Poetry. "Patricia Carlin's poetry is marked by great wit, uncompromising intelligence, reverence face-to-face with irreverence, the pursuit of insight through a labyrinth of images and ideas, and the embrace of a spectrum of voices and registers. Joy and skepticism suffuse her poems like a balance of darkness and light. Her work is original, provocative, and metaphysically compelling. Doors keep opening, even in the most unlikely spaces, and the room they lead to alter our entire conception of the place we thought we had entered"-Phillis Levin.
Patricia Carlin's previous books include QUANTUM JITTERS (Marsh Hawk Press, 2009) and ORIGINAL GREEN (Marsh Hawk Press, 2003), as well as Shakespeare's Mortal Men.
