Poetry. In Karin Randolph's Marsh Hawk Press Poetry Prize-winning collection, David Shapiro finds "that it is always present tense as an empiricist casting a shadow and casting for shadows." The language of Randolph's prose poems is subtle, supple, and ever-inventive, and the speed and acuity of her perceptions will startle. "With the speed and daring of a champion Indy driver, Karin Randolph races around the bumps and curves of Language with courage and invention. Like such poets as Bernadette Meyer, Alice Notley and Anne Waldman, Randolph simply reinvents language as she bounces along, and it's up to us, her passenger/readers, to hold on and enjoy the ride"--Bill Kushner.
