Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The poems in Bat Ode speak to the way we live today and how it feels to occupy such a mongrel, fast-changing, postmodern world. Yet rather than breaking with the linguistic or poetic past, these poems seem to renew and reinvigorate it with a fresh vision. Jeredith Merrin's sense of humor, formal poise, enormous heart, and disarming wit, situate her as one of our most convincing social poets.

About the Author
