Compulsions of Silk Worms and Bees Synopsis

Part primer, part credo, part arm-swinging gambol, this wonderful book is resonant with wit and insight.""-- Linda Bierds Compulsions of Silkworms and Bees takes up the tradition of Rilke's Letters to a Young Poet, but on poetry's own terms. At first glance, Baggott's candid counsel can be seen as a manual on writing poetry, written in poems. As the book unfolds, however, these poems take on the larger landscape of love and loss, the rigors of living fully, and the intricate, mysterious territory of our fragile, hardworking souls.
