Planting Red Geraniums: Discovered Poems of James Hearst

Planting Red Geraniums: Discovered Poems of James Hearst
(2017, edited by Jim O'Loughlin)
This collection of 23 recently discovered poems adds new depth and complexity to the oeuvre of James Hearst (1900-83), the Iowa farmer-poet who published more than 600 poems during his lifetime. Born and raised in rural Cedar Falls, Hearst lived and worked for many years on his family's farm, which provided inspiration for much of his poetry. He saw in both agriculture and poetry the means of creating significance and meaning from the surrounding world.
