Elegy With a Glass of Whiskey (04 Edition)by Crystal Bacon
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
In this robust collection Crystal Bacon explores vision and the nature of myth-making, from cultural archetypes, such as Persephone and Narcissus, to Anne Frank and Chet Baker, to the personal myths that shape individual lives. Additionally, these poems, written from Bacon’s perspective and adopted personas, examine the timeless themes of birth and death, love and loss, maleness and femaleness.
As a Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation poet, Crystal Bacon led writing seminars for high school teachers in southern New Jersey. Her work has appeared in publications in the US and Canada as well as the anthology, Urban Nature: Poems about Wildlife in the City. A professor at Gloucester County College, she divides her time between New Jersey and Nova Scotia.
Winner of the 2nd annual Poulin Prize Award, chosen by Pulitzer-Prize-winning poet Stephen Dunn.
