Poetry. Christian Wiman is perhaps best known as the editor of Poetry, but THE LONG HOME won the Nicholas Roerich Poetry Price and is responsible for putting Wiman on the literary map. Reissued to coincide with the publication of AMBITION AND SURVIVAL: BECOMING A POET, this stunning collection confirms Wiman's status as one of the most remarkable poets of his generation. "Joseph Campbell once said that what we seek is not the meaning of life but the feeling of being alive, the experience of the living moment. In page after page of THE LONG HOME, Wiman renders such moments"--The Sewanee Review.
