Synopsis
The Language of Spring collects some thirty of the most evocative English-language poems on the experience of spring. The poems range from the traditional and formal (Gerard Manley Hopkins"s "Spring" and Edna St. Vincent Millay"s "English Sparrows") to the contemporary, experimental, and diverse (Henry Reed"s "Naming of Parts," Marie Ponsot"s "Mauve," and William Carlos Williams"s "The Widow"s Lament in Springtime"). Each poem beautifully illuminates another small spot of time in the enthralling season of renewal. Other contributors include: Maxine Kumin (the volume"s title is adapted from her poem), Robert Frost, Emily Dickinson, Mary Oliver, Richard Wright, John Updike, Walt Whitman, Yusef Komunyakaa, e. e. cummings, D. H. Lawrence, Claude McKay, Jane Kenyon, Sara Teasdale, Philip Larkin, Anne Sexton, James Tate, and A. R. Ammons.

The entire world is reborn in spring. Starting in March, when the snow still drips from the branches of trees, and exploding into June, when a palpable vitality ignites the air, spring reminds us perhaps more than any other season that life is cyclical. In spring "trees leap up alive," "buds relax and spread," and the world, according to e. e. cummings, is "puddle-wonderful." Flowers, cherry blossoms, city sparrows -- and, of course, new love -- all play a role in this enticing season of renewal. The Language of Spring brings together forty poems that celebrate the season in all its guises: ecstatic, contemplative, deceptive, seductive, poignant. Delicately illustrated throughout by famed mid-twentieth-century woodcutter Fritz Kredel, this volume ranges from the classic tributes of William Shakespeare, Emily Dickinson, and Gerard Manley Hopkins to such contemporary visions as Jane Kenyon's "Spring Changes" and Yusef Komunyakaa's "April's Anarchy." In poems of uncompromising beauty, wit, and imagination, all the contributor's behold this enigmatic season through the lens of rebirth and renewal. Philip Larkin shrewdly notices the trick that budding trees play on us by looking new every year even though in their unseen rings they age as we do; Sara Teasdale reflects on how war destroys and nature continues despite the stubbornness of humankind; Richard Wright basks in a steady spring breeze; and Henry Reed famously reassembles a military rifle that may just turn out to be a spring garden.
