Natural Trouble, Scott Hightower Sep 2003

Natural Trouble, Scott Hightower

Poetry

Natural Trouble continues Scott Hightower’s investigation begun in Tin Can Tourist. Themes of inheritance extend through changes of landscape and bad weather to hungers, urgencies, inequities, and bereavements. Hightower also reminds us that the practice of writing is at the core of democracy: poetry seeks a foundation in the truth of the individual, guaranteed and restored through the integrity of language.
