Pp (6),7-172,(4). 8vo, illustrated black card covers, lettered in orange, yellow and white. "In this, his first book of prose, distinguished Canadian poet Brian Bartlett offers a daily diary from spring to spring. In the tradoition of John Clare's notebooks and letters, Henry David Thoreau's journals, and Annie Dillard's Pilgfrim at Tinker Creek, Bartlett looks out at his surroundings with a poet's eye for detail, his ear attuned to the ringings of the natural world. Grounded in Nova Scotia, but reflecting travels further afield to Alberta, Nebraska, New York City and Ireland, the entries take on the qualities of field reports, sketches, commentaries, tributes and laments, quotations and collages. Over 366 daily entries, Bartlett shows that the resonance between human life and natrure is there, waiting to be heard." (from the back cover). Very good. 12.50
