Item description for The Scented Fox (National Poetry Series) by Laynie Browne...
Selected by Alice Notley for the National Poetry Series, Laynie Browne's sixth collection casts a spell. In these fragmented poetic tales, characters disappear and reemerge, their charms reconfigured, their stories unraveling, their happy endings elusive. The book's coda consists of a fantastical poetic dictionary, asking readers to redefine their sense of meaning.
Laynie Browne was born in 1966 and grew up in Los Angeles. She is the author of six collections of poetry, including Daily Sonnets and Mermaid's Purse. She has taught creative writing at the University of Washington Bothell and Mills College.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Scented Fox (National Poetry Series)?
A compilation ranging from stream-of-consciousness prose to free-verse poetry Dec 3, 2007
Contemporary Poetry Series competition winner Laynie Browne presents The Scented Fox, a compilation ranging from stream-of-consciousness prose to free-verse poetry to sparse "interludes" that express much with little. Mysterious in its evocations of repetitive patterns, stable within a poem yet shifting from work to work, The Scented Fox explores both within and without the self, evoking a timeless mood through rhythmic imagery. "Lullaby": O the windward - it is a sooth / that harbors through the wintering // O the saith it is a dormer / that bids the sooth to enter // and let us sake the seer my fro / and let us sister together // the singer lasts the secant long / somnambulism lasts formally // and let us saint the seam my frieze / and let us sip together // the singer lasts the secret long / but this somewhere lasts foretellingly
