Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. "Jennifer Michael Hecht writes delightfully tricky poems that wildly bend the sense of our language as they swerve back and forth between the realms of the colloquial and the absurd. The result of these maneuvers is THE NEXT ANCIENT WORLD--a deconstructed soap-opear, a one-hundred-ring verbal circus, a gang of brazen, ingenious poems" --Billy Collins, U.S. Poet Laureate. Winner of the Tupelo Press Judge's Prize in Poetry (judged by Janet Holmes), this is Hecht's first book of poems. She is currently writing A History of Doubt for HarperCollins

Synopsis:

An incredible volume of poetry--winner of the Poetry Society of America's Norma Farber First Book Award, winner of the ForeWord Magazine Poetry Book of the Year, winner of the Tupelo Press Poetry Contest, and a Pushcart Prize nominee! Three poems were selected by Garrison Keillor for on-air reading and one of which is also in his new anthology Good Poems. A must-have!

Synopsis:

Hecht's poetry has full measures of play, wisdom, sheer joy of invention. Her poems demonstrate a mastery of craft and a unique voice buoyed by brilliance. She explains-in her endlessly appealing half-outrageous, half-conspiratorial voice-her purpose: a guidebook for those who come after. WE are the next ancient world, and Hecht makes myths out of our daily lives.
