Cathedral of Nervous Horses: New & Selected Poems
by W.E. Butts

Volume IV of the Hobblebush Granite State Poetry Series is a collection of new and selected poems by W. E. Butts, New Hampshire Poet Laureate, 2009–2013.
“Cathedral of Nervous Horses looks back on thirty years of poetic accomplishment . . . I am most stirred by [the author’s] uncanny evocations of the 1950s and 1960s . . . . No one, and I mean that emphatically, exclusively—no one can claim, as might the fabulous R & B musicians in ‘Radio Time,‘ to be a more masterful ‘historian of desire.’ ”—Sydney Lea, Vermont Poet Laureate
“W. E. Butts is a poet for whom the past is still very much alive . . . Yet these poems about the past are energized by something much stronger than nostalgia. For Butts, past events can resonate with profound and positive results into the present. He knows that life is full of joys and sorrows . . . in his honest, unpretentious, accepting, and affirmative voice, he tends to find something magical in it, something worth celebrating.” —David Allan Evans, South Dakota Poet Laureate
