This collection of poems chosen and introduced by Robert Bly is a new edition of a 1980 book. Here 75 poets in 150 poems chart the wonder, mystery, and beauty of the natural world. Bly provides a sampling of works of those who are, as Francis Ponge once put it, "ambassadors of the silent world." Poems by William Blake, Rumi, Kabir, Walt Whitman, Denise Levertov, Rainer Maria Rilke, Gary Snyder, and others are presented along with Bly's wise and often prophetic commentary. "News of the Universe" is a wonderful multicultural anthology which is perfect for spiritual seekers, nature lovers, and all those who believe in "night intelligence."
