Description
"A sweeping poetic achievement, Swift represents David Baker's evolution as one of American poetry's most significant voices. Gathering poems from eight collections--including the widely acclaimed Changeable Thunder (2001) and his masterful latest, Scavenger Loop (2015)--and adding three suites of new poems, David Baker proves himself once again "the most expansive and moving poet to come out of the American Midwest since James Wright" (Marilyn Hacker). With equal curiosity and candor, he explores the many worlds we all inhabit--from our most intimate relationships to the wider social worlds of neighborhoods, villages, and our complex national identity, to the environmental community we all share. FROM "SWIFT" A voice in awe turns inward; as looking down into a canyon, the self grows small. The smaller swifts are larger for their singing"--,Provided by publisher.
