Ocean Effects by Brendan Galvin

Book Description

Sharply observed and metaphorically inventive, Ocean Effects is a worthy follow-up to Galvin's National Book Award finalist Habitat. It includes a new vein of Galvin's trademark richly observed lyric poems on the biota, landscapes, and weathers of coastal New England. Seascapes and the natural world bracket sequences spoken by personae as various as the seventeenth-century American colonist Roger Williams, small-town cops, a squatter in the ruins of Chernobyl, a nineteenth-century Russian general in Mongolia, and a Cape Cod carpenter. Galvin's monologues, tensile and energetic free verse, are touched with the speech of the historical periods in which they take place.

Whirl Is King by Brendan Galvin Whirl Is King, Paperback / softback (September 2008)

Ranging in tone from the elegaic to the comic, Whirl Is King collects 43 of Brendan Galvin's poems about human encounters with birds. Written over the past five decades, these poems contain Galvin's hallmark descriptive powers and verbal music, and demonstrate why he is regarded as one of the finest contemporary poet naturalists.

Habitat by Brendan Galvin Habitat, Paperback (April 2005)

Habitat, Brendan Galvin's fourteenth poetry book, combines eighteen new works with lyric pieces from the past forty years - including two book-length narratives. Galvin intimately conveys his landscapes, birds, animals, people and weather and by elevating the commonplace to the crucial, he takes his readers far from the familiar.
