Appalachia: PoemsAppalachia: Poems by Charles Wright
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Charles Wright is a spiritual poet who questions everything including his questions. He is a poet of nature who suspects that nature has a trick up her sleeve. Landscape and language interplay and he asks much of both, received much, but never enough.

In this collection, he reads from an imagined “Appalachian Book of the Dead” and takes us deep into wonder, and fear, and hope, and resignation, “Until there is nothing else” but silence.
