Product Description

Poems Across The Big Sky II:
An Anthology of Montana Poets
Edited by Lowell Jaeger
Cover art by Rusti Warner

William Carlos Williams famously asserted, “It is difficult ⁄ to get the news from poems ⁄ yet men die miserably every day ⁄ for lack ⁄ of what is found there.”

These Montana poems share the news we need to hear at this moment in our history, our shared lives. Reading this vivid, engaging, important collection, you will be brought into contact with the physical world time and again in often surprising ways.

How do Montanans endure, even flourish in this outlandishly wild place? Many poems show the work of living here, whether at a fast-food restaurant or a ranch or the writing table (the root of “poetry” is making) — work as survival, work as a practice that reveals unexpected talents, work as a means of making sense of our brief but promising lives.

Love and humor also play their parts in dwelling in Montana, as evidenced by these poems. Consider the beauty of aging partners sharing their fully carnal love, or a young couple sharing their first kiss in a car, or the silliness and power of Coyote.

These poems provide the news we need to thrive in Montanan — they are necessary as water, stunning as sky.
Ken Egan, Executive Director of Humanities Montana
