Carrying Water to the Field : New and Selected Poems
by Joyce Sutphen and Ted Kooser




Overview -
Joyce Sutphen's evocations of life on a small farm, coming of age in the late 1960s, and traveling and searching for balance in a very modern world are both deeply personal and familiar. Readers from Maine to Minnesota and beyond will recognize themselves, their parents, aunts and uncles, and neighbors in these poems, which move us from delight in keen description toward something like wisdom or solace in the things of this world.

In addition to poems selected from the last twenty-five years, Carrying Water to the Field includes more than forty new poems on the themes of luck, hard work, and the ravages of time--erasures that Sutphen attempts to ameliorate with her careful attention to language and lyrical precision.
