Haul-out: New and Selected Poems | Stephen Tudor
5 posts
Haul-Out is the final collection of new and selected poetry by Stephen Tudor, who was a professor of English at Wayne State University. A devoted mariner, Tudor wrote of his passions: sailing and the Great Lakes. Along with the best poems from Tudor's Hangdog Reef, this spirited volume features forty-three unpublished poems written before he was lost at sea in 1994. Tudor captures the shifting moods and panoramas of the Great Lakes as seen through the eyes of a sailor. From Beaver Island and the Sleeping Bear Dunes to port towns and industrial cities, Tudor explores the metaphorical rhythm and wonder of the lakes and their surroundings. Not all of the poems in this accomplished and contemplative volume are about sailing. Tudor turns his keen eye on the home and writing among other subjects. In all of his work, he fuses observation of details with larger philosophical questions about life, its challenges, and its mysteries.

CouronneDhiver Tough call! I‘m on a tight budget these days. If you are too, I vote to return them... you can save that $ for another sale later. 5y

Finally, here's all I got today!!! The Ken Follett ones are Christmas gifts for someone special, and the Alice Hoffman ones are advance Christmas gifts for myself! Wohoho! My book ban is obliterated but I dont feel guilty (yet) 😂

Today's commute was hell but looking at my new (old) books, it's almost worth it all. 😘

Christine Nice haul! FYI...you should have received a package from me yesterday for #halloweengoespostal which was totally unlabeled (aack, sorry! I remembered soon after I got home from the post office 😝). You can open the box whenever you like because most things inside are wrapped, other than the edible ones. 🙂 5y
BethM @Christine thanks for the heads up- especially bc I'm doing All Hallows' read as well! It didn't come but I'll be on the look out. 5y
