"Robert Adams is perhaps America's most thoughtful and eloquent living photographer-writer. [Listening to the River] contains Adams's recent black-and-white photographs of fields and farms and the sides of roads, pictures that seem utterly unprepossessing at first glance but that, like the previously published poems by William Stafford accompanying them, reward close attention."--The New York Times Book Review
"There is nothing arcane or recondite about his photographs. There is more affection in them then irony, more wonder than pronouncement, and in that sense they are not academic. An ordinary man or woman can look into many of his images and feel at home. His landscapes are familiar, unpretentious. We know these things that he is showing us, though we likely have never seen some of them so vividly....Robert Adams speaks to us as human beings, to our dreams for grace and dignity, and I would say holiness in the world."--Barry Lopez, author of Arctic Dreams, on Robert Adams's pictures
About the Author
William Stafford (1914-1993) was raised in Kansas but spent much of his life in Oregon, where he worked as a college teacher. His many books of poetry-- among them Stories That Could Be True, A Glass Face in the Rain, and Smoke's Way-- earned him the admiration and affection of a wide, general audience, and of his colleagues. Many readers agree with the poet Louis Simpson that if the United States is "to have a sense of itself, it will be through work like Stafford's."
