In this extraordinary debut collection, David Hamilton revitalises and extends American pastoral writing with an uncanny ability to conjure memories of childhood and moments of spiritual and physical encounter. His gift lies in combining these themes of discovery with a lyrical intelligence never far from natural speech, all delivered with profound sensitivity for people, place and natural beauty.

About the Author:

David Hamilton edits The Iowa Review and teaches English literature at the University of Iowa. With degrees from Amherst College (AB) and the University of Virginia (PhD), he taught in Colombia and at the University of Michigan before taking his present position. The University of Missouri Press published his Deep River (2001), a memoir embedded in local history reaching far into the archaeological record. In 1992, he was a Fulbright Professor in Valencia, Spain.

Review:

Hamilton never practises self-absorption, let alone self-aggrandizement. A consistent philosophical stance emerges, wherein what is outside the self, what is Nature, is given precedence. He has still another side, though: a playful and oblique poet who will not refuse found poems. A deeper indicator of Hamilton's complex sensibility is his simultaneous interest in Old English poetry and Gertrude Stein.--John Taylor "Michigan Quarterly Review "

Whether the poet is grappling with love (or the loss of love), a friend's urge to die, man's very slight place in nature. "impermanence" (as he puts it), or the paradoxes of our unique tool for comprehending the world, language, he emphasizes the unanswerable questions that face us all.--John Taylor "Michigan Quarterly Review "

Book Description Salt Publishing, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Believing in invention as the art of finding things, David Hamilton has been concerned with finding what, in memory, in nature, in his reading, and in daily events, suggests a poem. Some of the results are found poems in the strict sense, as he samples and refashions existing texts; other poems in this remarkable book could be said to be found in the extended sense of being discovered in memory or by observation. Comprising free verse lyrics as well as poems in recognizable forms, Hamilton demonstrates an extraordinary range, including a series of upside down sonnets, upsodounnets as Chaucer might have said. The long title poem carries finding to an extreme as Hamilton condenses journal entries to a collage of lyrical notes. Observation of nature is a primary subject, but not far behind comes material from daily life and the world of art - from paintings and from other texts, both early and recent.
