 About the Book 

The sun has set behind the Blue Ridge,And evening with its blotting paperlifts off the light.Shadowy yards. Moon through the white pines--Landscape with Missing OvertonesNever has Charles Wrights vision been more closely aligned with the work ofMoreThe sun has set behind the Blue Ridge,And evening with its blotting paperlifts off the light.Shadowy yards. Moon through the white pines--Landscape with Missing OvertonesNever has Charles Wrights vision been more closely aligned with the work of the ancient Chinese painters and writers who inform his poetry than in his newest collection. Wrights short lyrics, in Charles Simics words, achieve a level of eloquence where the reader says to himself, if this is not wisdom, I dont know what is (The New York Review of Books). The poems in Buffalo Yoga are pristine examples of the Tennessee poets deft, painterly touch--crows in a caterwaul are scored like black notes in the bare oak--and his oblique, expansive, and profound interrogation of mortality, as in the title sequence, where the soul is a rhythmical knot. / That form unties. Or reties.
