Discussion Leader: Dennis Etzel Jr.

William Stafford may have been named Oregon's poet laureate, but he was a Kansas boy at heart - born in Hutchinson - and his youth in Kansas deeply inflected his poetry. "Mine was a Midwest home - you can keep your world," he proclaimed in the poem "One Home." Stafford's poetry is rooted in a sense of place, and the work in this collection shows how Kansas as a place continued to inform his thought and verse. 210 pp.
