from Sam of the Ten Thousand Things

Five poetry collections you may not have read but certainly must:

Galway Kinnell / The Book of Nightmares
Robert Penn Warren / Audubon: A Vision
Evan S. Connell / Notes From A Bottle Found On The Beach At Carmel
Robert Wrigley / Lives of the Animals
Larry Levis / The Widening Spell of the Leaves

The collections, for whatever reason, should be a bit off the beaten path. And need not have caused the earth to open and swallow you whole.

A great, great list. Especially the Levis. Wonderful. Me like your poetic ways.
