Description

New from a poet renowned for her lyricism, wisdom, and originality Alison Hawthorne Deming 's fourth collection of poems follows the paths of imagination into meditations on salt, love, Hurricane Katrina, Greek myth, and the search for extraterrestrial life, all linked by the poet's faith in art as an instrument for creating meaning, beauty, and continuity--virtues diminished by the velocity and violence of our historical moment. The final long poem "The Flight," inspired by the works of A. R. Ammons, is a twenty-first century epic poised on the verge of our discovering life beyond Earth.
