Overview

This volume contains 57 poems demonstrating a wide range of form and subject. At times formal and at times experimental, Edson's poems explore love, politics and our connection to nature and to each other at many levels. Each poem is accessible and precise in bringing to life the beautiful synthesis of wisdom and mystery that are life's universal. This volume ends with Tears for Amy, a long poem of over 600 lines, written in 26 26-line stanzas of terza rima. Tears for Amy is both an elegy for a classmate and a meditation on the pursuit of higher levels of humanity by each individual and by society as a whole. This is a volume you will value and reread for its ability to speak to our contemporary struggle for heart, happiness, and harmony with the world.
