Bluets and Autobiography of Red

What is the color of loss? Nelson might answer blue, Carson might answer red, but in forming their answers both writers have produced totally unique, totally brilliant works of art. Through personal meditation and the lens of classical Greek literature both authors’ explorations illuminate far more of human experience than just the moments and thoughts subject to their inspection. Two works of genius.

This debut book of poetry and art is a beautiful miasma; an atmosphere, an idea, and a lexicon that envelopes you. Dark without being morbid, its words and images creep into your consciousness and settle into a pensive, persistent, and brilliant whisper. A fantastic debut from a wonderfully talented poet and artist.

Stealing Sugar From The Castle is a comprehensive selection of Robert Bly’s vast body of work from 1950 to the present.  His poetry preserves the “wilderness that is both within and without” to reintegrate “poetry with life – daily life, the life of the body, spiritual and political life”.  He has been of a driving force in American poetry for over sixty years.
