The Voluptuary

Poems
Petersen, Paulann (Book - 2010 )
The Voluptuary


Item Details

These are the poems of an enraptured heart and mind, of clear eyes and ears doing the soul's seeing and hearing. They vividly prove the unchanged function and relevance of poetry: to crystallize unsayable, non-verbal inner states, and to sanctify every world it touches. The Voluptuary brings us necessary visionary news of a profound sanity rooted in ecstatic love for creation. --Li-Young Lee About the Author(s) Oregon's sixth Poet Laureate, Paulann Petersen is a former Stegner Fellow at Stanford University whose poems have appeared in many publications including Poetry, The New Republic, Prairie Schooner , and Wilderness Magazine .
