Summary

Jane Kenyon was nineteen years younger than Donald Hall and a student poet at the University of Michigan when they met. Hall was her teacher. The Best Day the Worst Day is an intimate record of their twenty-three-year marriage at Eagle Pond Farm -- of their shared rituals of writing, close attention to pets and gardening, and love in the afternoon. Hall joyfully records Jane Kenyon's growing power as a poet and the couple's careful accommodations toward each other as writers. This portrait of the inner moods of 'the best marriage I know about," as Hall has written, is laid against the stark medical emergency of Jane's leukemia, which ended her life in fifteen months. Hall shares with readers -- as if we were one of the grieving neighbors, friends, and relatives -- the daily ordeal of Jane's dying, through heartbreaking and generous storytelling.

The Best Day the Worst Day stands alongside Elegy to Iris as a powerful testimony to both loss and love.
