"For Aliki Barnstone, poetry seems a natural medium. The vision and cadences of these poems suggest a sensibility for which poetry is as inevitable as breathing or eating."--Robert PinskyIn "Bright Body," Aliki Barnstone seeks to unite mind and body, spirit and matter, the individual and the body politic. Many of the poems are set in Las Vegas, a monument to materialism. This city of extremes informs Barnstone's vision and serves as a backdrop for her meditations on American history, war, the environment, erotic love, and the love of mother and child.Aliki Barnstone is a poet, translator, and critic.
