Of all the essay themes I was drawn to Wright's tender and insightful musings on the work of William Carlos Williams and Robert Creeley. She is both direct, esoteric, and playful in her prose, and the fragmented format of the essays, drawn out across the book, creates an understanding in the reading of the interconnectedness of poetry and life.

Now go forth, bring your trees.

C.D. Wright has encapsulated the complete history of the beech within her short lifetime. We hardly know our back yards. Beeches dying like the world, around the globe. This trifold tribute will survive.

Wright was/is a remarkably observant poet, almost writing in the Imagist School style, but with quirkier word play. "The man next to the monument must have broken/ away from her. Perhaps years/ before. That the bond had been carnal is obvious./ He said he was just out clearing his head./ They followed the walk of pollarded pear trees. His tone/ distant but not disinterested..." And there is a lovely pull out poem (three pages, folded, to be read vertically) called "From the Obscure Lives of Poets" that reads like a contemporary Whitman elegiac catalog of poetic types. (Brian)… (mere)
