Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. The winner of the 2000 Verse Prize, selected by Tomaz Salamun who says, These poems are healing beads against grief and terror. The person imbued with them will stand a better chance to save himself from a territory even smaller than time. This arresting first book has both an urgency and inventiveness that compels the reader forward and through: The stunted pines elude capture/ in a thousand sidetracked increments./ The wind will never understand them./ Like us it is forced to go on (Terrain Vague).

Synopsis:

In his debut volume, Richard Meier risks "an affront to the personal" by dismantling and reassembling the lyric "I." His poems demonstrate a dizzying grace while uncovering a terrain less vague than tremendously powerful. The emotional tenor of Meier's poems work with the strong intellect behind them to produce a captivating collection. Winner of the 2000 Verse Prize, selected by Tomaz Salamun.
