Poetry. "In THE RADIO TREE, Corey Marks masterfully navigates the sometimes magical, sometimes heartbreaking geographies of time and narrative—of language itself. To read this book is 'to hear a new way of saying the old things: fire and grief'—in poems 'fine-boned,' wise, and beautiful. The Radio Tree is a splendid collection."—Claudia

Overview


Poetry. "In THE RADIO TREE, Corey Marks masterfully navigates the sometimes magical, sometimes heartbreaking geographies of time and narrative—of language itself. To read this book is 'to hear a new way of saying the old things: fire and grief'—in poems 'fine-boned,' wise, and beautiful. The Radio Tree is a splendid collection."—Claudia Emerson

"Corey Marks's delightful and surprising second book, THE RADIO TREE, uses such fresh and clarifying metaphoric language that we look 'through the near world' as if into 'the afterlife of chance.' And what we find there are such lovely and strange inventions made from what's near at hand an unraveled kite string stretching over a 'tornado' of debris or 'tentacles of magnetic tape'—that Marks reminds us how poetry comes alive to us by way of glimpses and inklings."—Michael Collier

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Paying homage to Robert Frost, the books teems with meditations on natural forms, especially birds and winter scenes, examining how homes can become unwelcome places….The Radio Tree comfortably marries transcendental Americana with modern forms of free verse.”—American Microreviews & Interviews

What People are Saying About This

Michael Collier
“Corey Marks’ delightful and surprising second book The Radio Tree uses such fresh and clarifying metaphoric language that we look “through the near world” as if into “the afterlife of chance.” And what we find there are such lovely and strange inventions made from what’s near at hand—an unraveled kite string stretching over a “tornado” of debris or “tentacles of magnetic tape”—that Marks reminds us how poetry comes alive to us by way of glimpses and inklings.”
