Poetry. In PERDIDO, Elaine Terranova's seventh collection, the poet ponders the predicament of loss—"I want the dead but I am beside / the living." But for Terranova, perdido does not mean loss merely. Like the music from which she borrows her term, these poems bound with resilience.
Elaine Terranova has published seven collections of poems, including PERDIDO (Grid Books, 2018), DOLLHOUSE (Grid Books 2013), which won the 2013 Off the Grid Poetry Prize, and DAMAGES (Copper Canyon Press, 1997), as well as two chapbooks. Her work has appeared in a number of literary magazines and anthologies. Her translation of Euripides' Iphigenia at Aulis is part of the Penn Greek Drama Series. She has received the Walt Whitman Award, an NEA, a Pew Fellowship, and a Pushcart Prize.Author City: Philadelphia, PA USA
