Item description for Penguins in a Warming World by Anca Vlasopolos...
In these 66 poems, Anca Vlasopolos describes life and loss, ecology and extinction, in heart-breakingly beautiful images that cause readers to catch their breath at every line. The subject matter ranges from nature, both beautiful and blighted, to blighted urban areas like Detroit (sometimes beautiful in their blight), to characters (actual, fictional, mythological), to the poet's mother. Like all good poetry, it explores the human condition; like all great poetry, it offers insights into that condition that surprise the reader with a truth suddenly revealed.
