9780819510150: Silence in the Snowy Fields: Poems (Wesleyan Poetry Series)

The poems of Robert Bly are rooted deep in the earth. Snow and sunshine, barns and cornfields and cars on the empty nighttime roads, abandoned Minnesota lakes and the mood of America now—these are his materials. He sees and talks clearly: he uses no rhetoric nor mannered striving for effect, but instead the simple statement that in nine lines can embody a mood, reveal a profound truth, illuminate in an important way the inward and hidden life. This is a poet of the modern world, thoroughly aware of the complexities of the moment but equally mindful of the great stream of life—all life—of which mankind is only a part.

From the Back Cover:

'Robert Bly writes of silence, sleep, moonlight and snow in Minnesota....It is lively and beautiful. For what interests Bly in silence is the articulate quality of it, its creative noise.'--John Logan, The Critic
