Poetry. African American Studies. With MARINE LIFE: A WORLD IN POEMS, 2009 Pushcart Prize nominee and 2009 Poets and Writers Magazine Debut Poet Karen S. Williams offers a lush and lyrical new collection: a tender, evocative exploration of life in and out of the sea. Stirred by her lifelong interest in creation and the beauteous lessons of the marine world--interests born as she watched The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau in her grandmother's living room--these eighteen poems splash and play, enamor and sparkle like dolphins leaping towards a brilliant sun.
