Post Romantic: Poems (Pacific Northwest Poetry) (Hardcover)
These beautifully crafted poems tug at your heart and brain.— Pam C
In her wide-ranging third book, poet Kathleen Flenniken undertakes the difficult task of re-seeing what is before us. Post Romantic fuses personal memory with national and ecological upheaval, interweaving narratives of family, nuclear history, love of country, and a dangerous age moving too fast. Flenniken takes these challenging moments--bits and pieces of childhood, marriage, cultural touchstones--and holds them up to the light, seeking comfort in a complicated world that is at once heartbreaking, confounding, and dear.
