A product of a narrow strip of land, this book holds a broad view
of time and world. The fifteen poets included here live and work in
an area bound by the shifting knots of the Saugatuck and Mianus
Rivers in Fairfield County. But their poems reach for a universal
language of human experience, and their locale becomes a part of
the whole earth. These poets have worked together at The Poetry
Center in Westport and Norwalk under the direction of Dale Shaw, a
mythographer and poet who, in his own words, wears laughter in his
hair. The collection includes such noted writers as Ruth Krauss and
Doris Lund.
