Editors’ Choice Selection, The New York Times Book Review

** Starred Reviews ** in Library Journal and Booklist

“This robust volume is a testament to the fortitude of a great American poet’s work… [a] landmark collection.”—Raul Niño, Booklist, starred review

“[E]ven the readers who know him may not know that Harrison began as a poet and remained one for the rest of his life…. [Jim Harrison: Complete Poems is] a massive and bounteous body of work that would have made Harrison a significant American writer even if he had never published in any other genre.”—The New York Times Book Review, Editors’ Choice

“In a collection that spans decades of living and writing, there are poems of every character, many of them superb.”—Library Journal, starred review

“This densely rich book…places Harrison among the pantheon of our best American poets.” —New York Journal of Books

“I’ve always loved Jim Harrison’s poetry—so full of itself, so direct and hungry and angered and awed. I think of him in many ways as a religious poet and was surprised that he was excluded from Harold Bloom’s anthology American Religious Poems. It seemed quite the oversight.”—Joy Williams, The Paris Review

“That’s what makes his poetry so intimate: the sense that it comes to us without filter, without the expectations or necessity of narrative. It is why I will always think of Harrison, most of all, as a poet.”—David Ulin, Alta

“When [Jim Harrison: Complete Poems] arrives in the mail I stare at it for a time a little dumbfounded. It is gorgeous and it is massive…. The next day I carried it north with me to the Flathead Indian Reservation. I am teaching poetry to fourth- and fifth graders there. At the beginning of each of four classes I held the book up for everyone to see. We passed it around so everyone could feel its heft, see the photo on the back cover of the grizzled poet, his eyes turned down, drawing on the ubiquitous cigarette. I described it as a physical representation of a life devoted to poetry and how wonderful that is. I was asked how long it will take me to read the whole thing. ‘A lifetime,’ I answer.”—Chris La Tray, The Missoulian

“Harrison described his own work as ‘(c)rude, holy, natural, political, sexual,’ and page after page here he hits those notes time and again.”—Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“The publication of the Jim Harrison: Complete Poems will be the major poetic event of the season.”— Paul Yamazaki, City Lights Booksellers

“Jim Harrison’s poems have a vitality, range, and revelation equal in importance to the more widely known fiction. A pitch-perfect field guide, Harrison scouts with full sense of kinship and acrobatic powers of both language and imagination his life’s landscapes, events, and fellow creatures. His direct, chiselled statements of thought, feeling, and invention make the world bigger in every dimension.”— Jane Hirshfield, Ploughshares

“Some of the poems are funny, some are serious, and many are bawdy, but none will disappoint a reader.” —Bill Castanier, Lansing City Pulse

From the Introduction by Terry Tempest Williams: “Jim Harrison…was among the great ones—an elevated soul in all his unruliness who favored his senses and courted the wild on the page and in the world. His was a storied life that loomed large, and we are the beneficiaries. ‘Such a powerful wounded poet—wrote as if he had to sing with a cut throat . . . and he did have to sing,’ said Jorie Graham.”

Jim Harrison: Complete Poems is the definitive collection from one of America’s iconic writers. Introduced by activist and naturalist writer Terry Tempest Williams, this tour de force contains every poem Harrison published over his fifty-year career, as well as a section of previously unpublished “Last Poems.” Here are the nature-based lyrics of his early work, the high-velocity ghazals, a harrowing prose-poem “correspondence” with a Russian suicide, the riverine suites, fearless meditations inspired by the Zen monk Crazy Clou
