Barbara Rockman - Sting and Nest: Poems

Wednesday, April 27, 2011 - 6:00pm
"Barbara Rockman writes a deft sort of lyric that is compressed, compassionate, and unsentimental. Her subject is the ebb and flow of domestic life, but there is nothing familiar or conventional about her approach. Above all, she has the capacity to wrest celebration from our failings, sorrows, and confusions, to find those moments when, as she puts it in her closing poem, 'the hope-broken sky [grows] radiant.'"—David Wojahn, Pulitzer Prize finalist, author of Late Empire and Spirit Cabinet
