Harold Enrico is a rare poet who combines the deepest traditions of our history, our spirituality, with the colourful imagery of the Pacific Northwest. He has been hailed as a major poetic voice by George Woodcock, praised by Theodore Roethke, and selected by Poetry Chicago and Choice magazine. A Second Earth contains the finest poems from his three earlier collections —Now, A Thousand Years from Now, Rip Current and Dog Star — along with a substantial section of new poems.

“We have had a poet of real magnitude living just over the border without anyone saying much about it.”
— George Woodcock

“Enrico pays homage to artistic community with a mastery which always remains contemporary.”
— Choice

“His intellect is vital and seemingly fearless.”
— Northwest Review
