About this title


“Revell is a writer of singular talent and ambition . . . he takes the reader to unfamiliar and strange places and, in the process, he creates some of the most beautiful poetry in our language.”—Harvard Review

For over 20 years, Donald Revell has used the pastoral as a tool of protest/revolution against violence and war and as a guide to peace, arguing for personal, natural and political growth in precise, delicate lyrics. Pennyweight Windows: New and Selected Poems includes a powerful new group of poems and much of the finest work from Revell’s eight previous collections. Strong political and antiwar themes make this collection highly relevant to today’s most important cultural and political debates.

From The Pennyweight Woods

I ran into the woods to find the red house.
But what is the use of a house without
A planet to put it on? I mean, without Peace?
Until the armies disperse,
It is better to cook my food with broken glass
Than with fire.

The black & white cinema wants to know
Where have they taken our Lord?
The beetle asks the flowers at Beauvoir,

Change is change.
Here is my eye when I was a baby.
It is clean for you now
And for the rest of the family
Helping the sunshine over there.
