Overview

A Map of Faring holds three major poetical sequences meditating on particular places: an English wood, a Transylvanian valley, and a house in southern France, as well as poems of places in Austria, Germany, The Czech Republic, Italy, Spain and elsewhere. In these, landscape and encounters become the vocabulary of a personal exploration of senses of time and passage, and the fate of small localities in the spread of global forces. A Map of Faring reckons with acts large and small, that are transforming the world, even as it searches to understand, within that reckoning, the possible regenerative presence of art.
