�To me, a poem begins in loneliness and ends in fellowship. It is an outstretched hand; an opportunity to connect with others through images and emotions. And if you make that connection with me, then the flame we are all a part of burns just a little brighter. That�s my goal: to share with you the burning.�

Overview

�To me, a poem begins in loneliness and ends in fellowship. It is an outstretched hand; an opportunity to connect with others through images and emotions. And if you make that connection with me, then the flame we are all a part of burns just a little brighter. That�s my goal: to share with you the burning.�
- Andrew Hubbard

Things That Get You is a philosophical approach to the essential questions of life. It dives into ideas of life and mortality and muses on the connections between humanity and nature.

Hubbard�s poetry explores the importance of love and family in this modern world. He discusses what it means to be a father, a husband, and a man.

Hubbard�s thoughtful approach and beautifully crafted verses paints a vivid landscape of the nature of life in mid-western America. Both rhythmic and free-flowing, this collection of poetry absorbs us into his world.

Hubbard helps us to contemplate what life truly means to us.

Editorial Reviews

Winkley Professor of Anglo-Saxon and English Language and Literature, Emeritus, Dartmouth College - Alan T. Gaylord
He is a close looker, and showers us with varied words that have the intense clarity of images ringing, full of life, like brain-minted coins. His musings imply a large and resonant space, a piece of American Wilderness, in which the Very Large enhances but does not overshadow the Very Small. But he sees, as he grins tentatively our way, that there are meanings in these words, puzzles that tease him and us.
