Robert Morgan is a profoundly ecological poet with a vision of endless variety in the unity of nature. More than that, his vision does not assume a realm of nature and a separate sphere of the human. In his view, the made world of culture and technology (what folklorists call the cultural landscape ) consists of scheme, strategies, and accommodations that parallel those in the natural, organic world of plants and animals. In Groundwork, Morgan has moved further into the human realm, dealing increasingly with local characters, anecdotes, superstition, and legend in such poems as Flying Snake, Mountain Bride, Reuben’s Cabin, Death Crown, and Devil’s Courthouse.
