Format: Hardcover
With Hightower taking Copper Canyon's Hayden Carruth Prize, I decided to go back to his previous two books and I am glad I did. "Natural Trouble" is a rewarding read. Hightower has an eye for the modesty of the small family farm and can also write insightfully about art history and current events. "Tacking," a love poem toward the back of the book, was as surprising as it was arresting. He is sort of a modern Theocritus. The first three books make a lot of sense together. It will be interesting to see where this author goes next.

Format: Paperback
verse by this critic is unpretentious, i.e. without appropriate ambition, teetering on trivial....more dance than song

... to be savored. Hightower unveils a thick portal into that irrevocable condition of time, passing and escaping ... with our remnant notions of the things expired - both individual and universal - stitched back up again with the deftest needle and thread ... producing moments tactile, layered, and precise.

Format: Paperback
Scott Hightower's second collection features poems on Ekphrastic subjects, Biblical and Greek mythology, and the personal - farms in Texas, nights in bed and breakfasts, dinners at home. His work is intelligent and layered, requiring more than one reading - good examples are his poems "Festival" and "Tacking," poems which use mythology as a backdrop for the poet's relationships and observations. I highly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
Hightower really is one of the finest, most dependable poets around. These poems are clear, ambitious, and original. The first and last poems in this collection deal with Spain. He is a native of Texas. And then there are interesting poems about capital punishment to suicide bombers in between. Forget about the sloppy and trendy attention grabbers, Hightower is the real thing. His poems are classically smart and full of heart.
