In Clayfeld Rejoices, Clayfeld Laments, Robert Pack has created an American picaresque hero of chance, choice and fate. Through Clayfeld, a comic everyman, Pack explores the nature of beauty, sorrow, and art, as well as the potential for happiness. Thwarted continually by ordinary defeats, Clayfeld endures and laughs, loves and remembers. An odyssey bursting with life in all its imperfections. Clayfeld Rejoices, Clayfeld Laments is a joyous and exuberant narration of an inextinguishable character whose spirit triumphs through humor in this vigorous book.
Robert Pack
Robert Pack has been called an heir to Robert Frost and Edwin Arlington Robinson. His poems and prose are, like Frost's, reflective, philosophical, and intrinsically linked to New England. Pack studied at Dartmouth College and Columbia University and has taught at Barnard College and Middlebury College, where he was served as director of the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference from 1973 to 1995, perhaps its most influential years. He is currently Distinguished Senior Professor in the Davidson Honors College at the University of Montana - Missoula.
