Ivory Cradle Poemsby Anne Marie Macari
Synopses & Reviews
Poetry. Winner of the APR/Honickman First Book Prize, Anne Marie Macari's tender poems have drawn warm praise from Thomas Lux, Jean Valentine, and the contest judge Robert Creeley. The wonders here are those of perception, intuition, union, separation--and all the emotions these provoke. Anger, despair, but also joy, love in its flooding recognitions, relief in the world's insistent substance — Robert Creeley, from his introduction.
Ivory Cradle is the winner of the third annual American Poetry Review /Honickman First Book Prize, as chosen by poet Robert Creeley. In his introduction, Creeley writes, "now and again one comes upon a story so quietly and articulately told that it stays in mind long after, echoing, recasting the usual frames of reference and order, making whatever it is the world had been thought to be, quite changed and even, again, unknown." Ivory Cradle is such a story as it charts a personal journey through questions of faith and history, with its anger redeemed by passion and the transformative power of art.
A personal journey through faith and history, wherein anger is redeemed through passion and art.
