Book Title: Selected Poems

Author: Galway Kinnell

Book Description:

I had long loved the ways a poem might transport the reader through story and image and rhythm and sound. But in a culture that often ignores the poetic arts, I struggled to find a poet whose work I could identify with. As a senior in college I stumbled across Galway Kinnell. His poem "The Bear" became the touchstone that enabled me to see ways I might learn to write my own poems.
