 Bob Arnold. Sunswumthru A Building

 

 

In Bob Arnold's Sunswumthru A Building a poet shares his memories and well hewn meditations on the various tools he has used in handcrafting the life and maintaining the homestead he shares with his wife Susan. In a day when almost all poets are to be found in the halls of academe, this is a book of wilderness building with its close-to-the-earth perspective and a deep appreciation of those from whom he learned his own skills.

As companion volume to the author's popular earlier book, On Stone, a builder's notebook, it takes the reader as passenger in a work truck from the smallest jobs, to building sites, to the evolution of friendships. Within the poet's story of the building of a cottage with his homeschooled son Carson, Bob Arnold reflects on many learning experiences for both father and son.

Bob Arnold's background derives from five generations of a lumber business family settled in the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts and now dwellnig in Vermont. With on site illustrations by Scotland's Laurie Clark, the poet's prose cuts a trail into familiar woodlands. Come in for a visit.

Drawings by Laurie Clark.

Bob Arnold. Once In Vermont

 

 

 

 

Bob Arnold is the author of two dozen previous books. The present major collection Once in Vermont is meant as a sequel to his highly praised Where Rivers Meet. This collection collects many of the limited and small press poetry editions published from such presses as Bull Thistle, Cherry Valley Editions, Pentagram, Stingy Artist, tel-let, and White Pine. A sort of 'selected poems' by Bob Arnold from over two decades.

 "The poems of Bob Arnold are very simple, with many subtle pleasures barely concealed. In the gardens of poetry, Bob Arnold's allotment is not to be missed." -- Ian Hamilton Finlay

 

"Every word is love, loved, lovely. What else is poetry?" -- Cid Corman

 

"Bob Arnold builds stone walls. He also builds poems that will last for generations and as natural as stones working together. Edwin Muir once remarked that modern poetry is not read by "the people," because it no longer tells a story. "The people" should reconsider. In fact, I'm going to ask my local hardware store to make this book a permanent fixture at the front counter.

Once in Vermont is the enduring story of Arnold's life. The book moves from short meditations on family and environment, to longer, more narrative poems about country folk. Arnold then returns to his beginnings with a series of condensed meditations. By the time I finished the book, I felt I had visited with Arnold, his family, and his community. ..." (M. A. Roberts) Oyster Boy Review 13 (Summer 2001)


 

Bob Arnold. American Train Letters

 

 

Out of old words burnished into a new vocabulary, Bob Arnold's American Train Letters travels a network around the perimeter of the United States from New England to Washington to Florida to New Orleans to San Francisco to board the Zephyr back across the continent to Salt Lake City and Rugby, North Dakota ("the geographical center" not of the United States but "of North America"), to Minneapolis to Chicago to Albany and, instead of continuing down the Hudson, veering east towards Boston and home to Vermont. ~ Lyle Glazier.

"Like a fool I fell in love with my country."
