About this product
- DescriptionMy Life in Heaven, the 2012 FIELD Poetry Prize winner, is striking in its subtlety, complexity, and utterly distinctive voice, according to the prize judges David Young and David Walker. These moment-to-moment explorations of intimacy's intricacies use the power of the poetic line to illuminate the relationship of self to the beloved, nature, and the divine. This is a book of love poems, romancing the line between self and other. My Life in Heaven will stun readers who admire the best of contemporary American poetry in the vein of Donald Revell, Brenda Hillman, Charles Wright, and Jean Valentine. Samyn's poems sing with the elusive fire of Emily Dickinson.
