Looking for Native Ground : Contemporary Appalachian Poetry, Paperback / softback Book

Looking for Native Ground : Contemporary Appalachian Poetry Paperback / softback


Fred Chappell, Jeff Daniel Marion, Jim Wayne Miller, and Robert Morgan are primarily folk artists who write poetry about people doing common, everyday tasks.

Each poet in his own unique style illustrates a strong sense of place and community.

All natives to the Appalachian region, these poets come from an agrarian community that they had to leave behind to enter the world of academia.

Looking For Native Ground was published in 1989 comparing Chappell, Marion, Miller, and Morgan because of their place at the forefront of the regional literary movement in the 1980s.
