About the Author:

Engels has taught English Literature at St. Michael's College in Winooski, Vermont for many years

From Booklist:

Engels takes to heart the old conceit that each man is Adam and each woman Eve in verse monologues--now his, now hers--delivered in Vermont, where the couple has settled into a house with a garden and a yard full of trees. As the poems report, the two tend the garden, appreciate the trees and visiting fauna, observe the changing seasons, occasionally lie sleepless at night, sometimes talk to (perhaps) God, focus on some detail in the house, wonder whether they hear a voice now and then, and mull over mortality, immortality, and the past. The poems constitute a long contemplation-in-passing of natural and artificial beauty, the apprehension of which is enabled, Adam and Eve believe, by their capacity for naming things. Engels has shown himself to be a thrillingly precise poet of domestic nature before (see the nature poems in Walking to Cootehill, 1993); here he informs that capability with a theology of the word.
