All Aberration PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

All Aberration free pdf These are poems of family, of romantic hope and disappointment, of parenthood, and of grief that move from a childhood in Nebraska in which a father strides into a ripe wheat field- to the parks and parking lots of New York City, the interchangeable landscapes of suburban America, and the more sensual environment of secluded water- to little traveled parts of Africa and the Pacific where our customs and passions are refracted into shapes that are sometimes beautiful, sometimes grotesque. Terese Svoboda writes of a world in which the reassuring simplicity remembered from childhood is difficult to recover. Outside of this vision of the past, all present life seems an aberration--an existence where violence can supplant love, families break apart, a child dies. "All Aberration" received a starred review in "Publishers Weekly," a lead in "Contemporary Poetry 1986" and a Notable Book nomination by the American Library Association. It was written during stays at Yaddo, MacDowell and Ossabaw, and received the benefit of a Creative Artists Public Service grant in 1982. Its poems first appeared in such magazines as "Harper's," "The Nation," "Paris Review," and "Ploughshares."
