In A Far Country Near, Father Murray Bodo reminds us that the poet’s

true vocation is one of poring over the abundant phenomena before

him—the landscape, its fauna, the lives of those who have walked

this way before, the very textures of text—and pressing those

images for revelation. Bringing together both new work and poems

published since 1980, Father Murray makes manifest the profound

nearness of all that reaches endlessly far, every discrete occasion

partaking of “the beauty of life and death—and life.”

—Scott Cairns, author of Slow Pilgrim: The Collected Poems
