Tess and Daniel's Poetry Recommendations
A Piece of Good News by Kate Peterson
Dunce by Mary Ruefle
Indigo by Ellen Bass
After Callimachus by Stephanie Burt
RIFT ZONE, Taylor's much-anticipated third book traces literal and metaphoric fault lines--rifts between past and present, childhood and adulthood, what is and what was.
A razor-sharp tale of two couples, two marriages, a bar, and a San Francisco start-up from a best-selling, award-winning novelist.
Contemporary translations and adaptations of ancient Greek poet Callimachus by noted writer and critic Stephanie Burt
"Bass's work--about marriage and parenting, illness and recovery, small daily pleasures--cultivates an exuberance that's born of, and balanced by, close watchfulness." --The New York Times
"A bold and passionate new collection... Intimacy is rarely conveyed as gracefully as in Bass's lustrous poems." --Booklist
A rich and challenging new collection from the young award-winning poet
In those days I began to see light under every
bushel basket, light nearly splitting
the sides of the bushel basket. Light came
through the rafters of the dairy where the grackles
congregated like well-taxed citizens
