This is the collected poetic works of Jim Harrison. Many of the poems are told from Harrison's viewpoint, chronicling his life to present. This includes his blinding in one eye as a child, which transformed him. Harrison splits his time between the beloved Michigan woods of his childhood and his winter retreat in Arizona which inform and infuse his poetry and prose-poems. Lots of food throughout. He has never met a meal he doesn't like -- he's game for anything and will eat any game.
Most notable is the collection of ghazals, an antique form into which he breathes vibrant life.
