Harold Enrico is a rare poet who combines the deepest traditions of our history, our spirituality, with the colourful imagery of the Pacific Northwest. He has been hailed as a major poetic voice by George Woodcock, praised by Theodore Roethke, and selected by Poetry Chicago and Choice magazine. A Second Earth contains the finest poems from his three earlier collections - Now, A Thousand Years from Now, Rip Current and Dog Star - along with a substantial section of new poems.

Harold James Enrico was born in 1921 in Cle Elum, Washington. In 1939 he entered the University of Washington to study music, languages, and literature. World War II intervened, and he served in the US Army for four years; he was passionately opposed to war the rest of his life. In 1945, while studying German in New York City, he met his future wife, Theresa Conroy. They married on St. Patrick's Day 1946; they had five children and two grandsons. After the war, he received his masters degree at the University of Washington, and earned his doctorate in Comparative Literature in 1970. For thirty-three years he taught foreign languages and humanities in community colleges. He travelled and wrote poetry throughout his life. He passed away February 20, 2008.
