Everything here is both casual conversation and High Mass--which is the true magic of all the best poetry. This is the book you'll read out loud to whomever is within earshot, full of poems you'll memorize without trying. Hughes marries the comic with the sorrowful, and breaks our hearts while we laugh. Bunch of Animals is the collection you've been waiting for, the one that will revive your love of poetry, and one you won't forget.
A poetic bestiary of strange and wondrous creatures. With great agility and knowing, the poems in Bunch of Animals surprise their reader in the illusion-lands between animal bodies and the human body, between the lives and desires of American fauna and the loves and duties of the people, including the poet, who share the land and water. Writing in an erotic, witty, restrained style, Hughes offers an expansive vision of life's richness. Henry Hughes—what a rare creature, indeed! Like a fishermen casting into the unseen, the speaker of these spells carries us past the reflective surfaces of our days into realms of wonder, sorrow, humor, intrigue, and illumination.
