Reviews

Praise for Collected Poems

[Berry's poems] shine with a gentle wisdom of a craftsman who has thought deeply about the paradoxical strangeness and wonder of life. --The Christian Science Monitor

Wendell Berry is one of those rare individuals who speaks to us always of responsibility, of the individual cultivation of an active and aware participation in the arts of life, be they those of composing a poem, preparing a hill for planting, raising a family, working for the good of oneself and one's neighbors, loving. --The Bloomsbury Review

Praise for Entries

If you're wondering where all the sincerity has gone in contemporary poetry, you may rest assured that Wendell Berry has it. --Bookpress

Disarming in its apparent simplicity and powerful in its lack of guile.--San Marcos Daily Record

Praise for Given

For those who believe that life and the world are gifts, this is an invaluable book. --Booklist

Praise for Leavings

[Berry's] sage mind and poetic skills combine to skewer political arrogance, savage commercial folly, muse on growing old and lament a good dog's death. Mindful of time and earth, of joy and love, Berry calls us to the hard work of a hope and peace and gratitude so incarnate that they rest 'on the ground underfoot.' --Christian Century
