In American Poets, Volume 47, we asked some of our Chancellors to recommend two books—one essential volume revisited for inspiration and one beloved text that more people should know about. Experience these books for yourself with our new Recommended Reading series, conveniently grouped by Chancellor.

 

Naomi Shihab Nye's Essential Book:

The Way It Is: New & Selected Poems, by William Stafford

"It is a generous gathering of Stafford's poems from a rich life of writing... a general reference for every day, mood, need, and concern."

 

Naomi Shihab Nye's Beloved Book:

Braided Creek: A Conversation in Poetry, by Jim Harrison and Ted Kooser

"The poems are so tiny and so succulent, each one a transporting hinge for the mind's happiest refreshing movements. I think every person needs to own this book."

***This book is temporarily unavailable. Find the Kindle version here. Copies will be made available through our site starting in December after a new print run.
