Description


Poems radiate a love for life, the world, and the temporal nature of existence. Roots of memory and nostalgia become the architecture of the mind as Thomson explores the past to better grasp the future. Featured books in the collection focus on desire, language, and landscape; while others explore loss in the context of myth, sexuality, violence, politics, and community.
