Overview

Chickamauga / Edition 1

In these six groups of poems, Charles Wright turns again and with still greater intensity to themes that have continued to propel his work: language's mysteries, landscape's numinosity, and the idea of God underlying them both. A collection of intense moments used as lenses through which to see the world beyond them, Chickamauga is a virtuoso exploration of the power of concision in lyric poetry and of the flexible music of the long line Wright has made his own.
