Poetry. C.D. Wright is a fearless poet long admired for her authentically erotic verse. With a Southern accent and cinematic eye she couples strangeness with uncanny accuracy, bundling fragments of stories to create poems that are, as she describes them, "succinct novels." Wright's poems are simultaneously modern and deeply primal; they are pheromonal. Gathering work from her eight previous volumes, STEAL AWAY weaves new work with Wright's best lyrics, narratives, prose poems, and odes.
C.D. Wright is the author of a dozen collections of poetry and prose. A recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship, Wright is a professor of English at Brown University and lives outside Providence, Rhode Island.Author City: PROVIDENCE, RI USA
