Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In An Unkindness of Ravens, Meg Kearney's poems weave voices of estrangement and redemption: mothers, daughters, lovers of gin and dead things. In the middle poems, the protagonist confronts "Raven": a figure of guises and disguises, revealing the speaker's fears and angst. National Book Critics Circle Award-winning poet Donald Hall has written the Foreword.

Meg Kearney is the Associate Director of the National Book Foundation. She was the recipient of the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts and New York Times fellowships and received the Alice M. Sellers Academy of American Poets Prize in 1998. She lives in New York City.

Synopsis:

An Unkindness of Ravens is a poetry book filled with reticence and revelation, secrecy and suprise.

Synopsis:

Poetry. Published as part of the A. Poulin, Jr. New Poets of America Series. "Meg Kearney's AN UNKINDNESS OF RAVENS is a book of reticence and revelation, secrecy and surprise. Few poems are narrative, but something like a story emerges from these lyrics alive with hurt and splendor. Although the poems radiate personal feeling, we have no sense of confessional poetry as deliberate self-revelation; Kearney's confessional is Catholic. Some poems, especially the raven series, derive from the recesses of dream; others observe the world from outside. Wherever place her poems come from, their beauty lies in their language"-Donald Hall from the Foreword.
