About this item

Poetry. This trilogy, AS SUNRISE BECOMES THE WORLD, re-presents three books of poetry written by Louie Skipper, three books fashioned again, edited and conjoined so that the most singular feature of this poet's work steps forth in all its power and complexity. This effort rests in and shudders forth from a determination to situate one life in the midst of the lives that precede and surround it. Death is implicit to an effort like this, not only because history is treated here as a first-hand experience, but because the individual life, the life of this poet, is particularly marked by it, and measured against the need to comprehend.

This book is neither a collection of poems, nor a re-issuing. It is not a simple selection or a sampling...[but] a whole and new thing unto itself. I have read few books like it, with its scope and with its length of vision...AS SUNRISE BECOMES THE WORLD seems to me a remarkable achievement. It has done for me what great books do: it has changed the way I consider my life.—from the preface by Edward Haworth Hoeppner
