Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

My Wife's PaintingWoods. November's bare light has arrived. Where, sheltered by poplars, a low pond lies.
The sun abandons the sky, speaking through cold
leaves.
This Tang painting is called "The Six Philosophers."
Five Chinamen talk in the open-walled house,
Exchanging poems. Only one is outdoors, looking over
The cliff, being approached from below by rolling
mists.

3

A deer comes down the bare slope toward me,
Sees me, turns away, back up the hill
Into the lone trees.
It is a doe out in the cold and air alone.
It is the woman turned away from the philosopher's
house.

4

It's an old, long story. After Heraclitus dies,
The males sink down to a-pathy,
To not-suffering.
When you shout at them, they don't reply.
They turn their face toward the crib wall, and die.

5

My wife showed me yesterday her new
Painting. One bird of hers, a lively one,
Had come.
It was a large bird with big feet,
And stubby wings, arrows lightly stuck in the arms.

Synopsis:

A Brilliant Collection Spanning Half A Century, From One Of America's Most Prominent And Powerful Poets

Robert Bly has had many roles in his illustrious career. He is a chronicler and mentor of young poets, was a leader of the antiwar movement, founded the men's movement, and wrote the bestselling book Iron John, which brought the men's movement to the attention of the world. Throughout these activities, Bly has continued to deepen his own poetry, a vigorous voice in a period of more academic wordsmiths. Here he presents his favorite poems of the last decades-timeless classics from Silence in the Snowy Fields, The Man in the Black Coat Turns, and Loving a Woman in Two Worlds. A complete section of marelous new poems rounds out this collection, which offers a chance to reread, in a fresh setting, a lifetime of work dedicated to fresh perspectives. It is a brilliant collection that confirms Bly's role as one of America's preeminent poets writing today.

Robert Bly is the author of the groundbreaking New York Times bestseller Iron John, which launched the men's movement to national fame, as well as several collections of poetry and, most recently, The Sibling Society and The Maiden King (with Marion Woodman). He lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
