The poems in this volume have been newly selected by Galway Kinnell
from his eight collections published between 1960 and 1994: What a
Kingdom It Was; Flower Herding on Mount Monadnock; Body Rags; The
Book of Nightmares; Mortal Acts, Mortal Words; The Past; When One
Has Lived a Long Time Alone; and Imperfect Thirst. Occasional
revisions are addressed by Kinnell in a prefatory note. The life of
this American poet is glimpsed over the years -- his childhood in
New England, the early death of his brother, an exuberant youth in
New York City, a wife and children, aloneness and new love. The
natural world serves as backdrop to this life's journey, informing
the philosophical and political poems as well as the personal works
gathered in A New Selected Poems.
