About this product
- DescriptionRebecca Givens Rolland embraces an assimilation of internal feeling and thought with circumstances of the natural world and the conflicts and triumphs of our human endeavors. Here, we discover a language that seeks to at once replicate and transcend experiences of loss and disaster, and together with the poet ''we hope that such bold fates will t forget us.'' Even at the speaker's most vulnerable moments, when ''Each word we d spoken / scowls back, mirrored in barrels of wind'' these personal poems insist on renewal. With daring honesty and formal skill, The Wreck of Birds achieves a revelatory otherness what Keats called the ''soul-making task'' of poetry. -- Walter E. Butts, 2009-2014 New Hampshire Poet Laureate <br>The May Sarton New Hampshire Prize is named for May Sarton, the rewned velist, memoirist, poet, and feminist (1912-1995) who lived for many years in Nelson, New Hampshire, t far from Peterborough, home of William L.
