figure who refracts a vast spectrum of poetical energies outward toward his Elsewhere Community. These vitalities are central to many of the pieces included here, for it is Hall’s nature to be a supportive person, both in friendship and in poetry. It is among these pages that his chosen community has taken the opportunity to give thanks to Hall, now a septuagenarian, as we say a collective amen.”
