The second of Stanford's published works, Ladies from Hell helped to establish his reputation as "one of the great voices of death" (Best American Poetry). Published in the same year that he married the painter Ginny Crouch, the volume reveals Stanford's connection to the land as he meditated on human existence. A haunting and exceptional collection.
