About this item
A charm can protect, inflict or influence. Charm, the second collection by poet Christine McNair, considers the craftwork of conception from a variety of viewpoints--from pregnancy and motherhood, to how an orchid is pollinated, to overcoming abusive family relationships, to the manual artistry of carving a violin bow or marbling endpapers.Through these poems, McNair's poetic line evolves as if moving in a spellbound kaleidoscope, etched with omens, fairytales, intimacy's stickiness, and the mothering body.Praise for Conflict"A knockout debut. Christine McNair is a one-woman fireworks spectacle." --Grady Harp, Literary Aficionado"Christine McNair is going to write poetry that will both entertain and illuminate us if Conflict is any indication." --Michael Dennis, Today's Book of Poetry
