This major retrospective of the poetry of Appalachian author and songwriter Steven R. Cope includes essentially all of his verse from two decades not previously published in book form. Here we catch not only a glimpse of Furrbawl, the forest gnome who is the poet's primordial alter ego, but many other such visions, mysterious, exotic, even disturbing, lurking in the ordinary, conducting us on a journey across twenty years rich in poetic imagination and observation, through wonder and humor and despair and hope, and through Cope's own evolution as a poet. Piercingly original, The Furrbawl Poems is a necessary addition to the annals of contemporary literature.
