Praise for Collected Poems:
[Berry’s poems] shine with a gentle wisdom of a craftsman who has thought deeply about the paradoxical strangeness and wonder of life.”The Christian Science Monitor
Wendell Berry is one of those rare individuals who speaks to us always of responsibility, of the individual cultivation of an active and aware participation in the arts of life, be they those of composing a poem, preparing a hill for planting, raising a family, working for the good of oneself and one’s neighbors, loving.”The Bloomsbury Review
Praise for Entries:
If you’re wondering where all the sincerity has gone in contemporary poetry, you may rest assured that Wendell Berry has it.”Bookpress
Disarming in its apparent simplicity and powerful in its lack of guile.”San Marcos Daily Record
Praise for Given:
For those who believe that life and the world are gifts, this is an invaluable book.”Booklist
Praise for Leavings:
[Berry’s] sage mind and poetic skills combine to skewer political arrogance, savage commercial folly, muse on growing old and lament a good dog’s death. Mindful of time and earth, of joy and love, Berry calls us to the hard work of a hope and peace and gratitude so incarnate that they rest on the ground underfoot.’”Christian Century

That accessibility and his impatience with artifice in poetry or politics may suggest why some in the academic world ignore or disparage his writing.
The later collections are not as strong as those from 1994 and before. His elegies, especially the one for his grandfather, are haunting and universal. I highly recommend living with this collection for a while.

Wendell Berry is amazing, as is this collection! For devoted fans, it should be noted his poem "On Hope" is not in here. The rest of his life's work seems to be, however! Read morePublished 21 months ago by Anonymous
