ABOUT THIS BOOK
The Other Journey: Poems New and Selected was first published in 1959. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions.The title poem of Katherine Garrison Chapin’s collection conveys the quality of this volume of lyrics which have appeared in magazines in the last fifteen years, and a selection from her three earlier books now out of print. The Other Journey suggests the duality of experience – an outward journey in space and inward journey of the mind. Included is a brief essay on the poetic image, and there are three translations, poems by Paul Claudel, Gabriela Mistral, and Rafael Alberti.Some of these poems have appeared in Harpers, New Republic, Nation, Saturday Review, American Scholar, Poetry, Contemporary Poetry, Voices, Ladies Home Journal, Prairie Schooner, and Botteghe Oscure. Miss Chapin’s earlier volumes of poetry are Outside of the World, Time Has No Shadow, and Plain Chant for America.
