About the Author
Robert Pack was born in New York in 1929. He taught at Middlebury College and for more than twenty years he served as Director of the Breadloaf Writers' Conference. After retirement he taught in the University of Montana's Honors College. During his career Pack published twenty-one collections of poetry and three book-length studies of poets. He died in June, 2023.

As if anticipating our loss, Bob Pack gives us one final collection of poems that abound with humor, generosity, playfulness, and compassion for life itself in all its variety, perplexity, cruelty, and wonder.

-Julia Alvarez, author of Afterlife and In the Time of the Butterflies

Robert Pack was an earthy poet of the spirit, a man who has listened to the angels, taken down their dictation, grounded their words in physical realities. In his final collection, it's the sequence on Einstein that seems destined for eternity. In each of his poems, there is a special music, one that owes a great deal to the vast experience of poetic forms.

-Jay Parini, author of The Last Station

For fifty years I followed Bob Pack's extraordinary career as a poet, and once more I am deeply moved by this, his final book of poems. Einstein, Darwin, his dear Uncle Phil and his beloved Patty: it all reads like a Bach cantata, laced with humor and sadness and a deep philosophical wisdom.

-Paul Mariani, author of All That Will Be New

Whether bearing witness to the ever-shifting seasons around his Montana home or pondering the mysteries of evolution and relativity, Robert Pack is our poet of cosmic transformation.

-John Elder, author of Reading the Mountains of Home
