An inexpensive selection of Frost's poems, this volume is particularly noteworthy for its insightful introduction by Louis Untermeyer as well as his commentaries on individual poems. From the introduction: "Frost has been no less an ordinary man for being an extraordinary creator. . . . The creator, the artist, the extraordinary man, is merely the ordinary man intensified; a person whose life is sometimes lifted to a high pitch of feeling and who has the gift of making others share his excitement. ~ Reviewed by Bob Gray

In his introduction to this bilingual collection, Galway Kinnell writes that for decades he had felt an impulse to translate Rilke's poetry. It was only when he was put in touch with Hannah Liebman, a native-speaker of German, fluent in English, and a lover of Rilke's poetry, that Kinnell believed he could "carry out this long-lurking ambition." This "quintessential" selection of Rilke's work includes the Duino Elegies as well as many shorter poems. An important addition to the Rilke ouevre. Kinnell's introduction is insightful for fans of the poet and newcomers alike. ~ Reviewed by Bob Gray

For anyone curious about the fate of those mythological "real Vermonters" you keep hearing about, this book is like a Vermont Travel Guide to the voices and even the souls of the ordinary and thus extraordinary people who live just off the beaten path, just down that road a piece, just slightly out of step with the world at large. ~ Reviewed by Bob Gray

Moment to Moment: Poems of a Mountain Recluse Cover Image

Availability: Special Order
Published: Copper Canyon Press - September 1st, 1999

In Vermont poet David Budbill's new collection, Moment to Moment: Poems of a Mountain Recluse, there are echoes of the irascible Cold Mountain poet Han Shan. Although Budbill's poetry is also influenced by Taoist texts and other ancient Chinese poets, the voice that emerges from these pages is uniquely his own in its solitary, intelligent, wry, and even caustic observations of the world as he sees it from his mountain. "Try not/to look like you're/on the path to somewhere/that way/nobody will ask you/where you are going." ~ Reviewed by Bob Gray

Published: Mariner Books - April 14th, 1999

In poems that chronicle the deepest ache of a mourning soul, Hall writes of his wife's death. Within this tragic story, however, he also celebrates her extraordinary life. A heart-wrenching read, but one that offers innumerable rewards. Read it in tandem with Jane Kenyon's "Otherwise." ~ Reviewed by Bob Gray
