This volume reprints the nearly two hundred pieces from his earlier Collected Poems, together with the poems from his most recent collections: Entries, Given, and Leavings, to create an expanded compilation. It contains all the poems from previous collections Mr. Berry wishes to collect, except no selections have been made from his ongoing sequence published as The Sabbath Poems. Wendell Berry is the author of over fifty works of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction, and has been awarded numerous literary prizes, including the T.S. Eliot Award, a National Institute of Arts and Letters award for writing, the American Academy of Arts and Letters Jean Stein Award, and a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship. He began publishing work in the 1960s.
