About this item
Poetry. Winner of the Marsh Hawk Press Poetry Prize 2016. "With a naturalist's precision, a subtle sense of the way the line pushes its music against silence, and with great emotional restraint, the poet of AFTER studies the world—the spathes of skunk cabbage, windfall apples—and finds there the lineaments of grief, a lexicon for his own nearly unbearable loss. But it's no accident this book opens with a poem to Keats, who understood that beauty which carries the news of sorrow is still beauty, still a source of joy. AFTER is an artfully made, intelligent and aching embodiment of a question that can't be answered: is the lovely persistence of the world a source of consolation or of deeper grief?"—Mark Doty
