Book of Names (90 Edition)by Sutter
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Winner of the 1994 Minnesota Book Award for Poetry. Barton Sutter's poetry is earthy and muscular, chiseled from his native Midwestern landscape. Drawing from the narrative, formal tradition of Robert Frost and E. A. Robinson, Sutter's poems are full of the grist of rural life--old farms, old shops, wild mushrooms, beaver dams, roadside bars and eccentric, vital people.
