Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Rachel Jamison Websters collection, September, recognizable subjects of  childbirth, motherhood, love and illness are transmuted into shimmering, elemental poems that reveal the music in the everyday, the dream in the life.    Just as September the season contains both high summer and its end, September the book yields poems that are chilled by loss yet rich in relationship—with humans and with the living earth itself.  “We too are a species,” Webster writes, “We too could know that as joy,” restoring us to our place amid the cycles and reminding us to wonder.  September is an abundant, luminous book by one of our most exciting young poets.

Synopsis:

The poems in Rachel Websters debut collection Septem­ber often address a fleeting moment. Like the month, the moment can be a single leaf falling or a season of life. Websters pastoral poems address personal physical change in the seasons of life, including childhood, love, motherhood, and death.

Websters pastoral poems address personal physical change in the seasons of life, including childhood, love, motherhood, and death. Together they lead the reader through a lyrical landscape of conversation, meditation, and healing. The work of a poet sensitive to worlds ex­ternal and internal, September speaks to the core of life and the simplicity of human events and the natural world around us.

She is currently sending out two poetry manuscripts for publication and enjoying the release of a chapbook, The Blue Grotto (Dancing Girl Press 2009).
