Poetry. "Christine Gelineau has invented a new cosmology in her fascinating, ambitious, multi-part poem, APPETITE FOR THE DIVINE. Questioning contemporary warfare and eco-destruction while praising the green fuse in all that lives, this poet interrogates, celebrates, and re-calibrates our spiritual and cultural values. Gelineau models for us a marvelously poly-voiced poetry, an associative, gently narrative puzzle which allows her to pick through scenes of destruction and illumination toward an idea of a core of holiness in our 21st-century existence. In APPETITE FOR THE DIVINE, Gelineau makes time into the sublime and turns space into grace"--Molly Peacock.
Christine Gelineau is also the author of the book-length poetic sequence APPETITE FOR THE DIVINE (Editor's Choice for the Robert McGovern Publication Prize) and REMORSELESS LOYALTY (winner of the Richard Snyder Publication Prize), both from Ashland Poetry Press, and co-editor with Jack B. Bedell of the anthology French Connections: A Gathering of Franco-American Poets. A recipient of the Pushcart Prize, Gelineau teaches at Binghamton University and in the low-residency MFA at Wilkes University. Gelineau lives with her husband on a farm in upstate New York.
