The Book of Names: New and Selected Poems
Barton Sutter (Author)
Backorder (temporarily out of stock)
DescriptionWinner of the 1994 Minnesota Book Award for Poetry. Barton Sutter's poetry is earthy and muscular, chiseled from his native Midwestern landscape. Drawing from the narrative, formal tradition of Robert Frost and E. A. Robinson, Sutter's poems are full of the grist of rural life--old farms, old shops, wild mushrooms, beaver dams, roadside bars and eccentric, vital people.
