The living room repaint resulted in some joyful discoveries, some weeding-out, and a happy reunion with books I haven’t opened in a long time. This is my poetry shelf. It’s far from complete, but you can see Mary Oliver (lots and lots), Jane Kenyon, Jena Strong, Naomi Shihab Nye, Stanley Kunitz, Sharon Olds, Erica Jong, ee cummings, Ranier Maria Rilke, Maxine Kumin, Adrienne Rich, Anne Sexton, and Wallace Stevens. Curiously, Wendell Berry is missing; I need to find out where his books ended up. You can also see my much-loved and heavily-annotated Norton anthologies from college. I think this is my favorite shelf.
