About this item

"Wright gets better with each book, expanding the reach of her art; it seems it could take in anything."Publishers Weekly

"Wright belongs to a school of exactly one."New York Times Book Review

"C.D. Wright is entirely her own poet, a true original."The Gettysburg Review

In a turbulent world, C.D. Wright evokes a rebellious and dissonant ethos with characteristic genre-bending and expanding long-form poems. Accessing journalistic writing alongside filmic narratives, Wright ranges across seven poetic sequences, including a collaborative suite responding to photographic documentation of murder sites in New Orleans.ShallCross shows plain as day that C.D. Wright is our most thrilling and innovative poet.

From "Obscurity and Elegance":

Whether or not the park was safeshe was going in. A study concluded, for a parkto be successful there had to be women.The man next to the monument must have brokenaway from her. Perhaps yearsbefore. That the bond had been carnal is obvious.He said he was just out clearing his head

C.D. Wright has published over a dozen works of poetry and prose, including the recent volumeOne With Others, which won the National Book Critics Circle Award and was nominated for a National Book Award. Among her many honors are the Griffin Poetry Prize and a MacArthur Fellowship. She teaches at Brown University and lives outside of Providence, Rhode Island.
