Cave Vitae

Cave Vitae Diana Adams Narrative meets surrealism and feeling fires intellect in Cave Vitae a place where each poem gives off the fresh scent of the new. Adams understands the just-born image, can flush it out of hiding with one deft turn of a line, one twist of syntax, one startling phrase, and she delights in provoking intellect and emotion simultaneously. Here is where pure lyricism has gone, where it still lives, "in a city of intricate bricks beneath/centuries of water." Cave Vitae is cause for rejoicing.

Clocks We Watch

Clocks We Watch

By Mary Copeland Mary Copeland dispels the myth still occasionally surfacing in the shallow waters of the ignorant that domestic life is some sort of refuge from the Big Questions rather than what it is: the very battleground where one engages them. In a language and syntax of stunning grace, vitality, nuance, and evocative power, Copeland­—as mother, daughter, lover, and acute observer of the human dilemma—takes us where the best poetry should, to the heart of the mystery of our own being. B.H. Fairchild, author of The Arrival of the Future, Early Occult Memory Systems of the Lower Midwest...

Coming To Terms

Coming To Terms

Coming To Terms Palmer Hall Hall takes us from Texas to Vietnam and back again, treating us over and over to exquisite evocations of place. We get lost in the East Texas Big Thicket, with its mosquitoes, sloughs, feral hogs, armadillos, and carnivorous plants, and wind up enjoying the pollution-enhanced beauty of a sunset. In Vietnam we sit with Hall on his berm, watch napalm explosions, and drink Chianti on Christmas. We meet local people with whom, as an interpreter, Hall can converse in Vietnamese. Stateside, we go on road trips in Mustang and Volkswagen convertibles and end up at a...
