To Love That Well: New & Selected, 1954 – 2013

by Robert Pack

One of America’s most revered nature poets, Robert Pack has won the acclaim of critics throughout his long career. This collection—To Love That Well: New and Selected Poems, 1954 – 2013—reprises many of his best known poems, both lyric and narrative, comic and meditative. The poems dramatize and reflect upon Pack’s sense of mortality and loss, his cherishing of friends, family, and the natural world, and the power of poetic art to celebrate the pleasures that open to our senses and our imaginings.

TRIAGE

by Renée Rossi

“Triage is a haunted and compelling collection, a superb debut.”

—David Wojahn, author of Interrogation Palace: New & Selected Poems 1982–2004

Understory

by Paulann Petersen

As with a forest’s understory—the level of vegetation growing under its canopy—these poems bear the shadows of a darker realm. Informed by myth and archetype, Paulann Petersen’s work grows close to the earth, frequently delving into the chthonic. Occasioned by a wide geography and characterized by a large embrace, Petersen’s writing celebrates both the singular and the quotidian, both the sidereal and the earth-bound.

Walking Distance

by Michael Heffernan

Michael Heffernan has sustained and amplified a poetry of real intelligence, technical precision, and acoustic splendor. He is sure-footed in his craft enough to let imagination run and leap and dance.

—Thomas Lynch, on The Back Road to Arcadia

WATCH OUT: Selected Poems of Kuno Raeber

by Translated from the German by Stuart Friebert

These translations of a wide range of the poems of the Swiss poet, Kuno Raeber (1922-1992), come from a life of many interests in matters theological, philosophical, and cultural—he was a lecturer in history at German universities. The poems’ settings are often timeless in nature; their subjects and objects, as Christiana Wyrwa writes in the comprehensive introduction, often “move from real situations into magical surroundings,” and readers are advised not to look “for rationally understandable connections” as they make their way through real land- and seascapes to interiors where the world is powered by uncertainty but on the cusp of righting itself again. The translator, Stuart Friebert, produces, as closely as possible, Raeber’s lineations and rhythmic patterns, right down to individual word choices.

WHAT DOES NOT RETURN

by Tami Haaland

“Tami Haaland’s exquisite and necessary book of poems, What Does Not Return, is a rare account of the experience we have come to call, rightly, care-giving. . . .”

What It Done to Us

by Essy Stone

Winner of the Idaho Prize for Poetry 2016 | Selected by Gary Copeland Lilley

“Stone has created a southern gothic for today . . . a testament, a collection that could be the mythology that we find at the intersection of flesh and spirit, or maybe it’s the reveal to a hard-times question like, ‘Why does the Devil get here faster than God every time?’”

What Next, Old Knife?

by David Axelrod

Ranging across a diverse contemporary society of night school courses and displaced “adult learners,” concrete apartment blocks full of exiles and poor economic migrants, to the Iraq War, Germany of the 1930s, Vilna of the 1920s, and medieval Girona, What Next, Old Knife? is a sobering encounter with class, culture, and history—personal and otherwise. Throughout this new collection of poems, David Axelrod struggles with how we learn and unlearn our humanity, imagining the ways in which individuals and whole societies live with and recover from moral catastrophe. The collection ends with a long choral poem, a visionary dialogue between the living and the dead who insist that language can resist nihilism, reclaim hope, and enact future accord.
