Habitat : new and selected poems, 1965-2005 by Brendan Galvin( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Habitat, Galvin's fourteenth poetry book, combines eighteen new works with lyric pieces from the past forty years - including two book-length narratives, Wampanoag Traveler and Saints in Their Ox-Hide Boat. Galvin intimately conveys his landscapes, birds and animals, people, and weather. By elevating the commonplace to the crucial, he takes his readers very far from the familiar."--Jacket

The strength of a named thing : poems by Brendan Galvin( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Strength of a Named Thing, readers who have delighted in Brendan Galvin's exuberant style and humor will discover further pleasures in his encounters with the natural world of his native Cape Cod - the birds, foxes, roads and mysterious vegetables, and the equally quirky humans." "Many of these poems involve names and naming things. The speaker in "Pondycherry" is intrigued by that word and how it entered his consciousness. In "Captain Teabag and the Wellfleet Witches," the Captain is attacked by a group of shape-shifters he catalogs as subfellows and nobaths, skroaks, wowry-eyed giglets, drabboons, and so forth."--Jacket
Sky and island light : poems by Brendan Galvin( Book )

3 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This stunning collection presents locales ranging from Ireland to the Outer Hebrides, the Orkneys, the Shetland Islands, and the poet's native Cape Cod. In line after line Brendan Galvin evokes the physical world with a naturalist's eye, dazzlingly apparent in his brushstrokes depicting a gull sliding "on a crawl of heat among exposed hummocks" or white birches standing "like hairline / faults of frost / driven through stone." In all this seething life, in this world of

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ocean effects : poems by Brendan Galvin( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sharply observed and metaphorically inventive, Ocean Effects is a worthy follow-up to Galvin's National Book Award finalist Habitat. It includes a new vein of Galvin's trademark richly observed lyric poems on the biota, landscapes, and weathers of coastal New England. Seascapes and the natural world bracket sequences spoken by personae as various as the seventeenth-century American colonist Roger Williams, small-town cops, a squatter in the ruins of Chernobyl, a nineteenth-century Russian general in Mongolia, and a Cape Cod carpenter. Galvin's monologues, tensile and energetic free verse, are
Whirl is king : poems from a life list by Brendan Galvin( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For nearly five decades, poet Brendan Galvin has written about the birds of the tidal flats, woods, and marshes around his Cape Cod home and on islands in the North Atlantic. He knows their field marks, habits, and songs, and his work demonstrates an obvious fascination with them. Whirl is King gathers forty-three of his bird poems about herons, owls, shorebirds, warblers, raptors, wrens, and other exotic visitors blown in by wind and storm. Whirl is King features Galvin's hallmark descriptive powers and verbal music on full display and demonstrates his talent as a contemporary poet."--Jacket

The air's accomplices : poems by Brendan Galvin( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Air's Accomplices vividly evokes poet Brendan Galvin's love for the rugged landscapes of Cape Cod and Ireland and their elusive inhabitants. Weaving themes of death, migration, and aging into an exploration of the natural world, Galvin's work reflects a deep engagement with the places he and his family have called home, as well as with the triumphs and tragedies of human life. The collection begins by examining the vagaries of age, as Galvin ponders his role as caretaker for his wife following her stroke. It then moves into remembrances of walks on the beaches of Cape Cod, encounters with
