Jim Harrison (1937-2016) is an American literary icon, famous for his novellas Legends of the Fall and Brown Dog, and his novels Dalva, Farmer, and Sundog. At the bedrock of Harrison’s success was his lifelong, enduring love of poetry. Over a fifty year writing career, in addition to his prolific work as a fiction writer, screenwriter, and beloved food critic, he published fourteen volumes of original poetry—now presented in this three-volume set.

The Complete Poems: Limited Edition Box Set features the entirety of Harrison’s poetic oeuvre in handsome hardbacks, organized by distinct eras.

Introduced by activist and naturalist writer Terry Tempest Williams, this tour de force also features a thoughtful and thought-provoking essay by a major literary figure for each volume:

Colum McCann, Vol. I
Joy Williams, Vol II
John Freeman, Vol III

Woven throughout these three volumes are Harrison’s legendary passions and appetites, his love songs and lamentations, and a clarion call to pay attention. As Joy Williams notes in her essay to Volume II: “I’ve always loved Jim Harrison’s poetry—so full of itself, so direct and hungry and angered and awed. I think of him in many ways as a religious poet...he felt that only in poetry had he found ‘the right pen’ to write what he wanted to say.”
