Selected Poems
Robert Bringhurst

This Selected Poems reaches across Robert Bringhurst's rich and varied œuvre, including both old works and new poems. As a poet, typographer, and lifelong student of Native American languages and oral literatures, Bringhurst balances the physical art of spoken language and the "salvageable wisdom" of pre-Colombian America that breathes fresh with every reading. A man who claims no title and no address, Bringhurst has shaped our world through his work in typography, linguistic anthropology, and—most quietly and profoundly—in poetry.

For Selected Poems, Robert Bringhurst

Reading Robert Bringhurst's poems is like breathing pure air.  His poetry is rare but never rarified ... He attempts to grasp the essence of what it is to be alive."-—The Observer (London)

"Bringhurst's work is work of sensation as much as of intellect, a sensation as deeply rooted in the actual ... His poetry leads back to the mythic landscapes and villages of pre-modern humanity, 'where the stones have not stopped breathing and the light is still alive.'"—The Times (London)

"Robert Bringhurst may well be the poet we have all been waiting for, one who can reclaim for poetry the dignity, wit, brilliance, and wisdom it has recently appeared to have mislaid. He is without doubt a major poet, not only in the context of Canadian letters, but in that of all writing of our time."—Poetry
