Stone Works

Catalog Number: 
b.3.1
Date: 
2002
Volume: 
1st ed
Abstract: 
<p>Few will argue that writing and reading poetry help people discover beauty and truth in the world. These poems show how people create that meaning, organize their lives, and protect themselves from chaos &ndash; how they create a truth that brings safety and beauty to their experience, and how, when they fail to forge the link to Nature, the emptiness and the pain are palpable.<br /></p><p>The first section of the book deals with the process by which meaning is created and assigned to or imposed on events and things.<br /><br />The second part shows how well such an approach can work.<br /><br />The third paints the bleaker view when people lose their link with Nature, when they cannot link with each other.</p>
