David Whyte speaks of the ancient Celtic tradition in beautiful, heartfelt poems
Full Description

On the first half of this recording, David Whyte recites new poems from the cycle of Irish poems contained in his work, River Flow: New & Selected Poems. Drawing from places of pilgrimage he has visited during his travels, he speaks of the way the ancient Celtic tradition embodies an edge between past and present; a way that is neither this nor that; a moveable form of celebration between the two worlds that refuses to choose between them. In the second half, David uses the language of poetry to illuminate the secret voices that are present in everyday life.

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.
