Stealing Sugar from the Castle PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Stealing Sugar from the Castle free pdf Selected from throughout Robert Bly's monumental body of work from 1950 through the present, Stealing Sugar from the Castle represents the culmination of an astonishing career in American letters. Bly has long been the voice of transcendentalism and meditative mysticism for his generation. Influenced by Emerson and Thoreau, inspired by spiritual traditions from Sufism to Gnosticism, his vision is "oracular" (Antioch Review). From the rich, earthy simplicity of Silence in the Snowy Fields (1962) to the wild yet intricately formal ghazals of My Sentence Was a Thousand Years of Joy (2005) and the striking richness and authority of Talking into the Ear of a Donkey (2011), Bly's poetry is spiritual yet worldly, celebrating the uncanny beauty of the everyday. "I am happy, / The moon rising above the turkey sheds. // The small world of the car / Plunges through the deep fields of the night," he writes in "Driving Toward the Lac Qui Parle River." Here is a poet moved by the mysteries of the world around him, speaking the language of images in a voice brilliant and bold.
