About this item
Poetry. Winner of The Berkshire Prize, Tupelo Press's First / Second Book Award, chosen by Dan Beachy-Quick. Kristina Jipson's HALVE peels away the layers of orderly narrative with which we try and tame the chaos of mourning. At once frank and elusive, Jipson's poems resist the pull of storytelling and personal confiding, instead using formal variation to embody emotion and memory. These poems lay bare the experience of losing a brother and evoke the haunting that results as language fails to contain either grief or the love that precedes such a loss.
