Abstract: Is it possible for an American poet to be influenced heavily by an encounter with another poet/painter? Throughout the pages of the book, “When I Go Back To My Home Country”: A Remembrance of Archie Ammons, author Emily Herring Wilson recounts the highlights of her 30-year friendship and association with Archie Ammons. On several occasions in the book, the author includes her own literary works to illustrate the enormous impact that her friendship with poet/painter Archie Ammons had on her own literary development. To help capture the reader’s interest, the author also includes 65 photographs, 3 color reproductions of Archie Ammons watercolor paintings, and samples of his various poems.
