The winning volume in the 1985 Yales Series of Younger Poets competition is George Bradley's Terms to Be Met. As James Merrill, distinguished poet and judge of the competition, has said: George Bradley belongs to a tradition of philosophical poets that includes Lucretius and Wallace Stevens. His lines are long, unfreighted, the easier to lift us to high and distant places, and to teach us to listen for 'the sound of the sun.'
