He has even given it an apt nomination, The Salvager’s Arts, which describes not only how to build an ark, but also how to build a poem. Woolfitt is a close observer of how others make their art and tend their land. This collection of poems is an exceedingly well-made thing, and contains a deep personal knowledge of the local and the natural, shared in a language as musical as the sparrow, whose lament we hear throughout these fine poems.Jesse Graves, author of Tennessee Landscape with Blighted PineCover image: Equisetum sylvaticum, by Anna Atkins & Anne Dixon.
