Morning Poems

by Robert Bly

Morning Poems is a sensational collection - Robert Bly's best in many years. Inspired by the example of William Staffors, Bly decided to embark on the project of writing a daily poem: every morning he would stay in bed until he had completed the day's work. These 'little adventures/In morning longing,' address classic poetic subjects (childhood, the seasons, death, and heaven) in a way that capitalizes fully on the pun in the books title.

These are morning poems, full of delight and mystery of waking in a new day, and they also do their share of mourning, elegizing the deceased and capturing the moment of sorrow before creation. David Lehman

There is a lot of humanknowledge in this book, and at the same time it has the vigour of youth. How can that be? Galway Kinnell

In Morning Poems we witness a master bringing a lifetime's resources to bear on the present moment and everything it contains. Thomas R. Smith

Robert Bly has been a major force in American poetry for more than four decades. Active as a social critic since the Vietnam War, more recently Robert Bly has gained world-wide recognition through his book Iron John and his work with gatherings of men. He is a force towards greater expressiveness in men and women. Helives in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
