While We've Still Got Feetby David Y. Budbill
Synopses & Reviews
Familiar to listeners of National Public Radio, David Budbill is beloved by legions for straightforward poems dispatched from his hermitage on Judevine Mountain. Inspired by classical Chinese hermit poets, he follows tradition but cannot escape the complications and struggles of a modern solitary existence. Loneliness, aging and political outrage are addressed in poems that value honesty and simplicity and deplore pretension.
For more than three decades, David Budbill has lived on a remote mountain in northern Vermont writing poems, reading Chinese classics, tending to his garden and, of course, working on his website. Budbill has been featured more than any other author on Garrison Keillor’s The Writer’s Almanac.
Familiar to listeners of NPR, Budbill is a Chinese poet living as a mountain hermit in Vermont.
"Budbill is the perfect antidote for those who find contemporary poetry distanced and obscure."--American Libraries
