The long-awaited collection of poems by award-winning (Nebraska Review Award, Aldrich Emerging Poets Award) poet Scott Edward Anderson spans twenty-five years of his writing, including individual poems that have appeared in such publications as the American Poetry Review, Alaska Quarterly Review, Anon, The Cortland Review, CrossConnect, Many Mountains Moving, and Terrain, among other publications. Anderson brings to life on the page his deep engagement with the natural world -- and our human relationship with each other and our impact on the Earth -- in poetry that is both accessible and intellectually stimulating. With an acute attention to craft and a clarity of language, Anderson offers a book of poems that demonstrates the precision and range of his poetic vision. "I was impressed by Anderson's engagement with nature -- especially the way in which his lyrical lines sketch the profound relationship between humans and their environment."--Jonathan Galassi, author of Left-handed: Poems

From the Author:

My poetry is rooted in nature and grounded in what Robert Hass called the "strong central tradition of free verse made out of both romanticism and modernism, split between the impulses of an inward and psychological writing and an outward and realist one, at its best fusing the two." (Hass, Introduction to Best American Poetry 2001)

I studied with Hass and with Gary Snyder, along with the late Walter Pavlich, and received some great mentoring and advice from poets Alison Hawthorne Deming, Donald Hall, Colette Inez, and Karen Swenson, as well as wonderful friends and readers.

My poetry is informed by a deep engagement with the natural world, attuned to the smallest details and complexities of nature and our experience of place. Attentiveness and mindfulness are critical to my method of working, both as the poem first evolves and later, through the often rigorous process of revision.

I believe poetry is the most direct language with which to approach our place in the world and reconnect us to nature. By nature, I mean not only the natural world, but also the built environment; not only the processes and causal powers of the physical world, but our immediate experience of the spiritual and the non-human.

For the past twenty five years, I have been building a body of poetry that tries to achieve my goal of writing that is open, approachable, and eminently readable, at the same time that it is intellectual and revels in the joy of language. 

FALLOW FIELD represents the best of my poetry over the past quarter century. I hope you enjoy it.--Scott Edward Anderson

From the Back Cover:

"Scott Edward Anderson's poems honor the reality that the things of the world - rye grass, fall warblers, ravens, owls, 'Sargassum drifting/ in a pelagic wave,' lovers and sourdough bread - speak to and for our innerness. Here the sense of place is not simply a matter of geography, but of feeling one's way into that sense of becoming that makes one's path clear. The book's fourth section is comprised of poems that beautifully embrace the very human need to join the inner and outer, a territory defined, as the poem titles suggest, by 'Becoming,' 'Shapeshifting,' 'Cultivating,' 'Mapping,' and 'Healing.' Guided since childhood, as the book's closing long poem relates, by nature's teaching, Anderson is devoted to finding the words for what it means to dwell mindfully among others on the wounded earth." --Alison Hawthorne Deming, author of Rope: Poems
"I was impressed by Anderson's engagement with nature -- especially the way in which his lyrical lines sketch the profound relationship between humans and their environment." 
--Jonathan Galassi, author of Left-handed: Poems
