Night Mowing (Pitt Poetry) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The poems in Night Mowing find their influence in the natural and the erotic; the biblical and the classical; the aesthetic and the spiritual. The landscape exists as both an ecstatic source of inspiration and as an endangered garden, and the narrator of these poems moves through that landscape in admiration and anguish: trying to preserve his joyful innocence while fully aware of the transience of all that he sees. Each poem in its specifics, whether focusing on a lover, a mountain, a dog, or a critic, wrestles with the universal and sacred, revealing the instinct of the poems to move toward purity and deep feeling even in dark times.

Review:

"Here is a poet with a truly extraordinary verbal imagination. His poems begin in the commonplace and rise — or soar, leap, swell — to the climactic surreal in a few lines." Hayden Carruth

Review:

"Chard deNiord sees daily life in terms of eternity and interprets it in a modern rendition of the language of the Biblical psalmist....The result is terrific poetry." Andrew Hudgins
