The Waters Under the Earth

Know the beauty of creation through poetry.

Look Inside the Book

The London Times Literary Supplement described Robert Siegel's poetry as "unpretentious versatility," "like returning to the mainland after a tour of the islands." In this collection of poems, Siegel brings his remarkable range and technical mastery to bear on the mysteries of creation—wolves, slugs, moles, fireworks, mowing - all hauntingly interwoven with mythical themes.

Praise for Robert Siegel's Poetry:

"Of Robert Siegel's talents there can be no doubt. 'Brilliant' is a term too casually applied today, and it does not begin to define the remarkable range of subjects delineated and the technical mastery demonstrated.... His poems are a power." -Joseph Parisi, in Poetry

"Siegel's imagination is excited by the nonhuman world, and he writes about plants and animals with surprising immediacy.... A compassionate observer ... he looks at them as mysterious and wonderful signs of a greater order." -Dana Gioia, in Poetry

Robert Siegel was an American poet and novelist. He wrote four books of poetry and five children's novels.
