Poetry. "With consistent dignity, Marcia Cohee explores several worlds in her new book STORY: nature, mythology, and personal experience--especially the realm of serious illness, which elicits from this poet a large and ferocious maturity. Cohee's beautifully observed imagery, her highly polished craft, her emotional depth belong to a seasoned poet who earns our respect on every page. This new book is a remarkable effort, worthy of reading--and re-reading--for a long time to come"--Holly Prado.
