About this product
- DescriptionRaised on a family farm in the Pacific Northwest, Allen Braden has deep connections to rural life. Even at its most lyrical, his language evokes the local dialect of the West, his West. These poems, balancing elegy and affirmation, measure human and animal relationships with 'brute geometry' in order to calculate the damage we require of ourselves. Returning to variations of a sonnet titled Taboo against the Word Beauty , Braden relentlessly pursues the possibility of naming the beautiful without igring what has so often and so widely been destroyed by human hands.
- Author BiographyAllen Braden is the recipient of a creative writing fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts and a residency from the Poetry Center and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. His poems have appeared in such publications as the Georgia Review, Prairie Schooner, Shenandoah, Virginia Quarterly Review, and Witness.
