Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The poems of Old & New Testaments explore Lynn Powell's Southern Baptist upbringing and how that history echoes through her adult experiences of sexual love, self-knowledge, loss, and motherhood. Powell's poems chronicle a life "lush with the ordinary", where truths reveal themselves in the "same, sad, immutable text" of a withered face and in a child's rickety letters tilting across the page. When grace answers grief in these poems, it is not with reassurance, but with a call to "the narrow path to Love".

Book News Annotation:

Poems that explore Powell's Southern Baptist upbringing and how that history resonates through her adult experiences of love, loss, and motherhood. Winner of the 1995 Brittingham Prize in Poetry. Paper edition (unseen), $10.95.
