Summary When read aloud, the best poems provide a particular joy for the mouth and the ear. These 158 poems about food and drink by some of our most beloved poets, from farmer-poet Wendell Berry to a James Beard Award-winning chef, make these satisfactions explicit and complete. While some of the poems here are explicitly about the food itself--the butter, the black beans, the barbecue--all are evocative of the experience of eating. Many of the poems, too, explore the everything else we bring to the table: the memories, the company, even the politics.
Subject Food -- Poetry.
Beverages ?v Poetry.
