A Daughter's Latitude: New & Selected Poems
Copper Canyon Press, 1999 - 259 páginas
Poetry. Enriched by a life of travel across the United States and Asia, Karen Swenson exposes local genius and folly--in all its moral ambiguity--with sardonic humor, pathos, and hope. In A DAUGHTER'S LATITUDE, Swenson combines new poems with work from four previous volumes, including the 1993 National Poetry Series winner, The Landlady in Bangkok. Toughminded yet accessible and good-spirited, this thirty-year retrospective highlights one of the most original and engaging poets writing today. These captivating poems create an international journay...Swenson's willingness to be immersed in the many cultures she encounters results in poems far removed from America or its influences--The Bloomsbury Review. Wherever she has been, Ms. Swenson has taken with her an invisible mission: poetry--The Wall Street Journal.
