description

This small, elegant poetry collection is the first in Wind River Press's new chapbook series. Peggy Ann Tartt (Among Bones) remarks: "Readers will be moved by the author’s sensibility, clarity of voice and respect for his subject matter. Poetry and animal lovers everywhere must read The Golden Web."

The Golden Web opens onto a poetical world rife with diverse animal imagery, intellectual exploration and finely crafted storytelling. In this small, enchanting chapbook, James R. Whitley examines big questions of the heart as well as of the mind. That is, the author delves into universal themes, such as fear, love, death, myth, and anger. Readers will be moved by the author’s sensibility, clarity of voice and respect for his subject matter. Poetry and animal lovers everywhere must read The Golden Web.

—Peggy Ann Tartt

Subtle and intricate, Whitley’s poems reveal worlds which, like the metaphorical “Farmer and the Snake,” offer contrast and balance, alternative (and wise) ways of viewing. These charged poems ask us, as the best poetry does, to examine our world and our ourselves.
