Garrison Keillor loves poetry. Each day, public radio listeners hear him read one of his favourite poems on The Writer s Almanac. He has published three previous poetry collections: 3 DOZ. POEMS (the most popular poems from the radio program), GOOD POEMS (classic and contemporary poems), and GOOD...
POEMS FOR HARD TIMES (consoling, rousing, and truthful poems to raise flagging spirits). Fans of A PRAIRIE HOME COMPANION know that Keillor also writes poetry - sonnets, in fact. He occasionally reads one of his own sonnets on the air, and it s a rare treat.
77 Love Sonnets collects Keillor s own poems about love, written over the past twenty-five years. Love is broadly defined; sometimes it s love for a place ( Midwest ), sometimes it s romantic love ( Supper ), sometimes it s love of God ( Prayer ).
Written from the heart to the heart, featuring music by A PRAIRIE HOME COMPANION regulars Rich Dworsky and Pat Donohue, these poems will please anyone who believes that poetry is a good thing and love is even better.
