Overview


Poetry. "These poems manage to say everything about everything-each determining day, each shifting sense of inexhaustible person. Back of it all is an extraordinary ear for the way words find place, make a passage from here to there, blessedly keep on talking"-Robert Creely. "Few poets are strange and quick enough to capture the frenetic quality of contemporary life. Her poems move fast, think on their feet, hit and run with equal parts of humor, glamour, and horror. In every way, she is a thoroughly original voice for our time"-Elaine Equi. THE LATEST WINTER is Nelson's follow-up to SHINER (also available from SPD). Nelson's work has appeared in many anthologies and journals including AMERICAN POETRY: THE NEXT GENERATION, THE HAT, OPEN CITY, and SHINY.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
"I'm not going to write anything out of guilt, I mean grief" writes Maggie Nelson in her second warily exuberant collection. Passing the late Kenneth Koch and Eileen Myles on her way "Deeper/ into the dream," Nelson makes The Latest Winter into "wagons, kabobs, sugar-dips, cannons" and sets herself "apart in a/ made up way."
