"The most expansive and moving poet to come out of the American Midwest since James Wright."―Marilyn Hacker

Midwest Eclogue is a profound dialogue between the heartland and the heart. David Baker's devotions are erotic and familial, natural and environmental, literary and social. Inspired by the landscape of the Midwest, Baker's landscape of human passions―haunted by roots and wings―is rendered in a rich and polyphonic craft.

About the Author:

David Baker’s last collection was Never-Ending Birds, which won the Theodore Roethke Memorial Poetry Prize. His many honors include fellowships and awards from the Poetry Society of America, the Pushcart Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Guggenheim Foundation. Baker lives in Granville, Ohio, is the poetry editor of the Kenyon Review, and is the Thomas B. Fordham Chair of Poetry and Professor of English at Denison University.

From Booklist:

Virgil was the grand master of the game Baker plays. The great Roman's bucolic clogues, which depicted the sensuality and even rank eroticism of rural life, established a genre that has lasted through two millennia and that Baker revives majestically and tenderly. Although erudite and handy with allusions to John Clare, Walt Whitman, and Robert Burton, Baker never wanders too far from the natural world that entrances and mystifies him. His daughter's hyperactivity becomes a moment of mystery when her brain and body are paradoxically calmed by stimulants. So does a frightened horse's sudden storm of fear that leaves him bleeding, awed, intensely alive. These are surprisingly gracious, almost casual poems, despite their impeccable formalism and unreserved learnedness. Masterful and moving, they make up a book that lives up to the historic resonance in its title. Patricia Monaghan
