Reviews - What do customers think about Nude in Winter?
A welcome introduction to one of the most distinctive voices in American poetry today Mar 4, 2007
The poetry of Francine Sterle is as memorable as it is unique, as superbly crafted as it is lyrical. "Nude In Winter" will prove to be a welcome introduction to one of the most distinctive voices in American poetry today. 'The Uncertainty of the Poet: Giogrio de Chirico": Near the dark arches of the arcade,/a headless, plaster torso of a woman./By her dimpled hip, two dozen/green and yellow bruised bananas.//Off in the distance,/a train with its ample banner of steam/speeds left into oblivion. Menacing,/monumental shadows master what we see./Wait: the wish of reason is revered./The poet aims her words at what's unworded,/startled by the horizon's vaporous wall.
