Lasting is an anthology of poems about aging that, together, tell a playful and profound story. From portraits of aged people to experiences of getting old to the finality of aging and death, the book is a deep and often funny journey. The anthology includes 158 poems by Kim Addonizio, Robert Bly, Billy Collins, Philip Dacey, Toi Derricotte, Rita Dove, Stephen Dunn, Donald Finkel, Tess Gallagher, Dana Gioia, Donald Hall, X.J. Kennedy, Maxine Kumin, Jane Hirshfield, Dorianne Laux, Li-Young Lee, Philip Levine, W.S. Merwin, Marge Piercy, Pattiann Rogers, W.D. Snodgrass, Gary Soto, Chase Twichell, C.K. Williams, Charles Wright, and many more. Taken together, the poems become a conversation with questions and answers, with the exchange and play of fine talk. Lasting is, finally, a collective coming to terms with mortality
