By Robert Wrigley
A strong new assortment from an award-winning poet.
on the center of Robert Wrigley's new booklet are the fears that locate us on the darkest occasions and the hopes we upward thrust to every morning. those poems discover that time the place the sacred and the profane come jointly, that position of good looks contained in the gruesome and the gruesome inside of what's appealing. The legislation of nature, the commandments of capitalism, and the foundations of warfare are reworked into songs of longing, patriotism, and dissent; we're additionally reminded of the grace living within the glimpse of a horse lower than a whole moon or the preserved lock of a lover's hair. Elegiac and lyrical, playful and offended, Beautiful Country bargains a imaginative and prescient of a rustic that's unflinching, challenging, and generous.
