Item description for The Origin of the Milky Way by Barbara Louise Ungar...

Winner of the Gival Press Poetry Award
"Barbara Louise Ungar's The Origin of the Milky Way is a fearless, unflinching collection about birth and motherhood, the transformation of bodies. Ungar's poems are honestly brutal, candidly tender. Their primal immediacy and intense intimacy are realized through her dazzling sense of craft. Ungar delivers a wonderful, sensuous, visceral poetry." -Denise Duhamel, author of Two and Two, winner of the 2007 Milt Kessler Poetry Book Award

Reviews - What do customers think about The Origin of the Milky Way?

Much Better Than Dr. Spock  Apr 6, 2008
Whether you are a mother, or plan to become a mother, or once-upon-a-time had a mother--you will revel in this parade of poetry about pregnancy, labor, and first-time parenting. The straight-talking "I" of these forty-five short poems is a woman who is totally devoted to her new son. She is usually witty and fun; often awe-stricken and tender; and sometimes apprehensive for the fate of her child in a tough world. She covers a wide range of common experiences: prenatal yoga, the antics of breastfeeding, post-partum depression, the terrible two's, and the sorry-Honey-I'm-too-tired-tonight syndrome. And the poet knows how to write with panache. In each poem, the first line is irresistible, and the rest of the poem is delivered with an easy flourish. The majority of the collection's pieces are free-verse poems, but a poignant sonnet "Prelude" and a stark prose-poem "News" are also included. I highly recommend this enjoyable, accomplished volume.
