GWP is honored to publish a new collection of poems from Robert Pack, entitled All One Breath, whose underlying theme is humankind’s kinship with the other inhabitants of the Earth. The poems address the grim vision of how our irresponsible actions have endangered this fragile home planet; however, they also celebrate with their sheer exuberance and lyricism how the imagination can still save us with humor, insight, and tender regard for what endures. This distinguished poet has never been more compelling, more comfortably authoritative in his poetic line, more precise as an observer, or indeed more wise.
