Abstract:

These essays employ fire as a metaphor for the crucial moment when deeply held viewpoints yield to new experiences - the moment when our spirits and minds broaden and mature ... [The author] here writes and riffs on a wide range of topics. He explores southwestern European Paleolithic cave art, and his own personal poetic history with haiku. He offers ... reminiscences of his youthful West Coast logging and trail crew day, and the talks he gave in Paris and Tokyo on art and archetypes. He honors poets of his generation, like Philip Whalen and Allen Ginsberg, and meditates on art, labor, and the making of families, houses, and homesteads.-Dust jacket.
