Poetry. Fusing lyric meditation and narrative perceptions, the poems in Cynthia Hogue's new collection FLUX track the natural world and the self in it—from the Sonoran Desert of the Southwest to the far north of Iceland. In the tradition of the distilled and lyrically abstract poetry of Dickinson and H.D., FLUX opens into visionary language and the search for transcendence.

"Emerson described life as 'a flux of moods' and in her fine new book of poems, her best yet, Cynthia Hogue takes that impermanence, that emotional volatility, as her first subject, reading the natural world for signs, pushing the far edges of things, invoking her key female precursors as inspirational presences (Emily Dickinson, H.D.), and letting her imagination flow and even soar against the brute realities of death."—Edward Hirsch
