Item description for Silence in the Snowy Fields: Poems (Wesleyan poetry program) by Robert Bly...

Poems deal with such subjects as silence, sleep, moonlight, and snow

Publishers Description
The poems of Robert Bly are rooted deep in the earth. Snow and sunshine, barns and cornfields and cars on the empty nighttime roads, abandoned Minnesota lakes and the mood of America now--these are his materials. He sees and talks clearly: he uses no rhetoric nor mannered striving for effect, but instead the simple statement that in nine lines can embody a mood, reveal a profound truth, illuminate in an important way the inward and hidden life. This is a poet of the modern world, thoroughly aware of the complexities of the moment but equally mindful of the great stream of life--all life--of which mankind is only a part.

Reviews - What do customers think about Silence in the Snowy Fields: Poems (Wesleyan poetry program)?

One of the top five books in modern poetry  Dec 7, 2000
This first book by Robert Bly is definitely a classic. It is certainly one of the best books in modern poetry--a landmark! Along with James Wright's The Branch Will Not Break, this book defined a generation of poets in the late 50's that decided poetry had become too dull and scholarly. These poems are alive and rich in vivid imagination. You will fall in love with each poem and read and re-read this collection over and over again.
Bly captures the intricate love, hidden between the lines.  Dec 7, 1998
An intellectual with deep insight into human nature, and tremendous focus with the written word; this is one of Mr. Bly's most sublime collections of poetry. He has an uncanny ability to look deep into human existence and point with an awe-struck finger to the divine. His poignancy with the natural world rolls off the tounge and into deep into the mind touching a quieter place. The poems will leave you spellbound.
