I discovered David Budbill when I read an article that he had written for the Utne Reader which discussed the value of the hermit as political activist. Budbill lives a reclusive life on "Judevine Mountain" in Vermont. I was drawn to this article because I myself had recently decided to flee city life and head for Vermont. His incredibly well-crafted, intelligent, and wry article totally convinced me that I was headed in the right direction. I read his poetry later when I heard he was coming to read at the bookstore. Budbill's wise, witty poems reverberate with the power of ancient Chinese poets, yet this ancient wisdom is turned pointedly and uniquely at human nature and modern culture. One can't help chuckling and feeling refreshed when reading his poetry.
