Overview

For nearly five decades, readers have been enchanted by Peter Everwine's calmly dazzling poems. He's never been a writer clearly aligned with any single school or style, yet adherents of all schools and styles admire his graceful turns of phrase and intense vision. From the Meadow features a group of new works, along with selections from four previous collections. The poems, which include Everwine's deft translations from Hebrew and interpretations from Nahuatl, vibrate with the intensity of small truths distilled to their very essences.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“His poems are timeless, lyrical songs that transcent the dark forces of our society and call for a deeper understanding of our values. Becoming familiar again with old poems by a gifted master is like reliving the days when poetry truly came from the heart to ravish and define who we are.”
Bloomsbury Review
Library Journal
A mixed bag of old and new, this volume by the author of the award-winning Collecting the Animals features calm but exhilarating poetry that attests to the beauty around us. These exquisite poems are so well paced that nothing ever seems forced or misplaced ("Once more I find myself/ standing on a dark pier, holding/ an enormous rope of silence").
