The Shape of the Journey

Jim Harrison

Here is the definitive collection of poetry from one of Americas best-loved writers-now available in paperback. With the publication of this book, eight volumes of poetry were brought back into print, including the early nature-based lyrics of Plain Song, the explosive Outlyer & Ghazals, and the startling correspondence with a dead Russian poet in Letters to Yesenin. Also included is an introduction by Harrison, several previously uncollected poems, and Geo-Bestiary, a 34-part paean to earthly passions. The Shape of the Journey confirms Jim Harrisons place among the most brilliant and essential poets writing today.

Behind the words one always feels the presence of a passionate, exuberant man who is at the same time possessed of a quick, subtle intelligence and a deeply questioning attitude toward life. Harrison writes so winningly that one is simply content to be in the presence of a writer this vital, this large-spirited.--The New York Times Book Review

(An) untrammelled renegade genius... heres a poet talking to you instead of around himself, while doing absolutely brilliant and outrageous things with language.-Publishers Weekly

Readers can wander the woods of this collection for a lifetime and still be amazed at what they find.-Booklist (starred review.)

When first published, this book immediately became one of Copper Canyon Presss all-time bestsellers. It was featured on Garrison Keillors Writers Almanac, became a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, and was selected as one of the Top-Ten Books of 1998 by Booklist.

Jim Harrison is the author of twenty books, including Legends of the Fall and The Road Home. He has also written numerous screenplays and served as the food columnist for Esquire magazine. He lives in Michigan and Arizona.

Dead Deer

Amid pale green milkweed, wild clover,
a rotted deer
curled, shaglike,
after a winter so cold
the trees split open.
I think she couldnt keep up with
the others (they had no place
to go) and her food,
frozen grass and twigs,
