Abstract

A study of the Agrarian tradition from the 1920s to the present day. Paul Murphy shows how what began as a radical conservative movement eventually became, alternately, a critique of 20th-century American liberalism, a defence of the Western tradition, and a form of Southern traditionalism.

Abstract

In Aggregate of Disturbances, Michele Glazer confronts the slipperiness of language and perception as she probes natural processes-the lives of insects, the uncertainty of love, and the deaths of human beings. Nature's beauty interests Glazer less than the fact that it is chaotic, amoral, redundant, charming, and indifferent to human concern-qualities that are, in these poems, turned into another kind of beauty. "The stalk was knocked flat &the allium's great lavender sphere / kissed the dirt &in the aftermath the pendulous blossomed / tip bobbed like a wand madly attemp

Abstract

At first glance these poems (which read like one long odyssey) seem sweet and peaceful-like taking a walk in the woods. But then, things turn darker: a storm blows in-and with it some Aliens, Ghost and Ghoul, the Hanging Man. Luckily, Carlyle has a few good friends such as Ruth, the Hag, the Boy, who are staunch and true and faithful. A whistling-in-the-dark suspense alternately stimulates and enervates the witness."Carlyle is spore, and mild. / He is swoon &sherbet." Endearing and kind, if not actually cruel, he is also cold and strange. He shapeshifts, transforming

Abstract

The many meanings of ""economy"" are the ground for the mediation and lament of Ledger, Susan Wheeler's fourth book. In its Greek origins, economy referred to the stewardship of a household and, as it developed, the word also came to include aspects of government and of religious faith. Ledger places an individual's crisis of spirituality and personal stewardship, or management of her resources, against a backdrop of a culture that has focused its ""economy"" on financial gain and has misspent its own tangible and intangible resources.

Abstract

In a startling and original poetic voice, Megan Johnson in The Waiting reveals a vigilant young person who has suffered an unmentionable loss and who dismantles and reconstitutes lyric modes in a relentless search for solace. A lyric adventure of grief and search, The Waiting reinvents language from raw materials, driven by intense emotional need.

Abstract

The Thin Tear in the Fabric of Space gathers stories about coping with grief, trying to love people who have died, and--more broadly--leaving old versions of the self behind, sometimes by choice and sometimes out of necessity. In each of the nine stories, Douglas Trevor's characters are forced to face uncomfortable realities. For Elena Gavrushnekov in the title story, that means admitting after the death of her beloved that she still longs for contact with other human bodies. For Peter in "Central Square," it is realizing that, like his deceased father before him, he is drinking himself to dea

Abstract

Part detective novel, part cinematic saga, part street-smart narrative, the poems in The Life of a Hunter form a document of expedition that couples individual discovery with communal transformation. Michelle Robinson's characters are consigned to particular mechanisms of survival to various forms of physical and psychological evolutions--as a reaction to their search for an acceptable spiritual condition. The multiple identities of her pressured characters are susceptible to physical transformations that provide "a brief jolt of anesthesia, / instead of the cold tenderness of interruption."
