The Waters Under the Earth
“Siegel’s imagination is excited by the nonhuman world, and he writes about plants and animals with surprising immediacy…. A compassionate observer...he looks at them as mysterious and wonderful signs of a greater order.”
—Dana Gioia, in Poetry
The London Times LS described Robert Siegel’s poetry as “unpretentious versatility” like “returning to the mainland after a tour of the islands.” In this latest collection of poems, Siegel brings his remarkable range and technical mastery to bear on the mysteries of creation—wolves, slugs, moles, fireworks, mowing—all through a haunting a weave of mythical themes.
