In The Wars of Heaven, Richard Currey focuses his poetic imagination on the lives of the working class in West Virginia-a train engineer, an epileptic, coal miners and outlaws, the fragile and dispossessed-depicting an isolated world of hardship, human endurance, and hard-won dignity. Like Sherwood Anderson's ""Winesburg, Ohio, "" Currey speaks of a rural life with power and tenderness, giving us a lyric rendering of times and places now largely gone. The stirring clarity of people and landscape persists in the reader's imagination.
