Lake Superior is a compilation of writings around Lorine Niedecker's poem of the same title—strata that inform the poem's ecological and historical resonance.

Lorine Niedecker was a major American poet often connected with the Objectivists. She lived in Wisconsin from 1903 to 1970.

From "Lake Superior Country":

Every bit of you is a bit of the earth . . .

So—here we go. Maybe as rocks and I pass each other I could say how-do-you-do to an agate.
