Description - Fossil Sky by David Hinton

An epic poem in the form of a lyrical map, Fossil Sky is a remarkable creation of originality and beauty. Composed on a single large sheet, it liberates poetry from the conventions of page and book. Fossil Sky distills a year of walks taken near the poet's home, tracing the paths a mind takes through landscape, history, and ideation. The poem's formal daring is combined with an inviting and direct personal voice, an inner voice adrift-broken up by landscape, space, time and silence.

David Hinton's many translations of ancient Chinese poetry have earned wide acclaim for creating compelling contemporary poetry. He has been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship, as well as numerous fellowships from the NEA and the NEH.
