Two amazing contemporary poets

WaxwingsWaxwings by Daniel Nathan Terry

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


A beautiful book of poetry that deals with the personal and often painful through careful observation and remembrance. It captures confusion and anxiety about love and sex with vivid natural imagery. Very highly recommended.



SignalsSignals by Ed Madden

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This book, winner of the South Carolina poetry book prize, captures the poet's confrontations with race and sexuality in the South. Madden has a remarkable sense of place; his poems catapult the reader into the often dark places his poems inhabit, in terms of geography but also of history. Beautiful and haunting. Very highly recommended.
