After the Harvest re-imagines a clutch of family stories that are the poet’s main connection to a disappeared ancestral farm–a complex bucolic world slipping farther into the realm of myth with every passing season. Soundful, ecclesiastical in cadence, Hawthorne’s poems form an elegy to a lost way of life and work while asserting the power that language holds to recreate.
