Rounding the Human Corners

Poems by Linda Hogan
Introduction by William Kittredge

“Light. Love. Life. Linda Hogan’s gentle and clear poetry in Rounding the Human Corners reminds me that, too often, I long and ask for more than I need. In fact when I read the final poem in the book, I go back and read her poems from the beginning, so I can marvel again at the knowledge made obvious to me.” —Simon J. Ortiz

Description

In her first book of poetry since 1993’s groundbreaking The Book of Medicines, Linda Hogan locates the intimate connections between all living things. With soaring imagery, clear lyrics, and entrancing rhythm, her poetry becomes a visionary instrument singing to and for humanity. From the microscopic creatures of the sea to the powerful beauty of horses, and from the beating heart of her unborn grandson to the vast, uncovered expanses of the universe, Hogan reminds us that, “Between the human and all the rest / lies only an eyelid.”
