"Impressive, exceptional, extraordinary, "What is a Garden?" is very highly recommended for personal, community, and academic library collections and will prove to be on inherent fascination for all dedicated gardeners and environmentalists."--Midwest Book Review "Just as paths should bend and curve to slow your walk through a garden, so the curves in Merwin's prose settle our minds into a deeper consideration of what we're reading."--New York Times
