Description

A new collection of poems and the companion volume to the popular bestseller This Day, Wendell Berry's Another Day is another stunning contribution to the poetry canon from one of America's most beloved writers

A companion to his beloved volume This Day and Wendell Berry's first new poetry collection since 2016, this new selection of Sabbath Poems are filled with spiritual longing and political extremity, memorials and celebrations, elegies and lyrics, alongside the occasional rants of the Mad Farmer, pushed to the edge yet again by his compatriots and elected officials.

With the publication of this new edition, it has become increasingly clear that the Sabbath Poems have become the very heart of Berry’s work.
