Endgame ...

... “The final dwarf of you”: late-life poems of Wallace Stevens, T.S. Eliot, and Czesław Miłosz | The Book Haven.

The subject of the poet’s approaching winter holds an increasing fascination for me … well, we are all growing older. But growing older has been a great surprise – the psychological landscape and vantage points of late summer and autumn are not at all what I had been told or had been expecting.

The final quotation from Milosz is astounding.
