9780061537172: Sea Change: Poems

"Sea Change" is a poetry of the tipping point, when what is lost and damaged in our world and our humanity is forever irrecoverable and time itself has disintegrated. Jorie Graham, acclaimed as one of America's most innovative poets, writes in her new book words for the 'silence-that-precedes' the once-unimaginable future in which the only ways of being human we have ever known can no longer be sustained. With a luminous formal beauty, "Sea Change" brings us to the threshold of a terrifying silence and affirms the fragile tenacity of a human essence that binds us to the world. It is poetry urgent and essential.

Review:

A mesmerising American voice. Helen Vendler, The New YorkerOne of our most highly imaginative and innovative poets. Her speculative and sensual poetry echoes an aesthetic and cultural past but is, truly, like nothing we've seen before. Los Angeles Times
