In this mesmerizing debut collection, chosen by Mary Oliver for the National Poetry Series, we’re witness to an expansive travelogue of the human spirit that moves throughtfully through multiples ages, cultures, and beings. Each poem explores in depth, through pensive, evocative images, aspects of the human condition and their place within the rich continuum of animal existence. W.B. Keckler presents these poems in a fugal form, uniting the individual works in what he describes as a “holistic formalism” that reveals the poems’ powerful collective meaning. Lives and afterlives are explored with equal care as Keckler attempts to restore the concept of “spirit” in a modern world often overwhelmed by materialistic priorities. “Readers will find these poems lively and pleasurable. They are deft and rich in language, grounded in the actual—even the ordinary—yet admitting into their brief structures a deeper existence of strangeness, or mystery. Which is to say, that they have entered the true realm of the poetry. In a literary age pleached with sameness, this book is a bright and swirling original.”—Mary Oliver

"Selected by Maxine Kumin as one of five volumes published in 2003 in the National Poetry SeriesArranged in four parts--each associated with a particular Louisiana city--the poems in Rhythm & Booze trace the hardships and uncertainties, As well as the moments of unexpected sublimity, Of a life lived in a continuous struggle between fresh starts and destructive old patterns. Mirroring the music of New Orleans, Kane's poems combine traditional form with improvisational flourishes. Rhythm & Booze charts her progress as she undertakes a number of journeys, from youth to experience, from blues bars to college classrooms, from city to country, from chaos to something approaching peace.

Meredith Stricker's Tenderness Shore is a fierce and luminous collection of poetry that explores the iconography of the Muse as a wilderness retreat for the imagination. Opening with a series of exchanges with Sappho - Plato's tenth muse - in letters, shopping lists, postcards, choreography, and maps, then delving into the landscape of Lesbos using a lexicon to track the roots and impulses of the lyric, the collection closes with encounters among a chorus of muses: Sappho, Camus, Piaf, and birds speaking in Hungarian. Tenderness Shore affirms that the Muse, or the human capacity to muse, can be found in any part of life - nature, photographs, art, memory - that resists being measured in terms of profit and loss.
