Late is a chamber-piece of great restraint and great beauty. It is a single, powerful sequence, dedicated to the poet's wife, children, and grandchildren, in which he meditates late in the day at the end of summer on the world he will leave behind. Late draws together the abiding concerns of Hamburger's poetry: the cycles of the passage of time, the interrelation of past and present, of continuity and change, in both the natural and the social worlds.
