NOVANGLUS The New Englander
Poetry Inspired by New England
About the Book
Novanglus, meaning “New England”, was the name used by John Adams, the quintessential New Englander of his day, in a number of essays. This collection of poetry is inspired by the author’s own experiences growing up in New England.
New England is known for its four distinctive seasons, and the poems herein move through each season. On a deeper level, each season reflects relationships: from the beginnings of love in summer, through the stresses of fall and loss of winter, into new beginnings and growth in the spring.
