Staff Reviews


Berry's poetry has always spoken to me in profound ways, and this collection brings together some of his best work. These poems speak to our varied relationships to our world in an agricultural and religious sense, and, like all of his best work, ask us to slow down and see beauty in a world which often feels chaotic.

— Josh

Description


Wendell Berry's Sabbath Poems are filled with spiritual longing and political extremity, memorials and celebrations, elegies and lyrics, alongside the occasional rants of the Mad Farmer, pushed to the edge yet again by his compatriots and elected officials. With the publication of this new complete edition, it has become increasingly clear that the Sabbath Poems have become the very heart of Berry's work. And these magnificent poems, taken as a whole for the first time in This Day, have become one of the greatest contributions ever made to American poetry.
