Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Working in the narrative tradition of Robinson, Frost, and Jeffers, Robert McDowell is a leading figure in the expansive poetry movement. His narrative poems deliver the depth and complexity of a novel with a cinematic swiftness. They are accessible, graceful, spiritual without pretension, inhabited by characters tethered to the world.

Review:

"Following a trajectory from apocalypse to redemption, Story Line press founder Robert McDowell's third collection invites readers to go 'into the writing where anything/ Can happen.'...McDowell appeals to grace in part as a response to violence, as in his depiction of working in a slaughterhouse...or in three blank-verse monologues that witness, among other things, violence against women." Publisher's Weekly

Review:

"His new poems constitute quite an advance beyond The Diviners (1995), his previous book of poetry, a long narrative, engaging but sketchy in characterization and rather bleached in description. These are more vivid, meatier poems....Very impressive." Ray Olson, Booklist
