Horizon Note (Brittingham Prize in Poetry) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

A son is born too early, as if coming up over the horizon before his own dawn. An elderly father lingers at life’s other horizon. In language dense and clear, playful and somber, and with a formal exactitude and emotional amplitude suggestive of her own musical training, Behn traverses these horizons “extracting,” like the horizon note that drones through traditional Indian music, “a red needle from the sky.”

About the Author

Robin Behn is the author of two previous collections of poetry, Paper Bird and The Red Hour, and co-editor of The Practice of Poetry: Writing Exercises from Poets Who Teach. She directs the M.F.A. Program in Creative Writing at the University of Alabama.
