PRAISE FOR WYATT TOWNLEY'S POETRY


"A breathtaking collection of poems."
-THE KANSAS CITY STAR


"The power and scope of Wyatt Townley's The Afterlives of Trees shakes you to your very bones. There's some audaciously formidable poetry in this book."
- JOHN WEISMAN, seven time New York Times bestselling author


"A stupendous poet."
-PATRICIA TRAXLER


"The Afterlives of Trees brings together exquisite poetry of great tenderness, strength, and beauty, but it is also a book of revelation….a love song to the life force."
-CARYN MIRRIAM-GOLDBERG, Poet Laureate of Kansas


"An altogether extraordinary woman.…Her poetic gifts are substantial."
-MICHAEL HAMMOND, former Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts


"[Her] poems are constantly surprising, and interestingly so."
-TOBIAS WOLFF


"Go into the woods, which are these pages. These accomplished poems open a clearing through which to see the world afresh. Lucid, imaginative, present, they focus on small details and expand to encompass the universe...I wish I could have written these poems, perhaps especially the love poems-but then, they are all love poems."
-LAUREL BLOSSOM
