Written over forty years, MOUNTAINS AND RIVERS WITHOUT END is poet Gary Snyder's highest achievment. Here he has presented a perception of the world that has taken four decades of experience to put into words. The collection moves chronologically from Snyder's glimpse in the 50's of a Japanese scroll that gave the book its name, though his wanderings in the American West, and into senescene. Decades of travel have exposure Snyder to so much of our planet, and this experience forms a major part of MOUNTAINS AND RIVERS WITHOUT END.

A River Without End. Born of the earth, a spring where riven rocks release the tears of heaven fallen on the ancient peaks from which I well, enlivened with a thousand rivulets from fog condensed, filled out by freshets bold with falling. Born of the earth, a spring where riven rocks release the tears of heaven fallen on the ancient peaks from which I well, enlivened with a thousand rivulets from fog condensed, filled out by freshets bold with falling rain and melting snow, I am a stream which flows from all the waters of the age, a river rising in the mountains, ending i. Grown wide, with ponderous majesty I cross the coastal plain, my waters dark and rich with silt from all that I have known, creating fertile deltas black with loam and full of life where river, land and sea become a holy trinity.

World Without End, . 0. Part of Kingsbridge series by Ken Follett. Look at that crowd of idiots," she said, pointing to the city end of the ruined bridge. A few yards away, a flight of stone steps led up from the river to a gate in the priory wall. Caris made a decision. Pointing, she said to Ralph: "Take the earl that way into the priory. Dozens of people were standing gawping at the scene of carnage in front of them. Get all the strong men down here," she went on.

In the sixth volume of the River City Poetry Series, Matthew Graham muses over the stages of life and the entelechy of the human spirit, over the internal missions that are seeded within us from birth, and yet how our environments define and transform us. These poems describe by turns a childhood infused with adult longing (collecting fireflies in a jelly jar becomes a precognitive exercise), an adulthood choked with memories (daylight savings time becomes an excuse to invoke the past), and the sweet redemption of love, as passing time provides the medium and grace for mistakes to be, finally, forgiven: Time turns us all toward the inevitable struggle between opening and closing, between the waiting and the going somewhere. Here is a travelogue to a place invented, a country familiar yet unexpected.Series editor Andrew Hudgins says: A thoughtful elegiac voice pervades Matthew Graham's World Without End, his new book and best book yet. A small sense of mourning arises even in his celebration of deep and continuing love because he knows love, in the fullness of time, inevitably ends, even if the lovers never falter in their loving. That doubled understanding moves him to the richest music in a life work rich in music and meditation. World Without End is stately without stiffness, thoughtful without pretense, humorous without being indecorous, clear without being simple. It offers a pleasure in every line and a fresh moment of insight and understanding on every page.
