Synopsis: The poems of Split the Lark record one man's mission to find the mythic in the social, the crucial in the casual, the supernatural in the natural. R. T. Smith's precise images and quietly modulated music cast a wide net, engaging Native American customs and history, the forested mysteries of the American South, the habits of birds and one traveler's ruminations on the people, conflicts and stories of Ireland. This gathering of poems scanning two decades displays, as Eamon Grennan said of Smith's collection Trespasser, "a language at once taut and sensuous, speedy but carefully controlled."
About the Author: R.T. Smith was born in Washington, D.C., and has lived in Georgia, North Carolina, Alabama and Virginia.

In 1998 he was Artist-in-Residence at the National Historical Park at Harpers Ferry, WV. He has been a resident at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre, the Wurlitzer Foundation and the Millay Colony and has spent extensive time in Ireland, notably Galway.
