His work also chronicles a close relationship to landscapes and histories, especially those of his native Yorkshire, Ireland, Wales and his more recent home in the Pacific Northwest of the United States.David Whyte's steadily burgeoning readership and listenership grew organically in almost all corners of the globe until it finally created a critical mass of recognition.
Whoever decided to include this in the program should be congratulated.In the last few years he has begun to appear at literary gatherings in the US and the UK such as the Oxford, Ledbury, San Miguel and Ojai poetry festivals and his poetry is beginning to be spoken of in the same breath as other major contemporary, Irish American and English poets.Join David Whyte, through the revelations of poetry and the poetic tradition, for an evening looking into some of the bold, courageous, robustly vulnerable and sometimes painful steps in bringing our seemingly interior states out into the world to do, to achieve and above all to give.David Whyte’s work initially found its way into the world outside of the traditional channels available to poets.Until the last few years, he was unknown in the University English Department or small literary magazines where poets often make their start.His work looks at the larger, timeless relationship of human beings to their world, to their relationship with creation, with others or with death.
He looks at the sufferings and joys that come with revelations and the necessities of belonging to specific families, peoples and places.
His collaborations include work with Richard Olivier, using Shakespeare's plays, especially Hamlet, as a template for the exploration of some of the difficult dynamics of contemporary leadership.

His ability to memorize poetry, his own and others, and bring it to bear on the questions that compel human beings made him as much a philosopher as a literary figure.
