Book Description

1 Aug 2012
WINNER: 2012 FORWARD PRIZE FOR BEST COLLECTION

PLACE begins with a poem dated 5 June 2009, located at St Laurent Sur Mer, better known by its code name Omaha Beach, one of the sites of the American landings in Normandy on 6 June 1944. It is the starting point for a book of poems written in the uneasy lull of a world moving towards an unknowable future. Jorie Graham explores the ways in which imagination, intuition and experience help us to navigate a life we will have no choice but to live. How does one think ethically as well as emotionally in such a world? How does one think of one's child - of having brought a child into this world? How does love continue? As we look back, and are compelled to try to see ahead, PLACE calls us, in poems of great force and beauty, to inhabit and rejoice in a more responsive and responsible place in the world.

Product Description

Review

'It is a challenging collection of unusual force and originality, forging connections between inner experience and a world in crisis.' --Leonie Rushforth, Chair of the 2012 Forward Prize Judges

Graham's poetry is among the most sensuously embodied and imaginative writing we have. -- The New York Times

Like all good poets, she illuminates moments, but she is like no one else, neither in her rhythms, nor in her insistence on opening up, scrutinizing, and even reversing our experience of time and space within these moments. --Stephen Burt, Times Literary Supplement
