Burn the Field (Carnegie Mellon Poetry)by Amy Beeder
Synopses & Reviews
Cockfights, a prophetic turnip, the "pharmack mysteries" of antidepressants . . . in this book the natural world looms as a potent and nearly conscious force: sacred, occasionally malicious, a visceral metaphor for desire, transcendence and loss.The power in these poems comes from a persistently idiosyncratic combination of subject, language and tone: the dark emotion energy of the subjects — illness, witch trials, lost children — the lush, urgent language, and the exacting, wry, relentlessly unsentimental tone.
