Publisher Comments:

Throughout his life (1905-2006) Stanley Kunitz created poetry and tended gardens. This book is the distillation of conversations, none previously published, that took place between 2002 and 2004. Beginning with the garden, that "work of the imagination," the explorations journey through personal recollections, the creative process, and the harmony of the life cycle. A bouquet of poems and a total of 26 full-color photographs accompany the various sections. received a 2006 American Horticultural Society Book Award. "A miracle."--Galway Kinnell "No one who has ever gardened passionately will be a stranger to the sentiments Kunitz expresses about this act of domestic creation, but very few of us will ever come close to writing about it with his grace and clarity. This is indeed a book to cherish."--Kate Tyndall,

Synopsis:

"A graceful and moving glimpse into a rare and giving artist's refined poetics, garden aesthetics, and spirituality."--

Having this book on hand is like having permanent access to a wise grandfather. The poems are about love, loss, and death. The prose is about art and inspiration and trusting ourselves as a source of understanding.
I'm not a gardener, but the pictures are beautiful and the connections between gardening and art enlightening.
