Book Overview

Merwin has attained a transcendent and transformative elevation of beaming perception, exquisite balance, and clarifying beauty.--Booklist, starred review

In his personal anonymity, his strict individuated manner, his defense of the earth, and his heartache at time's passing, Merwin has become instantly recognizable on the page.--Helen Vendler, The New York Review of Books

W.S. Merwin's legacy is unquestionably secure.--Poetry

Merwin is tackling the mysteries of life and impending death with a grace and dexterity of imagination that leaves one of any age wondering if this is more than simply poetry, but bordering on prophecy.--Eliot Schain, Poetry Flash

Two-time Pulitzer winner W.S. Merwin is one of the best-selling poets in America. In his new book, The Moon Before Morning, Merwin examines everything from minute flowers to oceanic destruction, and weaves our complex relationship with the natural world with his own youth, memory, and intense engagement with the passing of days. With considered reverence, subtle might, and generous poetic imagination, Merwin presents a masterful collection.
