Selected by Indie Booksellers for the December 2009 Indie Notables
“The breath is what I keep coming back to in the poetry of Merwin; his pacing is impeccable. If you didn't get out of the city this summer, this is a perfect trip to take into the landscape. If you still can, take this with you; it will deepen your valleys and soften your light.”
-- Rebecca Armstrong, McNally Jackson Books, New York, NY


Winner of the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry.
