Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Erin Belieu's debut, Infanta, was selected for the National Poetry Series and quickly sold through its large first printing. Both The Washington Post and the National Book Critics Circle named it as one of the best poetry books for 1993.

Now, in her second book, Belieu is proving herself a poet worthy of all the recognition. Coaxing a voice of urban chic from the dirt-filled roots of rural tension, these poems, many of which have appeared in publications such as The New York Times and The Atlantic Monthly, are as captivating as any in American poetry.

"Here are freshness and art...a distinctive new voice, outpacing conventional expectations."-Robert Pinsky

BR>Erin Belieu was born in 1965 in Omaha, Nebraska, and educated at the University of Nebraska, Ohio State University, and Boston University. In addition to winning the National Poetry Series, she has received the Academy of American Poets Prize. She teaches at Kenyon College in Cambier, Ohio.

Synopsis:

The second book by an up-and-coming poet whose poetry has garnered impressive critical acclaim.

Synopsis:

Poetry. In her second collection, ONE ABOVE AND ONE BELOW, Belieu again seduces her readers with a precise and delicious language. As she tries to make sense out of what constitutes the truest self, she ranges from the elegiac horizon of the Great Plains to an equally open embrace of a more frenzied, cosmopolitan world. Whether angry or humorous, formal or free, Belieu's poems "dive and soar," gathering an exhilirating, exquisite momentum.
