A Writing Life
Digital goods limited to 1 product per purchase
An autobiographical journey through a poet's apprenticeship.
Full Description

In Footsteps, David creates the intimacy of a conversation, the voice quiet but alchemical, tracing the creative path through his four books of poetry: Songs for Coming Home, Where Many Rivers Meet, Fire In the Earth, and The House of Belonging.

Footsteps is an autobiographical tour with its emphasis firmly on a long apprenticeship to the difficult arts of poetry, and the stages of articulation that emerge with many years of writing.

David Whyte

About David Whyte

David Whyte grew up with a strong, imaginative influence from his Irish mother among the hills and valleys of his father’s Yorkshire. He now makes his home in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. The author of twelve books of poetry and four books of prose, David Whyte holds a degree in marine zoology and has traveled extensively, including living and working as a naturalist guide in the Galapagos Islands and leading anthropological and natural history expeditions in the Andes, Amazon, and Himalaya. He brings this wealth of experience to his poetry, lectures, and workshops. David’s life as a poet has created a readership and listenership in three normally mutually exclusive areas: the literate world of readings that most poets inhabit, the psychological and theological worlds of philosophical inquiry, and the world of vocation, work, and organizational leadership.
