"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 Pinsky In 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.
