Great Regulars: More to the point, though, is the reality

that his work was deeply inspired by his vision of God in nature, of a world where God lay behind everything, every stone, every blade of grass, every act, and every cruelty, and where the human race was but a blip on the great scale of time. His poems resonate with images of nature. And, they are indeed prophetic. One can hardly read Robinson Jeffers: Selected Poems today without being struck again and again with the trueness of the poet's vision of the route that America, and the world, would follow.
