Photographing Eden: Poems
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
Beschreibung"Photographing Eden "presents the first full-length collection of poems by a major new talent. The poems are always attentive to artistic mediums and the craft behind them because our struggle is to make something perfect in the imperfect world in which we live, while acknowledging the impossibility of that quest. Gray's poems range all over, from adventures in Egyptian ruins with machine-gun-toting tourist police to the western edge of the foggy Irish coastline, and to the mythic past, where Adam and Eve visit a zoo and Eden has become a nature preserve.
PortraitJason Gray is the author of two chapbooks of poetry, How to Paint the Savior Dead, winner of the Wick Chapbook Award, and Adam & Eve Go to the Zoo. His poems and reviews have appeared in Poetry, American Poetry Review, Southern Review, and elsewhere. He coedits the online literary journal Unsplendid (www.unsplendid.com).
Pressestimmen"Jason Gray's gift is quiet but profound. He brings the same respectful eye to nature as to acts of art - an eye that adds its own light to the occasions. A book for delectation." - Heather McHugh, final judge"
