The Land Itself

ByJared Carter

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Stories and poems from the American Midwest – that vast inland world of lakes and prairies – figure significantly in the nation’s literature. Jared Carter’s poetry exemplifies this tradition. As the Introduction by BJ Omanson explains, “Carter is the laureate of loss and, beyond loss, absence. He has been witness to the emptying out of the rural Midwest for three quarters of a century. This is what the regionalist writer faces now in America: the swift passing away of what took three or four hundred years to build up slowly.” ~~~ Amid change, he finds what endures. He celebrates “what is left after nothing is left.” Such poetry, “in its fidelity both to the letter and the spirit of the land – assumes the very form and character of that region . . . and so becomes a true expression of the land itself.”
