Groves' work is superlative in his generation: it is both the most traditional, in that its roots extend the widest and deepest into our tradition, and the most relevant, with its gaze fixed on the vanities and verities of today; it is both the smartest and, at times, the silliest. Even as these verses befuddle us, a superficial examination will certify them as the wittiest, but anyone who loves poetry will recognize that, though he eschews sentimentality, Groves has written some of the saddest poems of the new century. We are the proudest of podcasts to bring you Daniel Groves.

In the middle of October we hail Richard Nathan, a British adventurer who would be right at home with the likes of Robinson Crusoe or Dr. Livingstone. But his wilderness isn't to be found in the midst of far-away continents nor deep in a romantic past. His wilderness is North America and some of its longest-inhabited regions. His time is now. Mr. Nathan took a walk from Canada to Mexico. His adventure just might change the way you think about our country. Take this journey with Richard Nathan.
