Summary: Accessible and wry, at times comic, and often mournful, Daniel Anderson's poetry is relentlessly attentive to the splendors of the natural world. But the poems collected here -- previously published in such leading literary journals as Poetry, The Kenyon Review, The Southern Review, The Yale Review, New England Review, and Southwest Review -- are not relegated simply to the realm of pastoral meditation. They give voice to the sorrowful and sometimes unfortunate things w
e say and think. They chronicle, with both precision and care, the many ways in which jubilation and lament frequently reverse themselves. Above all else, each poem crystallizes in its wake a freshly minted moment, one that articulates an experience that reaches beyond the poet's own time and place. Sunflowers drenched in early evening sun; icy blue, explosive waves along the rocky shores of Maine; September cotton ''like strange anachronistic snow'' in Tennessee -- Anderson forges these images into deep ruminations on love, shame, delight, loss, and estrangement.
