Item Description...
Poet and philosopher Mark Nepo was diagnosed with a rare form of lymphoma in 1987. His journey back to health awakened a new life. In his latest book, Nepo explores how sacred and useful everything is. As such, this book is for everyone, not just for those facing illness or pursuing poetry. The poems affirm that surviving has more to do with our authenticity than our longevity. The sixty-eight poems gathered here are the culmination of many years of inquiry. As a teacher, Nepo has journeyed with others around these themes across the country and abroad. In leading spiritual retreats, in working with healing and medical communities, and in his teaching as a poet, his work is widely accessible and used by many.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
insightful poems of a cancer survivor  Apr 8, 2007
The title is more than tricky or artful, poetic wordplay. Nepo is a cancer survivor. This is the latest volume in the publisher's Literature of Illness imprint. As Rich Frankel, a professor of Medicine and Geriatrics, writes with regard to Nepo's poems in his Foreword, "[T]he experience of surviving a life threatening disease is not a return to homeostasis, the way things were, but rather a radical transformation from which there is no turning back." From his eighteen-year struggle with cancer, Nepo has developed a prescience. The poet does not lament, though there are moments of anguish, fear, and confusion. But these are basically way stations in what is mainly a spiritual journey, a transformation; and they are not left raw and abrasive, but put as a metaphor, insight, or adage true to the poet's prescience. "We are all just guests in a body/that comes and goes..." - from Earth Guest. Learning he had cancer was like "jumping/with full consent/into an empty well/so deep I only remember/falling into the dark/till falling without direction put me to sleep..." - from Thoracic Surgery. Both ancient paganistic and Christian ideas about the experience and the outcome of transformation are reflected in the poems. Knowing Nepo is a cancer survivor adds depth to the reading of the poems; but as with all good poetry, the poems stand on their own.
