[publisher's description]
The creative act of the explorer involves recognition, seeing via what we have already seen. Poet Denise Levertov says organic poetry, “is a method of apperception, i.e., of recognizing what we perceive.... Such a poetry is exploratory.”

MaryLynne Wrye's Journey is the poetic and photographic document of a trip that became a journey, both into memory and into mystery. This is an allegory for every journey, a practice of recognition, but also a witness to the transformation that must result. Every explorer must return changed.
