Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Annie Finch's wide reputation precedes her. Her first full book of poems attracted the notice and glowing approval of Robert Pinsky, Carolyn Kizer, the Bloomsbury Review, and the Washington Times. Her poems are resonating, musical celebrations of life. Through mastery of rhythm and poetic patterning, this wonderfully gifted poet liberates and illuminates the sacred in the mundane, and gives voice to the earth-centered spirituality of our era.

Annie Finchwas a finalist for the 2001 Faulkner Society's Poetry Award. Her poems have been widely published, appearing in the Yale Review, Paris Review, Prairie Schooner, Kenyon Review, and so on. She is also well-known as a writer on the craft of poetry. She teaches at Miami University in Ohio.

Synopsis:

Poetry. A Forward Magazine's Book of the Year finalist, CALENDARS' lyrics echo in the reader's ear long after the book is closed. "Annie Finch is an American original, a master of control who shows no fear of excess, and none of quietness either"--Ron Silliman. Finch's unique voice pulses through CALENDARS, singing the cycles of time that unite our lives with nature and each other. As they mark the turns in the wheel of the year, these innovative and radically traditional poems conjure a new Self, freed into a reality without centers.
