Review Text

Most of these poems by a "countryman, a husband and father" who is also a poet, novelist and teacher at the University of Kentucky deal with man's violence to nature. A Southerner, he writes of a gentler world than that of the New England poets, and his approach tends to ramble, observe and accept the natural world with affection rather than explore its paradoxes. Except for an occasional indictment of war and civilization, the poems are easily paced descriptions of what he sees and remembers from the window of his cabin, encapsulating his major themes. Unassuming and rather unimportant. (Kirkus Reviews)
