More Here Than Light

More Here Than Light

By A.V. Christie

The poems in More Here Than Light are full of hard-won truths, in which the intensity of the poet’s experience is supported by language, phrasing, syntax, and structure. Reading these poems is to watch A.V. Christie growing, evolving, taking risks, and writing, in the most honest, unflinching way possible, about the pressing concerns of life’s successive stages: the formation and disintegration of families, the beginning and end of a marriage, the bond between mother and child, the exigencies of artistic making, and finally, the painful confrontation with her own mortality. There are no evasions. Christie’s poetic ‘task,’ as I imagine it, was to come to a deeper understanding of herself and the external forces which shaped her life and the lives of those around her. She succeeds admirably and unforgettably. - Elizabeth Spires, author of A Memory of the Future

Expedition: New and Selected Poems

Expedition: New and Selected Poems

By Arthur Vogelsang

. . . generated by energetic, unconventional inquiry into all manner of human experience . . . . the sweeping, ironically interrogative aspect of the poems . . . the authoritative, oddly direct original persona . . . . These are dreamlike yet wide awake poems, and they are vulnerable, despite their big-time bravado. They are doors, opening onto new vistas.


Now and Then: New and Selected Poems

Now and Then: New and Selected Poems

By Robert Phillips

"Robert Phillips is about the only living U.S. poet who never bores me."


Unauthorized Autobiography: New and Selected Poems

Unauthorized Autobiography: New and Selected Poems

By Richard Jackson

In its range of control, in its rich, ruminating prosody, in its capacity to contain all that it imagines, and especially in its power to place the corruptions of the world against those of the heart, it represents a poetry of scale, in fine yet compelling excess, informed "indeed exalted" by intelligence, irony, vision.


Fool: Selected Poems

Fool: Selected Poems

By Robert McGovern

Three words run through my mind repeatedly as I read Robert McGovern's Fool: Selected Poems - intelligence, sensitivity, compassion. This work withstands the tests of craft and life.
