In his fourth collection of poems, critically acclaimed Jay Parini transcends his earlier work to address the environmental and spiritual crises that afflict us in the late 20th century. The book moves from elegiac poems about the ontological status of nature itself to final meditations on many of the great themes of 19th-century visionary Ralph Waldo Emerson, even incorporating Emerson quotes within Parini's own verse.
