About the Author:



Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry for The Flying Change, Henry Taylor has published seven previous poetry collections as well as the critical work Compulsory Figures: Essays on Recent American Poets. His other honors include the Michael Braude Award for Light Verse and the Witter Bynner Prize, both from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters; the Aiken Taylor Award for Modern American Poetry; and membership in the Fellowship of Southern Writers. He lives in the Puget Sound area of Washington with his wife.

From Booklist:

The poems in Taylor's vivid new collection are about a place and some people who have lived there for generations: Taylor's own family, Quaker farmers in Loudoun County, Virginia, since the late eighteenth century, and their neighbors. In a few pages of loose blank verse, Taylor does what his fellow writer of place, Wendell Berry, often takes a short story to accomplish, fully realizing a character through imagery and carefully chosen incident. Here, as virtually as literature could present anyone, are Taylor's grandfather, whose heart was as true as his eye (even in old age, he could catch without breaking a long-tossed egg barehanded); a feckless day-laborer neighbor; and another neighbor's daughter's artist husband--Arshile Gorky. At the center of the book, done up in quatrains, is Carrie Taylor's letter to a sister about General Sheridan's blazing 1864 passage through the county. Buffering the long narratives are meditative lyrics inspired by a recent walk along the creek that waters the Taylor lands; they are melancholy, for the poet no longer lives there. Ray Olson
