Poetry. Anti-nostalgic and mutagenerative, productive of thought-experience even while centered on finalities—the limitations of human purview—these poems make sound and image about image and sound at the auratic edges of individualist glamour, in a country field. Their sensuous wit and emotional availability work against and with their flinty grit.
Beth Roberts's other book of poems is Brief Moral History in Blue (New Issues, 2001). A longtime writer and editor in communication and marketing at Augustana College in Illinois, she now lives in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
