Image For BATTIN- LITTLE APOCALYPSE

BATTIN- LITTLE APOCALYPSE

Item Description
BATTIN- LITTLE APOCALYPSE-Wendy Battin doesn't look to nature for metaphors; she looks to it as metaphor. I would say she has a deeply religious imagination, if that adjective weren't now suspect; let me say, instead, that she is, at her best, a quintessentially American poet. She has her eye on origins and ends. -- J.D. McClatchy, The Hudson Review

BLAKE- PERMANENT ADDRESS

Item Description
BLAKE- PERMANENT ADDRESS-Our dense, intricate world constantly seeks new voices to express its vitality, and in Lorna Knowles Blake it has found a splendid one. The poems in Permanent Address – wistful, intimate, triumphant in their control of language yet always attuned to loss and longing – are the exhilarating example of a consciousness that is fully formed and astonishingly well-equipped to name, measure and celebrate the reality that surrounds it. -- Vijay Seshadri

BRADY- WEAL

Item Description
BRADY- WEAL-Philip Brady's Weal is the winner of the 1999 Richard Snyder Memorial Publication Prize. Brady offers a sojourner's panoramas and outstanding depth of field. The poems present themselves as majestic, audible, dangerous rivers with live banks... Weal, a word of contradictory geographies, ranging from common good to whiplash scar, rings here around a hundred years of world migrations. This is an unpredictable, demanding, strong book, each poem an exploration. -- Milton Kessler

CHAPMAN- LIGHT THICKENS

Item Description
CHAPMAN- LIGHT THICKENS- "Reading Elizabeth Biller Chapman's poems is like inhaling draught after draught of perfume, except instead of becoming numb, your sense of smell sharpens. 'Razor clams lie in the cold,creamed honey of their shells.'For pure luxe of language, no one is more adept. Chapman's imagery is stunning." Enid Shomer

DAVIDSON- LUMINOUS OTHER

Item Description
DAVIDSON - LUMINOUS OTHER "Robin Davidson's work is deeply engendered, and she writes of ordinary women—rooted in earth, reaching for light—caught between personal, social, and historical forces. She is a learned poet—her work rings with the work of photographers, painters, and other poets—who understands the work of poetry to bring light of darkness and music out of silence. She is a poet of harsh luminosity, spiritual alertness, who has been growing into the fully realized artist she was always meant to become."—Edward Hirsch

GELINEAU- APPETITE FOR THE DIVINE

Item Description
GELINEAU- APPETITE FOR THE DIVINE “Christine Gelineau has invented a new cosmology in her fascinating, ambitious, multi-part poem, Appetite for the Divine. Questioning contemporary warfare and eco-destruction while praising the green fuse in all that lives, this poet interrogates, celebrates, and re-calibrates our spiritual and cultural values. Gelineau models for us a marvelously poly-voiced poetry, an associative, gently narrative puzzle which allows her to pick through scenes of destruction and illumination toward an idea of a core of holiness in our 21st-century existence. In Appetite for the Divine, Gelineau makes time into the sublime and turns space into grace.”

GREELY-SENSE OF LOVE

Item Description
GREELY- SENSE OF LOVE-Herein Father Greeley examines the sense of love (on all levels-- sexual, social and spiritual) from a variety of perspectives. He is satirical, spiritual, whimsical, surreal, tender with a capacity for love and friendship in the most profound sense of the Christian tradition, and at times even priestly. Above all, he is an Irish wit out of the tradition of the City of Big Shoulders. Essentially a formalist in style, he most often works in the sonnet form (as did many of his priest poet forebears--e.g., John Donne, George Herbert, and Gerard Manley Hopkins), though he is sometimes given to more open forms and even the haiku on occasion.

Image For GRUNST- BLUE ORANGE

GRUNST- BLUE ORANGE

Item Description
ROBERT GRUNST- BLUE ORANGE - PUBLICATION DATE: MAY 15, 2012- Winner of the Robert McGovern Publication Prize- "Blue Orange is an extraordinarily vibrant book, peopled with vivid characters—Smethers, Dottie, Ramón—come alive, singing gospel, bowling, planting, harvesting, driving to Korea in an old Ford. The vignettes make one nostalgic for a carefree, exultant small town mid-America, even if this world seems oddly archetypal, hyper-real and historicized in a tintype. Even if, like Gaspar and Miguel Corte Real’s, Donald’s whereabouts will never be settled; even if roofs and swing set sets are treacherous. Even if the dogs…. Beyond family and tribe the book attempts a daring global reach in various colorful travel poems: exuberant flora and fauna assert themselves—marmosets, shrikes, horses telling tales and leaping out of their otherworldly Latin America taxonomies, making ‘elsewhere’ here. Ultimately, this book is a joyous reading adventure, making even the most blue-cast among us sing ‘hallelujah!’ and devour tasty oranges. I love this book!” - Marilyn Chin

HENNESSY, CONEY ISLAND PILGRIMS

Item Description
HENNESSY, CONEY ISLAND PILGRIMS In his new collection, CONEY ISLAND PILGRIMS, John Hennessy does more than catalogue the things of this world; he sanctifies them: bruised strawberries, Kangols, an unleashed pit bull, Puccini's Suor Angelica, rainy afternoons, Big Bird. It's all here, reconstituted in language and forms that do more than lodge a mirror before our mind's eye. These poems are the gateway to a kingdom of rhythmic feeling, linguistic order, and imaginative explorations."—Major Jackson

JACKSON- UNAUTHORIZED AUTOBIOGRAPHY

Item Description
JACKSON- UNAUTHORIZED AUTOBIOGRAPHY-His lines are witnesses of tremendous density and speed of the more ever powerful NOW in human history. As technology had to adapt to the godhead's voracious needs, so the poets have to eat exactly the same spot with even higher lucidity, more intelligence and compassion to mourn, to understand and to redeem. Richard Jackson does it with more inclusiveness than anybody else I know. His writing helps us to make sense. It protects us against suffocation. It bathes our lives. -- Tomaz Salamun

Item Description
LOO- STRANGERS IN A HOMELAND-Jeffrey Loo's poems are delicately lyrical meditations of great tensile strength - more than enough for their weighty subjects, politics and history. While his own ethnic struggle in and with America informs the writing, his vision is broad, and his inmost focus is not critique but empathy, as evoked by his elegy for Etheridge Knight, a masterpiece. -- David Moolten, author of Plums and Ashes

Item Description
MEEK- GENOME RHAPSODIES- 2014 Snyder Prize winner, selected by Angie Estes, final judge and 2015 Kingsley Tufts Poetry Prize recipient: "The Genome Rhapsodies opens with Gregor Mendel’s question: “What is inherited, and how?” Like strands of DNA, the syntax in these brilliant and moving poems intertwines with the infinitely recombinant moments and utterances that comprise our lives, revealing that what we inherit, first and finally, is language itself. … “Try to Remember Before Language,” one poem urges us, but of course we can’t. These poems re-member us in language and reveal how the past becomes us, in every sense of the word; they are gorgeous, unforgettable works of art.”
