Beautiful Country PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Beautiful Country free pdf A powerful new collection from an award-winning poet.
At the heart of Robert Wrigley's new book are the fears that find us at the darkest times and the hopes we rise to each morning. These poems explore that point where the sacred and the profane come together, that place of beauty inside the grotesque and the grotesque inside what is beautiful. The laws of nature, the commandments of capitalism, and the rules of war are transformed into songs of longing, patriotism, and dissent- we are also reminded of the grace residing in the glimpse of a horse under a full moon or the preserved lock of a lover's hair. Elegiac and lyrical, playful and angry, "Beautiful Country" offers a vision of a country that is unflinching, demanding, and generous.
