In this radiant new collection, Franz Wright shares his regard for life in all its forms and his belief in the promise of blessing and renewal. As he watches the “Resurrection of the little apple tree outside / my window,” he shakes off his fear of mortality, concluding “what death . . . There is only / mine / or yours,– / but the world / will be filled with the living.” In prayerlike poems he invokes the one “who spoke the world / into being” and celebrates a dazzling universe–snowflakes descending at nightfall, the intense yellow petals of the September sunflower, the planet adrift in a blizzard of stars, the simple mystery of loving other people. As Wright overcomes a natural tendency toward loneliness and isolation, he gives voice to his hope for “the only animal that commits suicide,” and, to our deep pleasure, he arrives at a place of gratitude that is grounded in the earth and its moods. From the Hardcover edition.

From the seventeenth century to the early years of the twentieth, the population of Martha’s Vineyard manifested an extremely high rate of profound hereditary deafness. In stark contrast to the experience of most deaf people in our own society, the Vineyarders who were born deaf were so thoroughly integrated into the daily life of the community that they were not seen—and did not see themselves—as handicapped or as a group apart. Deaf people were included in all aspects of life, such as town politics, jobs, church affairs, and social life. How was this possible? On the Vineyard, hearing and deaf islanders alike grew up speaking sign language. This unique sociolinguistic adaptation meant that the usual barriers to communication between the hearing and the deaf, which so isolate many deaf people today, did not exist.

A rare glimpse into the outstanding private homes and gardens of Martha's Vineyard, this classic work is expanded with new pictures and commentary. Every kind of Vineyard home, from Edgartown mansions to Gay Head beach cottages, and every kind of garden, from perennial border to wildflower meadow is featured here. On the Vineyard, the natural world and the man-made exist side by side, as the Island's houses and gardens blend harmoniously into the landscape. It is that harmony, and the balance between old houses and new, that give the Vineyard much of its unique style. This world is captured in an illuminating text by long-time Vineyard resident Polly Burroughs and hundreds of stunning, full-color photographs by Lisl Dennis. Together they reveal the rich diversity and myriad charms of the houses and gardens of Martha's Vineyard.
