After the Others

Poems
Bruce Weigl
Winner of the 2006 Lannan Foundation Award for Poetry


In his twelfth volume of poetry, Bruce Weigl continues his quest for emotional and spiritual enlightenment. Quiet and moving, these poems combine an intimate voice with a searingly direct look at suffering and senseless violence, at human desire and love, and at man's relationship with nature.
