Abstract

The late Richard Hugo looked to the small towns and daily life of Montana's people for subjects which triggered his poetic genius. His passion for the ordinary, the neglected, and the lonely, takes form against the backdrop of ranches, bars, and main streets along the two-lane highways of the West. Much of his poetry reflects the bleakness of western landscapes; at the same time, it reaffirms the bond between people and place and the enduring significance that the American West holds for all Americans.
