Beautiful Edition of Roethke's work Jan 4, 2007
I replaced an earlier collection of Roethke with this one. I like the binding and it will last until my children's children. I have been passionate about his work (went to the Univ of WA to be near him) since the very early sixties, and re-reading today find the poems stronger still, seeing them in a light that resonates with the earthiness that I feel calls to all of us. He used raw, earthen, everyday experience as metaphor for life emotions. Great book, nice collector's edition.
