A Poet with a Scientist’s Eye and a Naturalist’s Heart

Splitting and BindingSplitting and Binding by Pattiann Rogers
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Pattiann Rogers is that rare poet who writes with the lyrical love of nature that Wordsworth had but without any false sentimentality. Instead, she brings the eye of the scientist together with the heart of the naturalist. She is unafraid to face the harsh reality of life and death in her own existence or in the natural or human world around her. This mid-career collection shows Rogers at her best.
