Description


"We are given this world and some time with friends. How time dawned on mind and was beaded into language amazes me the way an orb-spider's web or a computer-chip does. . . ."

Carter Revard, Osage Indian poet, Rhodes scholar, and professor of medieval English literature, shares both this amazement and his amazing command of language in this first retrospective collection of 40 published and unpublished pieces written from 1970 to 1991.

About the Author


Carter Revard is the author of three collections of poetry and a professor emeritus of English at Washington University, he lives in St. Louis.

Praise For…


"The voice of the narrator is an interior transformation, a wise manner at the intersections of oral traditions. . . . A splendid giveaway of both visions and common sense." —World Literature Today

"A collection that does what finely tuned poetry does best—putting human feeling and observation into focus and into print . . . A refreshingly unique perspective in the spirit of a rich oral tradition." —St Louis Post-Dispatch

"Like the trickster figure he admires, Revard assumes many forms and speaks in many accents." —Library Journal
