River Inside the River : Poems, Paperback / softback Book

River Inside the River : Poems Paperback / softback


From this acclaimed American poet come three gorgeous poetic sequences.

In the first, "Eden and After," Gregory Orr retells the story of Adam and Eve.

The second sequence, "The City of Poetry," evokes and explores a visionary metropolis where "every poem is a house, and every house a poem." The final sequence, "River Inside the River," focuses on redemption through the mysterious power of language to resurrect the beloved and recover what is lost.

River Inside the River combines Orr's characteristic spirituality and meditative lyricism with storytelling and myth-making.

These are poems that will sustain, console and give hope, from a poet at the height of his powers.
