Wayfare



Winner of the John Burroughs Medal for Lifetime Achievement in Nature Poetry

A lively collection from one of America's most celebrated contemporary poets

Denise Levertov has called acclaimed poet Pattiann Rogers "a visionary of reality, perceiving the material world with such intensity of response that impulse, intention, meaning, interconnections beyond the skin of appearance are revealed." In her new collection, Rogers takes the reader on an exploration of human endeavor. Full of color and action, wonder and fear, these poems investigate, reflect upon, and create experiences relative to music, art, and theater, as well as to the universe and its creatures, large and small. They are distinguished by the penetrating vision and avid imagination that have made Rogers one of today's most outstanding poets.

Praise for Wayfare

Praise for Wayfare “Alive to the earth’s scents, moods, and variety, her gaze reveals nature’s power and terror, but also its grace and comedy. Like God’s answer to Job from the whirlwind, Rogers’s work locates in the animal, vegetable, and mineral world a theology more profound than abstract systematics could ever offer.” Image   “Wayfare is a book of yearning and fulfillment, of folding and unfolding, of peering and pressing. Through Rogers’s curiosity, wit, boundless love of the world, and remarkable dexterity as a poet, we are altered.” Orion
