Poetry. Patricia Corbus's starting point is home, where "in pearly clouds / called fog we sit / on unseen chairs / ...We stay, we go." When she goes, there are no limits to her flights, which, for example, may take her to "the vast loneliness of fledgling planets." Corbus, as one of her titles puts it, is an escape artist, whose flights may also carry her to radical origins, as when she falls "into God before he thought / of dividing up... / before he raised a window in himself and looked out..."Wit and driving force, newly minted metaphors, vocabulary forged in energy, and unflappable nerve make these poems something genuinely new. FINESTRA'S WINDOW will be an energy source for generations to come.
Patricia Corbus lives in Sarasota, Florida, where she grew up in her parents' shell shop, The Nautilus. She graduated from Agnes Scott College, holds a Master's degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and an MFA at the Warren Wilson Program for Writers. She has loved poetry for as long as she can remember.Author City: SARASOTA, FL USA
