About this title

Synopsis:

 Although Kathleen Norris’s best-selling Dakota: A Spiritual Geography has brought her to the attention of many thousands of readers, she is first and last a poet.  Like Robert Frost, another poet identified with a particular landscape, she can reveal the miraculous in the ordinary, and she writes with clarity, humor, and deep sympathy for her subjects.

Review:

Kathleen Norris is best known for Dakota, her nonfiction book of "spiritual geography." This collection works much the same territory. Norris finds the sacred in the simple as in the poem "Hide and Seek," in which "A thunderclap/ rakes the field of sleep," and becomes a consecration. "Perennials" is a wonderful poem about the undeserved grace from a neglected garden. As the title suggests, this book balances fragility with power, in form and in content.
