Elizabeth Spires


Winner of a 1996 Whiting Award. In her fourth choice of poems Elizabeth Spires addresses the basic topics of existence and of literature: delivery, demise, production, and intimations of immortality. the 1st part specializes in the reports of belief, being pregnant, and childbirth from the issues of view of either mom and baby. the second one part deals a reversal and answer within which the poems flow out right into a divided and divisive international. those poems are amazing via an immaculate lyricism, a pristine feel for the flora and fauna and the rhythms of language.
