About this product
- DescriptionThe title of James Harms' latest collection, After West, is both deliberately nsensical and assertively plain: west is a direction, there is thing after it; but west is also a concept, a symbol that means all that it ever has, and yet seems suddenly, and oddly, imprecise. As a native Californian w living in West Virginia, Harms is fascinated and frustrated by the way contemporary American culture has rechanneled and reinvented the frontier spirit, an aspect of our national identity that has clearly evolved from the literal to the metaphorical. In these poems he enacts a verbal response to the condition of change, (perhaps the central anxiety of our culture) which might be best observed in the laboratory of California, where the spirit of exploration reached a geological endpoint, and where it w confronts a sea of ennui and paraia instead of the actual Pacific.
- Author BiographyJAMES HARMS awards include a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, three Pushcart Prizes, and the PEN/Revson Fellowship. He lives with his wife, Amanda Cobb, and their children in Morgantown, West Virginia, where he teaches at West Virginia University.
