About this item
Poet and musician Sherry Cook Stanforth's long-awaited first collection of poems is as haunting and resonant as the sound of the drone string itself. The sustaining heart of these poems is family in its varied forms--root and branch and the song of wind rustling leaves--rendered always with the poet's keen ear for language, eye for nuance and awareness of the world around her. Stanforth, too, does not shy away from poetry as exploration of self as she considers her place among--and beyond--the people and land that helped form her. "…She wonders who/once stood where she now stands," Stanforth writes in the book's opening poem. Drone String is both question and answer, not only to "who once stood" but to who stands now and tells the story that "tells itself again: a steel-spined/woman living in a green land." ~Pauletta Hansel, author of Tangle and The Lives We Live in Houses.
