In this collection of poems, Robert Nathan speaks with clarity and force of things close to the heart of man, today and always, of his relation to the universe, and of love. Those who know him only through his novels will discover such a poetic gift as only he could possess.
“A deeply and genuinely moving book, either of prose or poetry, is an increasing rarity. ‘A Winter Tide’ is just this, and it should be both solace and challenge to many troubled people. It is a courageous thing to write down in black and white that the natural world is still incredibly beautiful and significant. It is even more brave to declare one’s faith in God. Mr. Nathan does both is as simple and direct a manner as a child.”
