Rascally

From a review of Unpacking the Boxes: A Memoir of a Life in Poetry, in the Book Review section of the Times (November 9, 2008). The memoir is by the poet Donald Hall; the review of the memoir is by Peter Stevenson.

"In 1969 he met Jane Kenyon, then a young poetry student; they married three years later and soon moved to Eagle Pond, where well-received verses and essays about rural life continued to pour out of Hall as he grew a beard and paunch appropriate to America's image of a rascally farmer-poet."
