About this title:

Synopsis: Book by

From Publishers Weekly: Although one may at first question the aesthetic value of an anthology that brings together poems about the seemingly unprovocative theme of American farms, even a quick perusal of this remarkable collection should dispel any doubts about thepk project's worthiness. A passionate commitment to the subject of farm life is what makes these poems so engaging, so moving and so memorable. Among the most affecting are Donald Hall's "Maple Syrup," in which the speaker finds a 25-year-old can of syrup prepared by his grandfather, long since passed away, and marvels at "the sweetness preserved, of a dead man"; Ai's shocking "The Country Midwife: A Day," in which "the stink of birth" is an unavoidable aspect of a baby's delivery; Wendell Berry's "Prayers and Sayings of the Mad Farmer" ("When I fall / let me fall without regret / like a leaf"); and Roger Weingarten's "These Obituaries of Rattlesnakes Being Eaten by the Hogs," detailing the poet's observations of the routine of a country veterinarian. Other writers represented include James Dickey, Maxine Kumin, William Stafford and Galway Kinnell. Marconi is a poet and farmer.
