Clean, tight, unmarked; absolute minimal wear; appears unread; In elegy, subversive call, song or meditation, Wendel Berry's clear yet complex vision of what it means to be human is rare in American poetry. In these 100 poems, drawn from nine previous collections. Berry's play of sound and syntax moves in our minds idle something just remembered, and remains with us like an afterimage on the eye. He loves the pleasure of daily work outdoors - and his love of family and community is centered in a place on earth. As an activist and farmer, Berry's poems are balanced by reverence. With care and fidelity, his recurring themes luminence into examples of faith, fortitude, and action. In these scattershot days of spins and pulls, e-mails and answering machines, this book is a contemplative and inspiring hymns to life.
