Long Home, The
Christian Wiman

Before Christian Wiman became editor of Poetry, his debut volume earned the Nicholas Roerich Poetry Prize and garnered widespread praise. Reissued to coincide with the publication of Ambition and Survival: Becoming a Poet, this stunning collection confirms Wiman's status as one of the most remarkable poets of his generation.

For Long Home, The, Christian Wiman

"So substantive and wise that that it hardly seems like a first book."—San Jose Mercury News

"Joseph Campbell once said that what we really seek is not the meaning of life but the feeling of being alive, the experience of the living moment. In page after page of The Long Home Wiman renders such moments."—The Sewanee Review

"A poet we will reckon with over time."—Kirkus Review

"No one collection commits a poet unalterably to a style or a set of preoccupations, but The Long Home already establishes Christian Wiman as a legitimate heir to Frost."—Ploughshares

"An extraordinary first book...Characterized by acute psychological insight, fluency in form and narrative structure, unusual intelligence and heart. This book is also heartbreaking, in a way that Marilynne Robinson's Housekeeping is heartbreaking, or many poems of Randall Jarrell."—Prairie Schooner

"A beautiful first collection."—The Stranger
