Rain Taxi reviews Unchopping a Tree by W. S. Merwin with drawings by Liz Ward in this month's issue. "The title of this beautifully printed book may seem idealistically fanciful, as if somehow a tree can be 'unchopped' after it has been knocked down. Merwin goes through a set of near-surreal exercises here, complemented by the subtle yet ennobling art of Liz Ward. So how does one undo damage? It can’t be done, of course, but Merwin lists steps as if it can—marrying the sawdust to the bark, enticing dead branches and leaves with a former luster... This collection of pristine prose poems and delicately rendered art is surely a reminder that perhaps our wanton destruction of the planet can be reversed." Read the full review.
