Description

Robert Bly has had many roles in his illustrious career. He is a chronicler and mentor of young poets, many of whom he presented in his series of edited booksThe Fifties, The Sixties, and The Seventies. He was a leader of the antiwar movement, founded the mens movement virtually by himself, and published the bestseller Iron John. All through these activities, he has continued to deepen his own poetry, a vigorous voice in a period of more academic wordsmiths. Now, in Eating the Honey of Words, he presents the best poems he has written in the last ten years, as well as some favorites from his earlier books such as Silence in the Snowy Fields, The Man in the Black Coat Turns, and Loving a Woman in Two Worlds. Joining these timeless classics are marvelous new poems from the last two years.

This book is a chance to reread, in a fresh setting, many of Blys most famous early poems, and in some instances to see how the old poems have changed over the years. In this new selection, which includes a number of poems from past decades never published before, one can see more clearly than ever the powerful undercurrents that carry this poetry from one book on to the next.

It is a brilliant collection that confirms Robert Bly's role as one of Americas preeminent poets writing today.
