"The most expansive and moving poet to come out of the American Midwest since James Wright."--Marilyn Hacker "Midwest Eclogue" is a profound dialogue between the heartland and the heart. David Baker's devotions are erotic and familial, natural and environmental, literary and social. Inspired by the landscape of the Midwest, Baker's landscape of human passions--haunted by roots and wings--is rendered in a rich and polyphonic craft.
