ABOUT THIS BOOK
Changeable Thunder marks David Baker's emergence as a major contemporary poet. To his abiding sense of the Midwest—its politics, people, and landscapes—Baker adds a powerful historical dimension, with poems ranging from Puritan New England to the modern subway. Of particular note are poems on the works of other writers, as he reanimates Shelley's letters, Samuel Sewall's diaries, and Walt Whitman's novel. With brilliant technique, dazzling formal variety, and moving intimacy, Baker's poems explore personal illness, erotic and familial passion, artistic creation, and the constant work and changing weather of one man's life.
