Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. These are humane and demanding poems. Their craft and power is in their ability to spin the reader around in a narrative darkness only to have a lyric wit and resolve suddenly lit up, revealing beautifully organized spaces of power and emotion. This is persuasive writing: a poetry in which almost every gesture of language is working its passage back into a world of true, powerful feeling --Eavan Boland. WINGED INSECTS is the winner of the 1998 White Pine Press Poetry Prize. Joel Long received an M.F.A in poetry at University of Utah, and currently teaches Creative Writing and Art History in West Jordan, Utah.

Synopsis:

"Joel Long knows the fine art of creating surprise in language, the pleasure and the insight of the right surprise coming in a poem at just the right moment. The poems in Winged Insects demonstrate this poet's ability to compose stunning imagery... to close a poem with an ending both inevitable and amazing. They offer openings into new worlds profound, familiar, and unexpected."

-- Pattiann Rogers

Synopsis:

Winner of the 1998 White Pine Press Poetry Prize, selected by Jane Hirshfield.

Synopsis:

“Joel Long’s perceptively imagined poems reside in the permeable membrane of inner and outer, where the world’s events and objects are transformed by interior life. Quietly tender and keenly observed, these poems are thoughtful beauty and grace.”—Jane Hirshfield

“These poems . . . offer openings into new worlds profound familiar, and unexpected.”—Pattiann Rogers
