Cote Blanche (New Issues Poetry & Prose) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. Foreword by Harold Bloom "Lucid, yet luscious; rich, yet modest; full of spiritual insight, yet empty of bossy certainty, Serpas's book of love and death in a Louisiana landscape is as savory and abundant as the rhythms she employs" - Molly Peacock "Like Elizabeth Bishop, her strong precursor, Martha Serpas practices a severely chastened art of poetry . . . I am moved to prophesy a considerable poetic development for her"- from the Foreword by Harold Bloom.

Synopsis:

Martha Serpas succeeds brilliantly in fulfilling the calculations of the alchemists, those great hermetic artists of medieval Europe. Cote Blanche deliberately and beautifully weds the secular to the divine in poems which, steeped in the Cajun landscape of Serpa's Louisiana, prickle with exhilarating sensuality.
