POLISHING THE GLASS STORM A Sequence by Katherine Soniat
A burb from D. Nurkse: author of A Country of Strangers: New and Selected Poems.
“What does it mean to be human, to have infinite possibilities, to contain every creature you ever loved, down to those who have never existed,…and have that happen in a single moment that lasts forever? I love Soniat’s willingness to live in the vast of the questions of Gllgamesh, the Egyptian Book of the Dead, the Bardo, evolutionary biology and quantum physics—and then too to ground her work in the specifics of individual historical experience. Soniat has the audacity to create mythic language for the soul’s adventure which is utterly unguaranteed and adamantly open to the unknown…Polishing the Glass Storm is a departure for American poetry, masterful and visionary.”
I am delighted to see my new book from LSU Press just out. Pierce Jonassen did the fine cover. FOR MORE
