Fear during a daughter's life-threatening illness, grief over her mother's death, nostalgia for family gatherings in summers past: All lead Gorham to consider how perfection is interlaced with pain, desire and even sin. A contemplative, lyrical, splendid collection.

Because I think life is like that, tragedy right alongside humor. The book foregoes many of the surrealist techniques of Sunday and focuses instead on an increasingly careful and accurate depiction of the real world.
I got more interested in subjects, identifiable subjects other than my own angst or ennui or things like that. I got better and better, I believe, at the craft. I paid more and more attention to the craft.
Making poems rhythmical and musical and believable as human speech and as distilled and tight as possible is very important to me. I started looking outside of myself a lot more for subjects.
Hughey, Elizabeth | quakecazews.tk
I read a great deal of history, turned more outward as opposed to inward. You see their lives changed by poetry. You see someone beginning to learn how to articulate and express themselves in this very tight art form, in this very distilled manner. You see all sorts and hear all sorts of really human stuff, really human business. I do it because I love to do it, and because I don't have any choice.

To me, it makes me feel more alive, reading good poetry. Managing editor, Iowa Review, , and Ploughshares, Prose Home Harriet Blog. Visit Home Events Exhibitions Library.
