About this title


David Whyte's body of work reflects the depth and breadth of a maturing artist, taking its readers on a passage through time and place, allowing us to bear witness to the constellation of difficulties, triumphs, adventures, losses, hopes and revelations that have shaped one particular human life. RIVER FLOW contains over one hundred poems selected from five previously published works, together with twenty-three new poems, including a tribute to an Ethiopian woman navigating her first escalator, a meditation of love and benediction for his young daughter, and a cycle of Irish poems that convey his deep love of the land and life-long appreciation for its wisdom. Within its covers are poems to be read and reread, poems that are sure to become companions on our own passage through the turbulent waters of a well-lived, well-loved life.

About the Author:

David Whyte makes his home in the Pacific Northwest, where rain and changeable skies remind him of his other, more distant homes: Yorkshire, Wales and Ireland. He travels and lectures throughout the world, bringing his own and others' poetry to large audiences. He holds a degree in Marine Zoology, and is an Associate Fellow of Templeton College and the Said Business School at the University of Oxford. David Whyte is the author of six volumes of poetry and two best-selling books of prose: "Crossing the Unknown Sea: Work as a Pilgrimage of Identity" and "The Heart Aroused: Poetry and the Preservation of the Soul in Corporate America," as well as an audio lecture series.
