What Must Arise by Donald Beagle
"What Must Arise is worth the wait; an achievement both impressive and hugely enjoyable. Donald Beagle has the rare ability to involve the reader with the poem, revealing that things of which we haven't been aware deeply matter to us. This book will surely be among the outstanding poetry titles of its year, if not, indeed, of its century.”
—X. J. Kennedy, poet
These poems have appeared in journals from Carolina Quarterly in Chapel Hill to Blue Unicorn in San Francisco, and several were in a collection that won top prize in the “Major Poetry” category of the University of Michigan’s Hopwood Awards.
Donald Beagle’s books and academic articles have received numerous awards, including the Hopwood Award (University of Michigan); Ekphrasis Poetry Contest (Oakland University); the John Brubaker Award (Catholic Library Association); the Willie Parker Peace Award (Society of North Carolina Historians); and the Doralyn Hickey Award (North Carolina Library Association).
