Whosoever whole

The poetry in Elizabeth Scanlon's Whosoever Whole asks how we arrive at and nurture a sense of self amid a culture that wants us only to consume. Navigating the fractal and often fractured experiences of a citizen, a parent in the time of climate change, and a woman in an embattled era, Scanlon invites the reader into an interior space filled with anger, joy, wonder, and hope. Employing met

I don't want to be understood

"A transsexual woman pieces together fragmented details of a repressive religious childhood and an unsupportive family, drawing from autobiographical experiences of the poet's life. I Don't Want To Be Understood is a work of resistance against the conventional trans narrative, and a resistance against the idea that trans people should have to make themselves clear and understandable to others in order to deserve human rights. This is a compelling, urgent collection about the body and survival th

 
The island - war and belonging in Auden's England

"Using Auden's work of the 1930s and 1940s as a case study, The Island describes his mid-twentieth-century shift from lyrics of poetic nationalism to a poetics of lyric cosmopolitanism."--

For ten years, Mitty has found refuge in their quiet existence after a traumatic relationship that marked her adolescence. Now, they're theoddball pair in the dilapidated bungalow-the last vestiges of a town taken over by the tech elite.

You are here - poetry in the natural world

Edited and introduced by the twenty-fourth Poet Laureate of the United States, Ada Limo´n, this book challenges what we think we know about "nature poetry," illuminating the myriad ways our landscapes--both literal and literary--are changing.

Black bell

Inspired by the nineteenth century image of an enslaved woman wearing iron horns and bells, Alison C. Rollins's Black Bell continues an exploration of cataloging individual experience and collective memory. As Rollins sets out to resuscitate and embody the archive, we see a chorus of historical figures like Eliza Harris, Henry "Box" Brown, and Lear Green; readers can listen in as Phillis Wheatley takes a Turing test or venture through Dante's Inferno remixed with Wu-Tang Clan's 36 Chambers.

"'There are places,' Cindy Juyoung Ok writes, 'where shaking is expected, loss is / assumed.' In the 118th volume of the Yale Series of Younger Poets, Ok moves assuredly between spaces--from the psych ward to a prison cell, from divided countries to hospice wards. She plumbs these institutions of constraint, ward to ward, and the role of each reality's language, word to word, as she uncovers fractured private codes and shares them in argument, song, and prayer. Using visual play in invented form
