**Winner of the John Burroughs Medal for Lifetime Achievement in Nature Poetry

Denise Levertov has called acclaimed poet Pattiann Rogers "a visionary of reality, perceiving the material world with such intensity of response that impulse, intention, meaning, interconnections beyond the skin of appearance are revealed." In her new collection, Rogers takes the reader on an exploration of human endeavor. Full of color and action, wonder and fear, these poems investigate, reflect upon, and create experiences relative to music, art, and theater, as well as to the universe and its creatures, large and small. They are distinguished by the penetrating vision and avid imagination that have made Rogers one of today's most outstanding poets.

Pattiann Rogers contin...

Pattiann Rogers continues to be one of the best poets writing today, although her reputation may not be as widespread as some. In this 2008 collection, Rogers once again interweaves science, nature, the very personal, the psychological, and the philosophic in a lovely and sometimes whimsical tapestry. While there is whimsy in how she weaves, every word is seriously meant and seriously placed. The opening poem, "The Great Deluge and Its Coming" describes a torrent of water and creatures to reveal the unity of all being and the fragility of all living creatures in the face of "the ultimate stillness of the dependable void." The collection is organized as if each section were a visit to a Concert Hall or a Museum or a natural habitat. If you love poetry and/or if you love life, spend some time with "Wayfare." Pattiann Rogers is a great companion.
