Naming Rites : Poems (Paperback) (Gary Boelhower)
about this item
Gary Boelhower’s second major collection includes sixty-five poems that explore the ways we are named and branded with multiple identities, a clay vessel molded and imprinted from the inside and the outside by those who know us or think they do; by wounds, worries, stones, and nicknames; by place and absence; by teachers and traitors.
Gary Boelhower has taught ethics, leadership, and spirituality at the undergraduate and graduate levels for thirty years. He is the author of Marrow, Muscle, Flight: Poems, which won the Midwest Book Award for poetry.
