Mortal stakes ; Faint thunder : new poems by Timothy Murphy( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Timothy Murphy lives on the Great Plains. He has been a grain and hog farmer and, like Wallace Stevens, an insurance salesman, but the twin joys of his life are poetry and hunting. Murphy's poetry explores faith, family, spirituality, death, farming, friendship, love, and sexuality, yet it is profoundly rooted in place -- the Red River watershed in North Dakota and western Minnesota. He tries to make sense of the wide sweep of the northern plains, to explore how place shapes poetry and how poetry shapes one’s experience of place
Devotions : poems by Timothy Murphy( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Timothy Murphy's Devotions revives this major but neglected poetic genre with variety and amplitude. In over two hundred short poems, Murphy explores the vicissitudes of modern spiritual life. Some of the poems are inspirational, celebrating the joyous mysteries of faith. Others confront the sorrows and failures of contemporary life - presenting unvarnished the painful dramas of sin, despair, repentance, and redemption. Murphy celebrates the saints, but he has not forgotten 'the battered, the drunkards, the sinners,' among whom the poet numbers himself. In these poems, the drama of redemption is not abstract but personal.-Dana Gioia."--Jacket
